I'm so excited to see many of the Black Krim tomatoes turning a beautiful shade of dark red. We got some rain Wednesday and during the early morning hours on Thursday, but no violent winds like earlier in the week. It was nice to see the pots all watered when I went outside Thursday morning. Some of the Black Krims are starting to crack, which I've read can be caused by a sudden surge of water after a dry period. I don't want the cracks to expose the insides and invite bugs to make themselves at home. We picked the cracked ones, and we're leaving them in a sunny spot in our kitchen to finish ripening. We're growing the Black Krims from seed. According to the seed packet, these tomatoes are supposed to have a natural salty taste. I can't wait to taste them!
Update: They didn't really taste that salty, just tasted like regular tomatoes. We diced them up into an omelet and they were very juicy.
