Our four types of tomato plants have all started to produce, so I thought it would be fun to do a little side-by-side comparison. The largest is a Caspian Pink heirloom tomato – beefsteak sized and true to it’s name, more pink than red in color. The medium sized tomato sitting in the top right position is a Paul Robeson heirloom tomato. In the close-up shots below, notice the subtle stripes and lovely dark red color. Aren’t these beautiful? I’m loving these sliced on sandwiches.
We planted two types of cherry tomatoes this year: the orange ones are Sun Gold and the red ones are Sweet 100s. These little cherry tomatoes are so darn tasty, we gobble them right up; they get rinsed right in the yard and devoured on the spot. In the image below, I tried to show the Caspian Pink and Paul Robeson in profile – this really highlights the size difference between the two. By comparison, the Caspian Pink is similar in size to slightly smaller than a Yellow Brandywine – my favorite from last summer.
