for first ripe tomato.
I didn't say first red tomato, as one of the contenders is Nicholayev, a yellow cherry tomato. The other is Principe Borghese, a small Italian drying tomato.
(Please pay no attention to the blighted leaves. You'll hurt the Principe's feelings.)
These photos are from yesterday morning--they're both looking much riper today. I'd have taken photos tonight, but I couldn't hold the camera steady and swat the mosquitoes away at the same time.
Care to wager on which one will ripen first?
