It's Tomato Season here.

As you will soon see, it's tomato growing season here at The Junction and we're having a great season too. We've had a mild and moist Summer here this season and together with some humid weather, it has been great for tomato production. I've posted a great selection of the ones we liked and have rated them out of ten, to our taste.

Japanische Zwiebel

First on the list are Japanische Zwiebel which translates to Japanese Onion which I've been waiting on and just picked these earlier in the week and as far as taste goes they're nice, but we'd rate them 6.5/10. They have a firm flesh which soften when ripe.

Ozgrow Cherry 9/10

Next on the list is a pink Cherry that grew as something else, so rather than just call it an unknown because I can't find the true name, I'm going to name this one Ozgrow Cherry after my garden forum. A lovely tasting cherry.

McSee's Grape 8.5/10

Then comes another unknown from a stray seed, this time it's a Grape tomato so as it doesn't have a name either, I'm going to call it McSee's Grape. I like this one very much and think I'll be growing it again. Taste is great.

As there are so many photos to post, I'll just add their names under the photos and if there's any further comment to make about any of them.

Ghost Cherry 8.5/10

Powers Heirloom 8/10

Miel du Mexique (Honey of Mexico) 8/10

Malakhitovaya Shkatulka 10/10

Morado 10/10

Old Ivory Egg 7.5/10

Black Cherry 9/10

Chocolate Cherry 8/10

Totem 9/10

Sara Black 8/10

Little Heart 7.5/10

Le Case de Apulia 8/10

Grub's Mystery Green 9/10

Rosado de Ademuz 8/10

UK2000 9.5/10

And these aren't all of the varieties grown here this season.
