it is a green skinned, purple centered fruit. very juicy, no tartness - but also not overly sweet.
balanced is an apt description.
this is the first year we got these. the tree has a good loading of them, so we should see more of these over the next few weeks.

all of the beds have been planted and seven yards of bark has been spread in the walking areas around the beds. the 2012/2013 winter was a dry one for us in northern california - so my reduction to only 10 tomatoes is a good thing. over all things are looking up for the garden, i seem to have a pretty good population of ladybugs and their larvae roaming around.
some of last years challenges were cukes and squash which were being devoured by sowbugs/pillbugs as they seedlings emerged from the soil. i am preemptively spreading OMRI certified iron phosphate and hopefully that will solve the problem.
heres hoping you have a green year too!
