Have any of you grown the Tomato "San Mazano"? It is an Italian Plumb variety which grows to about 6 inches in length (top to bottom) and 3-4 inches wide. My neighbours are growing them this year, they are still green but appear to be about full size and.they have promised me a couple when they ripen. If you have grown them, what is the flavour like (I know this is a very subjective subject). Are they thick or thin skinned and have there been any problems with them?
My own Toms, Gourmet, which I have grown for the past 4 years have had good flavour through the seasons each year but this year the flavour has been a bit disappointing. From late May to mid June the flavour was poor but it improved dramatically with the heat in late June through to the present.
I grow in the GH with heat from early March to late May when the temperature reaches about 60 degrees (15C in modern English!) it is then turned off. They cropped with ripe fruit this year in mid June and are now at 7 trusses and `pinched out`.
Any help would be appreciated.
