Farmer T loves his green tomatoes. Not unripe tomatoes, but the juicy, green when ripe varieties. Much discussion ensued this spring after a proposal that, in the name of experimentation, we should only plant a single Aunt Ruby’s German Green, one of Farmer T’s favorites. Farmer T won out and we currently have two ARGG plants.

Grub’s Mystery Green has been a fine addition to TomatoTown. It is a relatively new breed discovered in Australia by David Lockwood, better known as Grub, and appears to be related to Paul Robeson. As a new strain, not all Grub’s Mystery Greens are created equal, however, this specimen appears to have the standard characteristics of the variety.

Here at TomatoTown, we have six green varieties in our plots this year. Many gardeners wonder, how does one know when a green variety is ripe? The answer is that they blush like any other tomato, but with subtlety. Usually, the blush is the lightest pink or a pale yellow. A gentle squeeze is the next test. If the fruit is even the slightest bit soft, your tomato is ready.

    We loved GMG as well…Grub’s, Absinthe, and Cherokee Green were all absolutely stellar.

    Green rules. Although Farmer J is a big fan of the black varieties.
