the flavors are all a little different and all really delicious!
You must try them if you can find some.

I think that they are really sweet. Just sprinkle on a little salt and pepper and eat.

Ah! I didn't know, thanks for telling me.
Two countries divided by a common language. :)

Thanks for the link.

The tomatoes here are ripening because we've had lot of heat the last couple of weeks. Your tomatoes will be along soon!
