Persimmon Tomato

Here's another from a couple months ago, Persimmon Tomato:
The SESE website says that early fruits of this plant can weigh up to two pounds. That's a big tomato!
One hard thing about tomato illustrations for SESE is making them unique for each variety. With over 150 varieties of tomatoes they can all start to look very similar. So, at the suggestion of Ira Wallace I began adding little hints in the paintings for what the best uses of the tomato might be, a cutting board for a slicer, a jar for good sauce tomato.

That looks like a really tasty tomato, Jessie. I love the color and the cutting board.
