• I grew out Kaleidoscope Jewel Tomato in 2018 and was pleased with it's results. I really loved that they were prolific and had relatively good disease resistance. Plants are about 5-6 feet tall and produce beautiful antho fruits of red and black. In our garden, they began  ripening their fruits about 75 days after transplant. As far as taste, these were milder and earthy, with some sweetness. They are very juicy.  Very good, but not excellent! They certainly made great fresh salsa. Which was my primary purpose, along with juicing, for growing them. They make fantastic tomato juice They are also a great market variety for anyone wanting them primarily for garnishing. All in all, a good tomato!
  • Thai Dragon Pepper.

    I use peppers in everything I cook at home. Flakes, sauces and powders are all in my daily culinary affairs. So I am constantly looking for new flavors and different levels of heat in my peppers. The one variety that I  always use is Thai Dragon. I make flakes and powder, which I use in all of my cooked dishes. I love dumping some dehydrated ones in my soups. Thai Dragon pepper has to be in my kitchen at all times. Perfect for traditional Chinese, hispanic and Caribbean cuisine, this is a very useful pepper. Not too hot, but hot enough to be recognized and appreciated.  Heavy producing plants. Caution. If you are not used to chili peppers this one can be out of your league, so please be careful.

In most cases first harvest could be done around 60 days after transplant. Seeds can be directly sowed once the soil is warm enough or started indoors and transplanted in the garden.
