Taste the Unique Flavors of June Bug Tomatoes - Charley's Work Has Helped Introduce These Around The World
June Bug is a tomato variety, a cross between Jaune Flamme and Black Cherry. It produces dark orange large cherries that are thick skinned but very productive. The seed gel tastes like Jaune Flamme and the meat has a nice black cherry aftertaste. It is easy to grow out 7 generations in Texas due to its ability to take the summer heat well and set 6-8 fruits per truss.
The variety was first introduced by Charley who gave away some seeds last year. People were interested in trying it out for themselves so Charley provided more seeds for them. He also supplied additional information about the plant such as how it grows, sets fruit, survives the Texas summer heat, and compared it with Porter tomatoes for taste and growing.
For those who wanted to try June Bug, they received their seeds in the mail from Charley. When cut open, the tomatoes are still a little green and when eaten this way they taste like Sun Golds but larger.
Two people reported difficulty germinating the seeds leading Charley to wonder if anyone else had experienced similar problems. To help others get started growing June Bug he offered an extra plant to someone living near him in Austin.
It's great to see someone sharing their own unique variety of tomato with others!Charley's generosity and willingness to help others is inspiring. He has been a great resource for those wanting to try out June Bug, providing information on how it grows and tastes as well as offering extra plants or seeds when needed.
June Bug tomatoes are now being grown in many places around the world! People have reported that they taste like Jaune Flamme with a hint of black cherry aftertaste, making them an interesting addition to salads or sandwiches. They also make excellent sauces due to their thick skinned nature which helps keep the sauce from becoming too watery during cooking.
The variety is easy enough for beginners but still offers something unique compared with other tomato varieties available today. It’s no wonder why so many people are trying out this new variety of tomato! Charley should be proud of his work in introducing June Bug into the world - he certainly deserves all the credit he gets for it!
