    This is my first year ever to grow tomatoes. These 6 German Johnson plants continue to produce prolifically! Large, juicy, very tasty tomatoes! I've given many away, eaten quite a few, have some reddening on my counter, the plants are still full with fruit, and I have gallon bags of them in the freezer, plus more freezing on a tray, ready to put into bags until I am ready to use them in cooking! Our grandson wants to eat them daily! I've sent them home with my daughter and son-in-law and they want more!
