Default Picardy

Uncle Earl's always showing-off his canned Picardy, so I thought I'd give it a try. The semi-indeterminate plant does seem to yield pretty much all at once. Nice-looking reds. Cheers, Grub

Default Picardy Taste

Hi Earl,

I thought Picardy had a very good everyday all-round tomato taste, more in the tart spectrum, bit like a Nepal to me.

I can imagine it canned and it's a tomato I would like to work with, add to things, use as a base for something, whether say sliced on pizza, chopped in pasta, rendered down and frozen as a sauce, or turned into a salsa.

I also think it might work in a pot. It yields well and holds on the truss and bench well. It's a good deep red colour and quite juicy.

There my thoughts, Uncle Earl.
