These Juliet tomatoes are incredibly prolific. They just produce and produce and don’t seem to fussy about temperatures. Very resistant to problems. The critters seem to leave them alone too. I will look for these again and plant several next year. Make sure you give them large cages and tie up well.

Comment on Cherokee Purple Heirloom Tomato by Ohio Girl https://bonnieplants.com/product/cherokee-purple-heirloom-tomato/#comment-143376 Sun, 16 Aug 2015 20:23:54 +0000 http://dev3.bonnieplants.com/product/cherokee-purple-heirloom-tomato/#comment-143376 I had never heard of these, but thought I’d give them a try. WOW! Very sturdy plant – but has to be, since the fruits grow in a bract of 5 or 6 med-to-large tomatoes. Weighty…so supporting the branches is key. The taste is out of this world…meaty and sweet. Growing three plants out of a 2 cu. ft. bag of potting soil, a la Jerry Baker. Doing great!

Culantro has a concentrated cilantro taste, and so you may use less. Growing culantro is similar to growing cilantro–they both bolt easily and you have to keep pinching the blooms.

Haven’t had anything that good since discovering the German Johnson. Live here in NC now. Great yield from each plant, nice meaty tomatoes, continue to ripen nicely on the counter and taste scrumptious. Grew several kinds the last few years while establishing our garden after moving to NC. These are simply the best.

So many plants yields far more than our big boys. I had bought four tomato plants called big boys, then relized we have the famous Heirloom purple tomato. Yay us!

This season I tried the Cherokee Purple Tomato variety. It is my favorite of all time! I slice them about 15 minutes before I am going to use them in a sandwich. It seems to let more flavor come out. I wish I had planted more then one. I grew about 15 varieties of tomatoes. It was a tough year in parts of New England this season so next year may bring a better yield.

Comment on Straight Eight Cucumber by Ron Reppucci https://bonnieplants.com/product/straight-eight-cucumber/#comment-143349 Thu, 13 Aug 2015 12:17:59 +0000 http://dev3.bonnieplants.com/product/straight-eight-cucumber/#comment-143349 Last year I planted on the ground and didn’t have much luck. This year I started with two small straight eight seedlings and 2 small tomato cages but because of the long winter here in MA I didn’t plant until May 15th so I didn’t expect much. It’s now August 13 and I have an 11ft MONSTER VINE growing up the side of my house bearing more cukes than I could ever eat! My neighbors call it the “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” plant and expect it to take over the neighborhood.

I stumbled across this variety, and it is quite POSSIBLY, the BEST tasting tomatoes I’ve ever eaten. Although the plant absent produces an overabundance of tomatoes the ones it has produced are very large 1 to 3 pounds!!!

Comment on Sweet Banana Pepper by Donna C https://bonnieplants.com/product/sweet-banana-pepper/#comment-143343 Wed, 12 Aug 2015 02:44:31 +0000 http://dev3.bonnieplants.com/product/sweet-banana-pepper/#comment-143343 Sorry, but my yield is pretty much nil. I have 2 plants in their own 5 gallon planters for 3 1/2 months now. Each plant has produced 1 pepper. In the plant’s defense, the day temps have been in the 90’s to 108’s. The Sacramento area has some hot summers! I moved both plants into my courtyard that has diffused sunlight by trees. It’s a lot cooler there. Each plant has several flowers, so being in a cooler environment might just be the trick. I have also moved 2 tomato plants there. Proved to be a topic of conversation by visitors. I’ve always had such good results with Bonnie plants, maybe these will turn around.

I had Rutgers (good), Mortgage Lifter (OK), Mr. Stripey (not worth the garden space), Romas I grew from seeds from last year (amazing), and two other varieties in addition to the German Queen. Next year I’m only growing Roma, German Queen and Rutgers. Gives me a broad spectrum of size and flavor for different uses.

It keeps producing and producing its wonderful tasty peppers. Every time I go into the garden it seems as though I find more peppers on the plant. I certainly hope I can find this pepper next year. We only have one plant this year, and it is enough for us, but I may have more plants next year so I can share.

Been growing for 15 years…almost all my life. To whom this may concern, give tomatoes time turn red. Also, try using eggshell… 1 to a plant. Set it in sun for a day and it’ll crush easier. Mix it in the first three inches of soil. It supplies the calcium a plant needs to grow. Hope this helps.

Comment on Tabasco Hot Pepper by aFirefly https://bonnieplants.com/product/tabasco-hot-pepper/#comment-143329 Sat, 08 Aug 2015 19:16:54 +0000 http://dev3.bonnieplants.com/product/tabasco-hot-pepper/#comment-143329 Loving these peppers. I’m not a huge fan of Tabasco sauce, but I was curious about the peppers themselves. This is a pretty plant and really pretty peppers too. I’m growing this in a container. Earlier it seemed somewhat stressed out by being in too small of a container — getting yellow leaves with some spots. When I checked it, the roots were getting really cramped. So I transplanted it into a larger container and the plant perked up, leaves got greener, peppers grew better, etc. The peppers themselves are a beautiful yellow-green to start. They get a bit more yellow-orange when ripening. Then totally, almost day-glo, orange. I’m assuming they get more orange-red or red once they get fully ripe. I ate one at yellow-green, and there was a lot of heat, but I didn’t notice as much overall flavor. I ate a fully orange one and there’s still a lot of heat and more flavor too. The flavor reminds me a bit of Tabasco sauce, but also of the flavor of habanero peppers — maybe like a mix of the two. Not as hot as habanero, but more heat than Tabasco sauce. Juicy peppers.

Comment on Mild Jalapeño Pepper by aFirefly https://bonnieplants.com/product/mild-jalapeno-pepper/#comment-143328 Sat, 08 Aug 2015 19:02:28 +0000 http://dev3.bonnieplants.com/product/mild-jalapeno-pepper/#comment-143328 Growing these in a pot and they seem to be doing quite well. They are definitely milder than the regular jalapenos that I’m growing in another pot. I got these because my daughter doesn’t like anything too spicy. I don’t notice much heat in these at all — same basic jalapeno “flavor” as the regular ones but right when I think I’ll get a blast of heat there’s just a tiny bit of zip instead. The peppers are a slightly different shape than regular jalapenos — the mild ones are more cylindrical overall and less conical or pointy in shape compared to regular jalapenos. These also seem to have fewer ribs inside than the regular ones. These would be great for jalapeno poppers or stuffed jalapenos when you want to eat a whole pepper but don’t want too much heat.
