Nice!  Sure beats buying tasteless maters from the supermarket.

My understanding is that Early Girl is pretty tasteless.  Anyone have a contrary opinion?

I grew them last year and they did very well. I don't remember them being tasteless but then again I can barely remember what I did yesterday.  Smile

I didn't noticed poor taste but when compared to store-bought winter tomatoes they were a dream come true.

Never grew them, but have eaten them, I like their flavor, can be maybe watered down, not as sugary as some large varieties. But nice overall tomato taste.  Huge huge improvement on anything you can get in a store!  IMO.
