Fenton Friday: Dipping into a New Tomato

It has been another hot and humid week, but we had a couple decent rains. The tomato plants are starting to produce heavily now, though they are mainly still green.

The star tomato so far is the 'Sun Dipper'. It is a new variety for 2023 by PanAmerican SeedSun Dipper is described as: "an orange 'dipper' tomato with elongated fruit that is easily held between your fingers for dipping in dressing on a vegetable platter. This unique fruit shape is eye-catching and delicious." Shown at right is a set of fruits starting to ripen on our plant. I'd say right now there are roughly 20 more in various stages of growth on the same plant. I picked and ate one. It was delicious. I'm a big fan of dips and sauces, but I actually don't think this tomato needs any garnish or addition.

What varieties of tomato are you growing this year in your edible garden?

I'm plot #16. It is a 10 ft x 20 ft space and this is our 11th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.) See past posts about our edible garden by putting "Fenton" into the Search box above.
