Tomato Harvest: Raccolta di Pomodori

Here are some pics of my late August tomato harvest. I was surprised to see that my Old Ivory Egg tomatoes must have cross pollinated with my Pera d'Abruzzo. The result was yellow Pera d'Abruzzo. Not one of them came out completely red. They all had streaks of yellow which I never saw before. This year I specifically planted Old Ivory Egg but never factored in that it could turn my other tomatoes yellow. Not a big deal as they were all delicious.

  1. They sure turned out pretty-you were lucky the flavor wasn't "off"--I had that happen with some of mine and the resulting toms were sour and bitter.
