Tomato time is here. Many of those I am picking are quite unattractive. I am getting lots that are cracking and many that are cat faced. The orange tomato in the foreground is cat faced–having ugly brown scars. These are caused by cool temps during fruit formation. Our erratic weather this summer caused this. As far as the splitting, weather wins again. Temperature swings, extremes, and plenty of moisture are causing the fruits to crack. Neither of these change flavor and are completely cosmetic, but they are annoying. I am still sending plenty of cherry tomatoes down to the restaurant, but I may not be able to send as many heirlooms for slicing as I had hoped.
