At this time of year it's difficult to remember how good these taste perfectly ripe and straight off the vine... and that distinctive smell too...

Not too sure about the clique
Nice one Eric - I wonder which will follow - depends probably on what Sainsbury's has in stock.

And I've had this one on the computer for over a year wondering if it was quite good enough. Sad

Now would this 'meal' be considered overindulgence by supermodels' standards? I mean, it IS more than HALF a tomato, you know...

Not even a whole tomato! The smell, by the way, is from the vine itself, which is why even the best tomatoes smell (and, therefore, taste) less good once they're off the vine.
