First Tomatoes of the Season

One of my favorite times of the year is when I can eat tomatoes right out of the garden. I harvested my first tomatoes of the season this weekend. They are cherry-sized Sunchocola tomatoes from Burpee.

They are so perfectly beautiful. Burpee describes them as a “sweet, smoky flavored cherry tomato.” I would describe them as semi-sweet with a slightly smokey flavor.

Sunchocola is an improvement on the heirloom Chocolate tomato. So far they are pretty productive and are forming clusters of six here and there. I am curious to try grilling them a bit and see if that brings out the smokiness.
