Ring In gets a name

When the time came to cut the 'Ring In' tomato (as we referred to it below) we got a nice surprise as to what was inside. Cutting off a few slices, we soon found a deep red flesh with the appearance of velvet, so we'll use this thought and name it "Red Velvet'. When we tasted the slices, we were pleasantly amazed at the deep tomato flavour in this fruit, as it was very nice. I've saved a dozen seeds from the first tomato and will now wait on a fruit carrying a pink ribbon, so I can get pure seed for my growing on of this variety.
