Well after getting the surprise tomato plant a few weeks ago, I am equally surprised that it has survived long enough to flower. I might actually have tomatoes in the next few weeks! I am so excited.
These are beefsteak tomatoes (I assume since that is what was planted the last few years). They generally are ready within 2-3 weeks of flowering. Spiced, I am not a fan of fried tomatoes, but the other things are delicious. I am just excited to have homegrown salsa.Usually you will see the tomato appear within a week or so, but of course, it will be very tiny. The type of tomato it is will set how long it will take until the tomatoes are ready, though. Some varieties can be ready in only 2-3 weeks, while others can take 6-8 weeks. Roma are the longest, I think.
