LIST-ONLY REPORT: Tomatoes & Mild Peppers. (From the Short Report)

THE PEPPER REPORT only

SUGGESTIONS for TOMATO PURCHASING, PLANTING and GROWING. (From the Short Report)

OUR GOALS:

Assisting newer gardeners in choosing generally agreed” best” tomatoes.
Assisting experienced gardeners looking to find new or different varieties of tomatoes.
Assisting Nurseries and Growers in their selection of tomato varieties most satisfying to customers.

NOTES:

Over 300 Taste-Testers have participated in our Taste-Testing sessions over a period of 6 years

Taste-Testing sessions have been with a variety of groups including:
-Oak Park Crop Swap
-Sacramento & Elk Grove Vegetarian Societies
-Sacramento Slow Food
-Community Gardens

105 Tomatoes have been taste-tested thus far with 35 new tomatoes last year

Tomatoes used for taste-testing are home garden grown with selected market tomatoes used for comparison

All tomatoes for taste-testing are from locally available “starts”rather than seeds.
