I’ve always grown tomatoes in my garden and I like unusual varieties like Beauty King. This year I’ve got a bunch of cool tomatoes growing out back. Some are now starting to ripen so it’s getting more exciting. Note that this posted has been updated for 2023.
Growing tomatoes is not as hard as I thought originally, but there are some tricks. I’m going to do a separate post fully on tomato growing tips. Some key ones are pick the sunniest spot in your yard, work on the soil every year including via green cover crops, don’t over-water or over-fertilize, and mulch.
Beauty King tomato for breakfast
Below I’ve posted pictures I took just this week of some of my favorite unusual varieties. We just had some Beauty King tomatoes as well as Lovers Lunch and Berkeley Pink Tie Dye for breakfast today and they were amazing.
Beauty King tomato review. Why is Beauty King my favorite? First, it has such a beautiful array of colors. Oranges, yellows, and reds. It’s like a great sunset. I also like that these tomatoes can grow up to one pound. They average about 10-12 ounces. The flavor is also wonderful. It’s a nice mixture of tangy and sweet.
