when did you start your seeds? your tomatoes look great. I have only been able to pick a dozen fo far this season, 1 or 2 a day for the last week. the rest are still green. I started my seeds in mid august but, the seeding tray was overturned accidently and I had to restart my seeds again the first few days in September and transplanted them to the ground in mid October. I also wonder if the temperatures in the 50's at night, the last week or so, has effected the ripening.

I also have had problems with my toms refusing to ripen this year. It was like they just stopped and did nothing. I cut a few and they had the proper amount of gelatinous liquid and seed, but would not turn red for weeks. The last couple of days, they have suddenly started to ripen. I have no idea what is going on xunsure.png.pagespeed.ic.ttYYb5Lbfu.webp

Tomatoes can't ripen when it is too hot - above 85 to 90 F according to this link http://cvp.cce.cornell.edu/submission.php?id=91

The couple weeks of the cold nights and temperatures in the 50'sF seem to have stopped ripening and growth. The last 3 or 4 night, the temperature has gone up and I have a lot of tomatoes starting to turn red. However, the cool nights leave more dew on the leaves and the sun does not dry them out quickly in the morning and I have gotten leaf rot. Leaves turning yellow with brown spots. I did some research and read to prune off those leaves or the leaf rot can spread. I pruned them all off yesterday and hope it does no spread any further. on the good side, my Big Boys are turning red and I picked one a couple days ago. One slice would cover a entire slice of bread and, with one tomato, I made 3 sandwiches and 2 cheeseburgers. post-137554-0-61528900-1388969564_thumb.post-137554-0-64623600-1388969585_thumb.

Hello All, SD2 it looks like a great meal! After a fast look see at the Korat Ag Show today,

they had a very good selcetion of OP & Hybs. 4/5 blacks, yellow, cherry, beef heart and

beefstake. The one that surprised me and one of the main reasons I joined TV after living

and growing here over 6 years, was the Roma tom Thread and nobody could grow them.

At the show today, they had some San Mazana paste toms that put roams to shame in

the sauce world.

My long time favorite and one of my first hydro attempts using lettuce nutes, Black Krim.

Their growing tec for a school has really showing great improvements from the first show

I went to here. Got to be a bitch to get the timing right for the show.

To wander off a little from toms, their brothers from the other of the path, they had sweet,

the closest to looking down the rows, 3 colors of habs and 4 nagas.

They had some of the OP tom and chili seeds 4sale and some naga plants also.

Last, some of my Black from Tula

If there is anyone left that did not OD on tomatoes;

Bellow is a snap of slightly overripe green cherries.

Exquisite flavor.

Having had problems trying to grow tomatoes here because of virus and wilt, I have finally found a tomato plant which appears to be doing OK. The seed package certifies that this variety is wilt and virus resistant. My plants have flowers and hopefully will now produce fruit. I got my seeds from Parks Seed Company in the US and had them mailed to me by a friend. They can be found here: http://parkseed.com/parks-whopper-cr-improved-tomato-seeds/p/05380-PK-P1/

It helps all of us if you stick to the topic. If you want to publish your salad recipes that is great. Just start a topic about that.

So you think we grow them only for looking ? OK, look bellow from early this morning, I hope yours will look as well when you grow them.

Best regards.

Hello All, SD2, I don't mind the extra food input on the growing part, must just be another uptight

BKK poster, I always thought it was the OP's job to mention if the thread was going OT!

One of my latest OP's, Black from Tula, will be going back to the Black Krim's next time for better

flavor.

I'm on TGS in FL mailing list and just got their new @-flier, new Indigo toms seam to be coming out

in many sizes.

A new source of DIFFERENT toms can be found at www.wildboarfarms.com in N. Cal.

Also in TGS @, they showcassed their new products, one that caught my eye was a tom rootstock

seed which I'm planning on trying, this will work with OP and Hyb. toms.

Two links on grafting and I'm trying to track down rootstock seeds through AVPDC BKK office, have

posted before about grafted toms in the hot/rainy season. AVPDC has several O/L articles about

grafting toms.

loong, sorry if we highjacked your post.

Find some exiting varieties bellow, including new indigo.

As we always have way too much produce in the garden and we live in a smallish village where we know everyone; I often bring out a large tray of whatever exotic is growing, for Thai people to try & taste new things.

The purple cherry tomatoes are a giant hit; surprisingly a large percentage of people are comparing them to the large grapes you see everywhere and are saying; are better tasting (true) and no giant seed in the middle!

Best regards to all.
