    Nice plants. You did a great job growing those tomatoes. The black ones are now my favorites. It would be great if they were a little larger.

    Durgan it seemed my Black Prince Toms were larger last year.
    I did not soil test thes new beds and kind of rushed the contents in an effort to catch up in the spring.
    I think I may have used too much compost and not enough calcium and phosphate material around the tomatoes.
    Still, although small (3-4 oz) they are so delicious that all is forgiven on first bite.
    I also grew some Black Cherry Toms which were especially sweet and flavourful.
