This has not been an ideal year for our grand experiment. We diversified our plots by planting some sixty varieties this year, literally planting varieties from A to Z. While the plants seem to be reviving after baking in the extreme temperatures of late summer, it was far from a normal growing season.  Consequently, it has been difficult to assess the true character of the plants and their fruit.

That said, we’ve enjoyed the Zogola we’ve harvested. They are meaty and full-flavored with especially tough vines, so bring out your garden shears out when harvesting.

    Zogola was one of the few red tomatoes we grew this year. Excellent flavor, good production, but they were impossible to pick without clipping them or ripping off part of the vine. Did you guys find that as well with yours?

    I had this year the same experience with Zogola: I had to cut tomato from plantes. But Zogola is a great tomato! 🙂

    Admittedly, we planted this tomato since the variety started with a Z.
    We also found that the branches were tough, but we always have our garden shears since we try to save a little of the stem for photos.
