I tried a couple of new to me heirloom tomatoes this year. I thought I'd let you know what I think of them.
The new varieties are Ananas Noire (a dark pineapple tomato?) seen below on the left- anything but dark. And the red beefsteak is a Crimson Cushion. One I had never heard of before this year.

The Ananas Noire is also a nice solid tomato- the largest weighed in at 1.25 lbs. not too many seeds and a nice texture. It is really low acid, hardly any tang to it at all and, to my mind, not much flavor. It's really pretty and looks great layered with other colors on a plate but, personally, it's not a favorite.
My favorites, like last year, are the Black Krim. My Amana Orange, another favorite, are huge but not ripening yet. But, I have got a few...
