'Super Fantastic' Tomatoes, August 6, 2018

Harvest Monday, Our World Tuesday, and Ruby Tuesday Too

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, May 7, 2018
I bought a 'Super Fantastic' tomato as a young plant on May 7th. Be honest now, and tell me the truth. Could you just walk away from a handsome tomato plant with such a promising name?

It is an indeterminate type tomato, and the label says: Height 6 to 9 feet. Here it is seven weeks later, and taller than I am. (The tomato plant on the left is a 'Better Boy').

I had a bit of trouble with blossom-end rot, so it was not until July 21 that we were able to get tomatoes from it. The 'Super Fantastic' tomatoes are firm and nicely shaped, and only a little smaller than the predicted size of 10 ounces.

"Super Fantastic' are very good sliced for tomato sandwiches!

Have a wonderful week!

  1. Oh, yum! There's not much that's better than a fresh tomato sandwich!

  2. ...a tomato version of 'Jack and the bean stalk.' 🍅

  3. Hello, I love tomato sandwiches. YUM! Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week!

  4. i am so jealous! i picked my first red tomato yesterday and it is no bigger than an apple!! i started all my tomatoes with seeds in early april and although the plants look great, they are not producing!! i have never had any luck with better boys!!

    there is nothing better than a tomato sandwich!!!

  5. It looks like Super Fantastic has been super for you! The vines sure look good and healthy.

  6. That looks like a lovely juicy tomato.

  7. You have me drooling! Nothing can beat home-grown tomatoes!

    (And with Isaiah's name, I'm just kidding)

  8. I've been having trouble with blossom rot on a Sicilian Saucer tomato plant. They gave me some high calcium feed at the garden centre so I am hoping that will work. The squirrels don't seem to mind the rot! ;-)

  9. That looks like a fine tomato, one I've never heard of before. Congrats!

  10. Oh my that's a real beauty! I'd love to bite into that.

  11. We are very much at the other end of the garden season here - I dug over our vegetable bed this weekend, just to start getting ti ready for spring.

  12. I expect that in my care, the plant would die. :)

  13. Beautiful sample of your crop. A fresh tomato sandwich on my mom's homemade rolls---I miss them.

  14. Handsome plant and tomato! I still can't pass up a tomato plant with a fun name, so I'm happy I didn't come across one. Four cherry tomato plants bloomed voluntarily in a perfect spot in the backyard. They're sweet as candy.

  15. Nothing beats the deep, deep red of a ripe tomato!
