The No Secret Tomatoes

Hi Sonja,

What a coincidence….Box #1 is mine…and there is no secret. I’m not sure what you saw as a “knack for tomatoes” but if you are referring to how prolific that cherry tomato plant is, it’s more to do with the kind of tomato it is rather than anything special I did. A few years ago, at Plantation Garden Centre, I bought a Husky Gold cherry tomato just because I hadn’t seen one before. I couldn’t get over how many tomatoes one plant produced…so I’ve been growing them ever since. Last year Colin’s supplier didn’t grow any so I ordered some husky gold tomato seeds from the states and grew some from seed this year. Not the same tomato at all. The plant looks different and the tomatoes look different. Same name, so I’m not sure what’s going on. But the Plantation Garden Centre on 4th street N.W. is the only place I’ve ever found then…and I’ve looked.

Hope that helps
