tomato tasting results

We had our biggest tomato tasting this weekend. Had about 25 tomato varieties for tasting, and about 41 people wrote down opinions.

The clear winner was Ananas Noire! It came first in best flavor, prettiest and best overall. Best red was Rose de Berne, best yellow/orange was Tangerine, best purple/black was Black Prince. Best cherry was a tie between Peacevine Cherry and Sungold.

Some other interesting notes:
– Tiny Dancer was third in cherry tomatoes and second in yellow/orange.
– 18 different tomatoes got one or more votes for best flavor… and 13 different tomatoes got one or more votes for best overall; which goes to show how different people’s tastes are. We had kids, parents, young folks, old folks, all age groups except about 10-20.
– Thessie-O and sub arctic plenty got “yuck” comments.
– Brown berry was much favored over Black cherry.

Alas for the ones that got sick and were pulled out… no brandywine or big rainbow this year 🙁
