Today I'm taking part in Liz from Suburban Tomato's Blog Saturday Spotlight- As maybe you can see this was not posted on Saturday, better late than never I suppose. Without further ado I would like to introduce you to Big Rainbow - a large beef steak variety, not only productive but its beautiful and tasty too. I got my seeds in late as I decided after reading the Diggers Tomato book I had to have this in my garden. The seeds were started indoors mid September, surprisingly I had my first ripe fruit in mid to late January. These beauties average 200-400g.
I mean look at them!!! as I said they were productive, the 1 plant produced over 10 kilos of beautiful, big, rainbow colour fruit. I had a little cracking in the fruits after we had about 20mm of rain one day and a small amount of catfacing.
I have at admit this was the least coloured inside of all tomatoes I've seen, I wish I took some more photos! Most have 3-4 colours marbled though out. Very pretty to look at.
I'm so happy I read that book and made an impulse buy, Big Rainbow was my best tomato this season by far.
