Here is pic of a few of my German Orange Strawberry tomatoes.
Do you have any experience with this tomato?
Are these ripe?
Should I pick them now?
They are my 1st heirlooms to turn colors, and since they are supposed to be orange, I can't tell how ripe they are.
Also, they are the back of my sfg, and I only want to climb under there 1 time.
I sure want to pick them!!

Since they are supposed to be orange, they look ripe to me, but I have never grown them before. I have a German pink & it never gets red, just a pinkish red. When you gently press them, do they "give" a little? if they are hard, they probably are not ripe.

The German Orange Strawberry plants have done well. German Orange Strawberry Tomato Icon_cherry
They are still kicking out a few tomatos, but appear to be almost done for this year. A mild tomato with no splitting.
Ripening at a medium orange all over, and when pressed they "give a little"
(like chocolate pop said).

Ok, this is SPOOKY! Just recently, maybe 2-3 wks ago, I went to our local Farmers Market and this cute little old lady had had orange tomatoes. I was so intrigued, I had to get some.

They are amazing and I'm in LOVE with them. But the weirdest thing is that right this very moment, as I was reading this, I was eating a tomato sandwich made with the orange tomato!!!! And thinking to myself "how can I grow these myself????" I just scraped seeds out of the tomato in hopes to dry them and try to grow them next year.

But if anyone has a few extra of these seeds to share, I would LOVE them! I would be happy to pay for them too!

Thank you!

A true SFGer !! I did the same I made a sandwich with most of a tomato a neighbor gave to me and saved the seeds from the very last part, I got a good amount of seeds out of it too. I went to Wal Mart and bought those teeny ziplocs for jewelry in the craft section 100 for a dollar. I have them saved for next year.
I love knowing how to harvest seeds now !! I feel like Ive done one more thing on my way to being self sufficient.

Cool, another orange tomato lover! I wonder what type of tomato that was.
I would love to have some of those seeds as well.
Since this is my 1st real garden, I really don't have much for comparisons. Take a look at this site and see if there's any tomato similiar to yours.
*My tomato is supposed to be "strawberry shaped", but only the smaller ones look like that. The larger ones look like beefsteaks (for lack of a better term)!

http://www.mariseeds.com/seedcatalog/yellows.html


In order to harvest the seeds I am trying to isolate the last flowers w/ a wedding favor bag. Next year, I so want to be able to say my seeds came from my 2010 tomatoes.
Today, I opened the bag only to find the flowers had dried up and fell off in the heat. Darn, I wish I had tried this much earlier in the season.
Anyway, I bagged another flower cluster. If this one fails, my only chance now is to save some seeds from the last tomatoes, and hope they were not cross-pollinated or whatever.
I'll be happy to give you seeds if any of this works. German Orange Strawberry Tomato Icon_wink
If all else fails, I'll order more from Pinetree, they were $1.15/ Pack for 25 seeds.

How will you store and catalog the little bags?

I have most of mine now in tiny freezer ziplock bags for pills (Wal-Mart Pharmacy at approx. 50/$1.34). I have the jewelry ones too, since I'm making jewelry these days.
Lately, I just keep them in a basket, but that's not orderly. I have to rummage through all of them to get to the one I want.

I want to use little labels and print them out, but I may resort to the pen ! I have some I received from Dixie and thats why I bought the tiny jewelry bags from walmart so inexpensive I thought. I will put them in the freezer.

I took a picture of the seeds I received from Dixie ( a treasure for me )

1chichi, I love those orange tomatoes, I had orange tomatoes one time, but this year I have had a good amount of lemon boys. I like them, they are juicy and less acidic.
Your tomatoes look so pretty sliced !!!

Oh you're freezing. My freezer is always so crammed, I'd better not put them in there. The hunt is still on for a system. I'm thinking of putting them in a binder inside of some sort of sealed page protectors.

Thanks for telling me about the Lemon Boys, I found some beautiful pics of them on flickr

Oh yes those are the lovely lemon boys, I will look at them and see if they are hybrid or not, I will save seeds from those as well. Well I have a big freezer besides the refrigerator and dont have that many seeds yet. Once I have more seeds to keep I will more food to keep and an even bigger freezer. Let us know what you come up with too, it will give us all an idea too Smile I really like the variety of color in all the veggies, I like different colored peppers if I can get them too.

Ugh, right after posting this, my husbands friend came by our house. I set my beloved tom sandwich down on the counter to go say hello and when I came back my DOG had gotten up on her hind legs and taken the paper plate down and finished my sandwich!!!! (note to self, next time-finish it first before greeting company... PRIORTIES HERE JENNY!!!) Can you believe that????? I was furious! I put her in her kennel and scolded her for about an hour; letting her know I wasn't pleased. It was the last of my orange maters. Guess I'll HAVE to go back to the Farmers Market Saturday morning (YEAH!!)

Well, at least by dog has good taste!
