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.

 

Thanks

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...

Abe Tomaote's are a little short on flavor compared to the other red varieties,  Acid is not as strong either.  Seem to have a hard core but a thin soft skin.  We prefer the yellow tomatoes as they have smaller core better flavor love acid.  Our goats will eat any tomato we toss to them so they still are not going to waste.  Will pick a pail of the abs in the morning for the picture.  Then going to pull all the reed plants.  Everybody has more tomatoes than they can use and we cannot give them away any more.. so they go to the goats, but the scoop shovel full.

I don't call 9-11,  IF  they hear the bullet they know I missed.  My 9-11 is 9 in the magazine and fire one ,then another one.

Thanks for the update on the tomatoes.

 

My 911 only holds 4, but pack a punch in .270WSM with an easy pick off range of 500 yards.
