Green and White Tomatoes for 2017


A super huge Uluru Ochre

These two colours of tomatoes scare people. My standard line to the most commonly asked question about green tomatoes is "soft to the touch".  Green tomatoes are indeed ripe when soft to the touch, as are all tomatoes. Once you get over the surprise of understanding that some tomatoes are actually ripe when green and you taste them...well you might just be surprised how good they are.
When I was reviewing my preorders this year, I noticed that yes indeed, more people are ordering greens, with Aunt Ruby in the lead. That is a very good tomato.
White tomatoes are mild and sweet, really quite delicious. Just think of the possibilities.Perhaps  a white spaghetti sauce? The year we made a white salsa with beautifully coloured peppers was wonderful. I think it is time to do that again.
