Cluster Tomato plants will be trained up wires to 20 feet in the air as the season continues. The fruit (yes, Tomatoes are scientifically a fruit) is firm and plump ? and gorgeous. The vines are stout and healthy, and if you give those stems a sniff you ought to get a delightful whiff of tomato plant. When you can see the little yellow hairs on the stems you know it is fresh! Since the fruit can still draw on water and nutrients left in the vine, the greener and thicker, the better.
What about the flavor? Expect a mild tomato taste and juicy flesh. If you are expecting the flavor to compare to homegrown, summer field tomatoes you won't be disappointed.
