The name of the tomato variety is July 4th, but here it can be called June 5th!
Only one is fully red but I guess it still counts as having a ripe tomato on June 5th.
My goal was to have a ripe tomato by June 1st but I didn't quite make it. Last year's first tomato was on June 15th so I beat that mark by 10 days. By June 15th I think we'll have lots of tomatoes ready this year. Last year's first was an Early Girl tomato. This year the Early Girls, New Girl tomatoes, and Orange Blossom tomatoes are all doing well and should be ripe in a week or two.
The first variety of course is the 4th of July tomato. In a week we should have many of them but for today we just have this one little guy.
Not big enough for a tomato sandwich but I bet it will still be delicious! After all it is home grown and organic! Yum!
