More tomatoe breeds

It is warm but wet outside, no good for growing tomatoes around here. In Germany we have many problems with a fungal desease caused by potatoes which infects tomatoe plants too always related to rainy weather. and humid air conditions. Usually the desease will happen shortly before the tomatoes are ready to be harvested in August. As far as I can see, we are still on the safe side and the tomatoe plants are healthy but this may change quickly. Most of the plants are placed covered and shielded from direct rain by a green house, but we raised too many plants, some have to sit around the house and just have to endure it.

Todays harvest:

Here are the latest breeds ready to be harvested:
a redish small medium sized brown tomatoe - outside and inside chocolate colour. Very delicious, very tomatoe.

And another very tiny yellow breed called "gelbes Birnchen" - little yellow pear, variety name in England "Yellow submarine" also a very sweet cherry tomatoe. The shape is funny.

Thank you for sharing your photos.

Yes, I know that tomatoes should be protected from rain, but I can't do that because of the cost involved...

Without rain protection it is really hopeless around here.
