Was down by the machine shed yesterday and decided to check the tomatoes again.  See several red Abe Lincoln that were ready.  Those thing are huge !  Picked 8 and had a 5 gal. pail full.  Didn't get pics of these and they are on their way to the GF's niece.  Enough light rain to make is sticky and miserable to be out.  Round yellow ones will have to wait till evening.  Pics of the first pick on another post.

How are the Abe's tasting?  Are they juicy or granular?  How is acidity?  How is sweetness?

Am wondering as it may be a good plant for me too.

With the way Ole Abe has been treated this week (defaced statues, burnt bronze busts, etc) I would be wary of telling anyone those are the plants name...
