LATE GREAT TOMATOES……….
JAPANESE BLACK TRIFELE loaded with fruit. Not a staged picture ! The plant was really that loaded all together. For all you tomato growers, this variety grows well anywhere from the coast to Paso. It may be its best late in the season but it is worth it. We also have lots of cherry, roma and small slicers being harvested now.
