    we cant grow tomatoes here unless they are in a glass house which i dont have. we potentially may have managed to grow some outdoors this summer as it was so freaky hot but i didnt have any plants in. i dont think the horse or the rabbits would have eaten them either. i should prob pay more attention next year. in fact, i will try to do more veges next year. i do have a decent supply of wild watercress, puha, native spinach and also LOL seaweed i can fossick. plus some southern glasswort or samphire to the gourmet crowd. if i put in some maori potatoes and some garlic, i pretty much am done.

    tomatoes are a tropical plant, even a light freeze will kill them, so I only grow them spring/sumer. I have a greenhouse, but it is an "unheated" house so if temps get below freezing at night it can/will freeze in the house. most of the stuff you listed, I would have to look up, as those names are unfamiliar to me. From the pics I've seen of NZ... very green and lush, so I suspect the land is very fertile, and growing things there would be easy.

    lol... smuggling? If the price is right.... though I can't imagine that there would be a big market for blackmarket tomatoes and the like.

    Yeah, not quite as hardcore as illicit booze or drugs, you could be waiting a long time for someone to score some toms!

    Topless!!!

    I've grown many heirloom tomatoes... I love them.
    But one of my favorites is a little one, not cherry just small (like palm sized) but in longish clusters kind of like a cherry, called Juane Flamme.
    Good LORDSSS I tell you it's GOOD!
    Orange/gold outside, red inside... strong bold tomato flavor.
    Makes a brilliant ORANGE sauce... Though. I only ever manages that once.
    Hell, they rarely made it in the house. I tended to shove them into my mouth, whole and hot and decadent, right out in the yard.

    Crap. Now I want more of them, and will not have the. this year.
    Plan ahead: order seeds!

    Tomato with a zip.
    I think that descriptions 3-4oz fruits is a bit generous... maybe a few 4oz. mostly 2-3oz.
    It's a dryer tomato... not hugely water/juicy. But glorious IMO. The flavor concentrates in the juices it does have.
