More tomato love


Today we sampled out first Sioux tomato. This was a gloriously red medium - large sized tom with a beefsteak shape about it. It was the most tomatoey tasting tomato I have had for years - truly delicious and definitely one I will be growing again next year.
There was a bit more competition to taste this one, as Dad was around too, but it certainly passed the James test with flying colours.

  2. Hi Jacqui! I am spending my lunch hours "catching up" with your archives.
    I too love tomatoey tomatoes, but as i get older, have trouble with the acidity. On a scale 1 to 5, with 5 being high acidity, where would you rank this Sioux?

    From the photo it looks like it has few seeds (yes?) which is what i prefer.
    Thanks! ~nutMeg

  3. How nice of you to spend your lunchhour with me nutMeg:) I would rate this as a 3.5 - 3.75 - yes not too many seeds and really very prolific in our greenhouse. I am growing this one again. I guess you could happily grow it outside. xxx
