The plant is huge and rangy and growing all over the driveway like crazy bonkers, and it's full of tomatoes. The Isis Candy tomatoes are bigger than the traditional cherry tomato, and they are orangey-red in color... often reddish at the base and orangey on top. I like this variety because if you eat them when they are still mostly orange, they have the clear acidic tomato flavor of a traditional tomato, but if you let them stay on the plant and turn much redder, then they have the much sweeter flavor that we associate with cherry tomatoes. Also, they are late-bearing, so they're still going strong long after most of my other tomatoes are decidedly winding down. Now that I have experienced the glory of Isis Candy, I'll for sure plant this variety again next year! Plus, I just really like that cool name.
Alongside our totally delicious Isis Candy Pizzas, we had the first roasted squash of the season - a beautiful and sweet delicata squash from our own front yard. Yummy!
