Houston Tomatoes

Category: General – Robert – 4:39 pm

The tomatoes are pouring in from my Houston vegetable garden.  All varieties are producing well.  Most of us think the cherry tomatoes (Sweet Treat and Orange Paruche) are the sweetest.  Moneymaker is producing large quantities of 2 to 4 ounce tomatoes.  They are very red throughout but I think the flavor is a little bland.  These three varieties are shown below:

Moneymakeer, Sweet Treat and Orange Paruche

The large slicer varieties are just now ripening but look very good.  No problem with stink bugs or other pests that hurt quality.

Cucumbers are also producing.  Beans have finished the first round of picking and we are hoping for a second.  The Romano Italian beans were excellent and offered a little different flavor than standard green beans such as the Derby I plant every year.  Bought some Prevail beans at the Farmers’ Market—a good, very dark green variety.

The amazing Swiss Chard is still producing.  Okra plants are growing nicely.
