Tomatoes are Here!
Updated: Oct 7, 2019
Store your tomatoes at room temperature and out of direct sunlight. Placing them in a bag or on your counter top stem-side down will allow them to fully ripen. If fully ripe and you can't eat right away, you can store tomatoes in the fridge for a few days.
Here are the varieties planted for 2019:
Oregon Spring: an early maturing tomato developed at OSU and described as rich, meaty, and full of tomato flavor. Medium-sized deep red fruit.
Black: A sweet, thin-skinned, Russian heirloom. Large rose colored fruit with darkening green shoulders.
Mortage Lifter: Large, smooth, pink-red fruit; meaty and flavorful.
Ananas Noire: Also known as Black Pineapple, it's a multi-colored heirloom with "shades of green, purple, orange, and yellow." Large; sweet, and tangy.
