I've seen Patti1957 in various cubits that I frequent. I like the way she thinks in the Word Association cubit. I like that she is active in the All about Cubits cubit. And I was intrigued to see she has a cubit about Hawaii when she lives in Oregon......

A fascinating article, well done both of you. I may have to try Maui one day, it sounds like a fun place to visit.
I have grown red, orange, yellow, striped, fuzzy peach and even green tomatoes, but have not heard of blue tomatoes before! It looks very interesting. How does it compare to others? I am curious about it.

They don't taste as good as Mexico or some of my other favorite large sweet heirlooms but I had heard that they were really awful tasting and I was pleasantly surprised to find them not that bad. I grew some others this year that I considered worse in the taste department. Sticking tongue out They have a sweet taste that lingers and they definitely taste like a tomato.

It sounds like this may be more of a novelty than a good one to grow for eating, so I suppose I will pass on it. I also have a very difficult time growing heirlooms, as just about every disease possible seems to exist in my region. Thanks for the information, though.

If you would like to try them I can send you a few seeds? These are not heirlooms they are open pollinated, they were developed at Oregon State University by Dr. Jim Myers and was bred by conventional means, it is not a GMO. They are kind of fun and taste okay so I will grow them again.

I do enjoy trying different types, and my son enjoys the different colors. Thanks.

Do you grow tomatillos, as well? The larger (golfball sized) ones are used for green salsas. I have also grown the small ones called pineapple, which are very tasty eaten straight.

I do grow tomatillos but we mostly just sell them. There are folks that consider them weeds and I have to admit they do reseed readily around here Hilarious! I like the looks of the plants so I grow them.

Hi Evelyn,

I am in that swap and I do have OSU Blue on my list of haves but I think that they are all spoken for now. I'll have to check.

Hey, are you the same Evelyn that posted pictures of OSU Blue over on the 3rd Annual Tomato & Pepper Seed Exchange thread @ DG?
