Dr. Wyche's Yellow

This is the first year I have grown this variety, and this is the very first fruit I've harvested. Haven't tasted it yet, but it sure is a beautiful tomato! I am certainly going to save some seeds for next year.

DR WYCHE'S YELLOW TOMATO (Solanum lycopersicum) was developed by the late Dr. John Wyche who owned the Cole Brothers Circus. Produces meaty, rich tasting yellow-orange one pound tomatoes. Heavy yields even without elephant manure, which is supposedly what the good doctor used in his garden soil!

What a beauty shot ...

Don't know what I'd do ... mix it with some Santore's in a panzella salad ... or maybe sliced for caprise?

Bread, mayo, bacon (if you're not abstaining) sandwich ... mmmm so many choices!

LOL... yes, still abstaining! Haven't had a single bite of beef, chicken, or pork since the beginning of Lent. Also still completely off white flour and sugar.

My garden has sustained me more than ever before.
