This year we had no cool season to speak of, the yields are kind of low but still plenty to enjoy.

Below some of the ripening ones.

Nice harvest, i would like to grow tomatoes when I retire next year, but I have been told that they are very hard to grow in Thailand and I have no green fingers at all, not a clue about gardening apart from cutting the grass

They will grow in Thailand . I have seen Soidog's tomatoes and they are indeed impressive but his soil is very different from ours, (Also Buriram province). If I had the inclination I would try aquaponics but how many tomatoes can you eat? The best I can do is snatch a small crop of Thai tomatoes in the 'cool' season before the plants stop growing.

"but how many tomatoes can you eat?"

In our case; a lot!

Enjoy the picture!

Great photos! Those tomatoes look delicious.

My tomatoes are finally ripening - I have the feeling that they're a little late this year.

I hope to be able to update this thread with some great photos over the next month or so. Me and the missus have a couple of hundred plants of 12 different varieties doing pretty well. For now, here's a photo of one of my friends plants. He used to grow them commercially but now only a few for personal consumption.

I am growing tomatoes up in Samoeng this winter so I cannot use bad weather as an excuse. I just simply haven't had the time to give my plants the care they deserve and I've paid the price with a low yield and lots of deformed fruit. All but the first photo are of varieties not normally found in Thailand but the writing has been washed off the plant labels so I can't tell you what they all are. These are Thai cherries I just squeezed from old tomatoes and threw into the corn patch..

These are Window Box variety..

post-86157-0-94203800-1456965769_thumb.j

This was meant to be some kind of Beef tomato. No idea why it is deformed...

post-86157-0-92472500-1456965831_thumb.j

I think it should have looked like these..

post-86157-0-11213500-1456965946_thumb.j

and lastly, I think the Indigo Rose are starting to finally turn black...

The missus just told me that the photo I said was of a deformed beef tomato is actually a healthy Tom Pom. Good job I didn't rip that thing out and bin it then!

The Sun Cherries, Tom Pom and Chef's Choice Orange came out not too bad considering the 45 degree temps up in Samoeng...

post-86157-0-75466300-1458824314_thumb.j

My favorite by far is the Indigo Rose which are now nice and black...

Very nice, out here it's way too hot; I can still harvest some of mine but the leaves are mostly burned by the sun.
