    Saw a guys video that had ripe yellow tomatoes. He liked it because the birds figure red is ripe so he doesn't lose any tomatoes. Guessing yellow will give you the same no birds eating your crop. Meanwhile I have to wrap tomatoes in row cover material or pick slightly early due to bulbul birds. I think some of the bulbul's are a little social figuring since I will cut cracked tomatoes and lay them on the lawn for them they kind hold off on chewing up fresh ones. The bird is out of the India. Sure has a big appetite for lizards when hunting in pairs like it's a competition.

    You stick a bunch of females together and don't want any problems? Good luck. They are going to mess you up.

    yeah I have some maters going currently that are so purple they are almost black

    called Indigo Rose, bred by some US university to be the only true anthocyanin producing tomato in the world, after it was researched that anthocyanin has cancer fighting properties etc

    looks great, but small tomatoes like a large golf ball; can't speak to flavour yet either as they aren't done. But hey, they fight cancer right

    another good purple variety is apparently Cherokee Purple... or another one I am growing currently, Black Pear, but that really only gets streaks of purple/black on top I think along with an overall kinda darker colour than normal tomato red, but pear shaped tomatoes and a massive big plant stature, damn fine to eat and resists cold and rot better than many other varieties apparently; I couldn't tell you from experience, I'm kinda new to growing tomatoes or any kind of food. But we are having some decent success with it already at least, and I have a bunch of ambitious plans hahaha god is probably laughing at the little man making his plans right about now too

    I'll report back on the Rose when I get to eating some, seems I can't get the Olmeca from my peeps or I'd have took your word for it and thrown it in the next seed order

    Nice one

    Description/Taste
    Rosso Bruno tomatoes are roughly the size of a golf ball and are perfectly round in shape. They offer a robust old-fashioned tomato flavor, and can be used at multiple stages of ripeness. At its first sign of ripeness the Rosso Bruno tomato is firm, sweet and tart, and it has its signature red-brown coloring with green shoulders. As it ripens the green fades, the flesh becomes tender-firm, juicier and more flavorful. At its peak maturity, the Rosso Bruno is deep brown in color and soft to the touch with a low-acid, exceptionally rich and sweet flavor. The indeterminate tomato plant produces the fruit along sprawling vines.

    Kumato is the Spanish Olmeca Tomato. Plagiarized~ The claim that this is a new tomato is bull Crap...

    The tomato sold as Kumato is the Olmeca~The further claim that seed from the kumato will not produce true~because they say it is a blending of two tomatoes that no longer exist is false~this in fact the Olmeca and will produce the the Olmeca when planted.

    Spanish Plant Variety Rights Litigation Continues
    by SHAWN SULLIVAN posted on JUNE 5, 2013

    Spanish Plant Variety Rights Litigation ContinuesAccording to news reports, an appellate court in Granada, Spain recently affirmed a lower tribunal’s denial of a request by Swiss multinational Syngenta for provisional measures against a company it claimed was infringing Syngenta’s European Community plant variety rights. Syngenta con Kumato vs Ekologic Seeds con Tomachoc, Teleprensa (May 9, 2013). Syngenta, however, notes that the case is not over.

    Plant Variety Rights Litigation ContinuesSYNGENTA’S CLAIMS. Syngenta sought to prohibit Almería-based Ekologic Seeds from selling its “SHIR” (or “TOMACHOC”) tomato variety on the theory that SHIR was essentially derived from Syngenta’s KUMATO-branded tomato products, which are grown from hybrid tomato plants of the protected varieties SX387 and/or OLMECA. However, in a November 15, 2012 decision, the Juzgado de lo Mercantil de Granada rejected Syngenta’s request.

    RULING OF THE PROVINCIAL COURT. Syngenta appealed the lower court’s order to the Provincial Court of Granada. In an April 19, 2013 decision, the appellate court dismissed the appeal. According to accounts of the decision, the court found no evidence that Syngenta’s OLMECA or SX387 varieties were used in the breeding efforts that led to the development of the SHIR/TOMACHOC variety. In addition, European Union officials purportedly compared Ekologic’s products with those of Syngenta and found 88.20% similarity. Such similarity is considered within the range of an acceptable degree of differences for a single group of varieties. The Provincial Court thus determined that the differences between the accused tomatoes and Syngenta’s protected varieties were “significant.”

    Monsanto is also trying to market a twisted version~this is theft.

    The man who invented the Rain Bird sprinkler was brushed aside as well.

    We just returned, from Southern California, to find the cold and I'm sure frost had burned the tomato plants~I'll pick the fruit some of which is green and do with it what I can.

    I recently asked ladies who live in the south, or have come from there, for recipes~Fried Green Tomatoes, I've tried them and found them very tasty~very tasty indeed```
