last spring i bought a seed packet that was a mix of six different heirloom tomato varieties. i sprouted a bunch and ended up putting seven of these plants in the garden. i was *hoping* for no more than two of each variety. now that most of them are ripening, i see that i have one black from tula, two that have yet to ripen, and FOUR dixie golden giants. the worst part: these enormous yellow tomatoes are not tasty. they’re my least favorite of all the varieties i’ve tried. they’re fine for sauce, but forget about trying to eat them raw--they have this weird, sweet, smoky-bacon-ish flavor.
