A few months ago D brought home a surprise from work. Sometimes he brings home flowers, lunch leftovers, lettuce plants, and so I was wondering what on Earth would be coming home this time. Voila, a tangerine tomato plant and a poblano pepper plant. Fortunately, I had just enough space to put another tomato plant in the garden, and the pepper plants went on the deck with the jalapenos.

Tangerine Tomato Plant

Fast forward a few months and voila, tomatoes! I had to go look online and see when they get harvested since we never grew orange/yellow tomatoes before. The skin is well almost tangerine colored, and our tomatoes were about the size of my fist.

The Tangerine is supposed to be a sweet tomato, but we did not really notice a sweetness to it. We tried it separately and on a sandwich, but it was ‘eh.’ I was seriously blown away by the Steak Sandwich tomatoes we grew this year, and very much intend on growing them again this year. We’re still on the fence with this, but the kids liked it and of course we’ll finish them all!

Tangerine Tomatoes

They’re really pretty inside.
