Tomatoes are the favorite in our edible garden. We technically eat the fruit of the tomato plant, but it’s used as a vegetable in eating and cooking. This vine plant is fairly easy to grow and will produce a bumper crop with proper care. We have three different kinds of tomatoes.
This one is Beefsteak Tomatoes, from Ferry Morse seeds. The stalks are real sturdy and they are starting to flower now with the first batch of tomatoes appearing. Can’t wait to see how big they will grow.
Currant tomatoes （野生番茄）
The second type is currant tomatoes （野生番茄）, mini in size, each smaller than a grape， bigger than a pea. They look like cherry tomatoes, just smaller. We discovered two huge bushes, growing wild next to the paddy field.
The third type is the local tomatoes, the common varietal found everywhere in Taiwan. Noticed that their flowers are similar to the wild tomatoes but different from the beefsteak tomatoes. They grew well on our farm and have yielded a lot of tomatoes. Each weighing around 80-100g.
