The Verdict

Continuing with a recap of last year, I am ready to assess some of the crops that were planted. I started some cherry tomato seeds for a friend. He praised the "Mexico Midget" variety so I tried them. Here they are planted on a trellis.

If you look closely at the bottom of the plant you can see a few green tomatoes already starting.

Here's another photo later in the season.

My friend was correct about the vigorous growth habit of the Mexico Midget. Unfortunately the flavor of the fruit was lacking. There were a lot of tomatoes but they didn't taste very good. The best way to describe them is that they tasted like winter tomatoes. The kind you would buy from the grocery store in the off season. Even my friend acknowledged that he was disappointed with the end result. So the verdict from the field trial is - once and done.
