Black krim versus black prince

In our climate, the black krim tomato plants are fairly short and scraggly. The black krims started to ripen shortly after the sungold cherry tomatoes, so we're enjoying some of them on occasion.

The black prince plants are much taller and more leafy. None of the tomatoes have ripened yet, although sytharin noted that there's one that's just barely starting to blush now. The plants have loads of green tomatoes on them.

She says this corresponds well with the experiences of one of her coworkers who has also grown both varieties of Siberian tomatoes, albeit on the warmer side of the hills.

I was so happy during that year in Arizona when I got a black prince plant to make its luscious fruits. I tried black krims in Texas, but they got blossom end-rot and were uninspiring.

We've been getting zucchini, although some other animal appears to also be getting some of the zucchini. One of the chickens, most likely.

We're reaching the end of the strawberries and pluots. The blueberry harvest was all right but not amazing. In a couple of years, though...there could be enough fruit to jam some of it.
