Talk about a late bloomer. To be fair, these Persimmons have probably been ripe for a few days, but I just realized they weren't going to turn red. So I pulled one yesterday and sliced it up for turkey burgers.

They're pretty large and have an amazing creamy color. They're also probably the meatiest tomato I've ever seen.

The flesh is very firm and kind of tart -- actually almost salty.

A very interesting tomato, but I don't think I'll grow them again. This plant only ended up with 4 fruits, and honestly, I'm in it for sweet and tomato-y, not tart and salty.

Hi, your tomatoes are amazing - do you have any in containers or are they all in the ground?

How were the turkey burgers?

By the way - You have been tagged. Please visit my blog if you would like to play along ;)

I've got 2 containers. One is a crappy 7-gallon pot with a not-great soil mix that I haven't really looked after. The other is my knock-off earthbox that worked really well. Container gardening is weird.

Thanks for the tag. I'll see if I can muster a response, or at least get around to posting some shout outs to the great folks on my blog roll.
