This is as close to the real colour I could get
When you blend red & green paint you get brown right !!
That's what the Kumato is...a brown tomato
They may not look good but I'm here to tell you they are sooo tasty.
The skin is smooth & soft, the flesh sweet. They are expensive but cost
flies out the window when you eat these babies !!

Sliced, add goats cheese & basil, drizzle with olive oil...that's the growers recommendations!!

Excellent tones, light, composition and... well, excellent work.
Cheers, Shmuel.

Laine, I have never heard of them but this is what Google has to say ! "the kumato was first developed in the galapogus islands or somwhere like that, and apparently they made tortoises frisky when they ate them"...........
Tine Verheyden21-Jan-2006 08:31
I have tried them and they are really tasty. love the soft tones
Chris21-Jan-2006 00:25
Excellent product shot. Perfectly lit and great detail on the cross section

doen't look tasty heheh
Lee Rudd19-Jan-2006 23:02
nice challenge for the colour balance! I'll take your word about the taste, tomatoes are meant to be red!
CJ Burianek19-Jan-2006 21:51
Never heard of these before but they look very interesting.
The one in back reminded me of a plum ;)

You say Kumato I say Kumateo, lets call the whole thing off. Just the first thing that jumped into my head. I am pleased you explained the Kumato, I had no idea what they were.Sounds good, looks good.
shatterbug19-Jan-2006 06:16
Excellent shot, Laine! Never seen one of these before.
Roe..19-Jan-2006 03:46
this would look beautiful framed and hung in the kitchen...
Gayle P. Clement18-Jan-2006 19:13
Fascinating tomato. I'd love to try one!
camms18-Jan-2006 13:45
The picture is wonderful, I love the tones! They sound yummy!! That is my favorite way to eat a tomato but you have to add a crusty Italian bread. ;-)
Renee Lockett18-Jan-2006 12:49
Hi Laine, :) Nice shot. Thanks for teaching me about the kumato. :)
Karen Stuebing18-Jan-2006 11:59
It has an almost apple color to it. I've had yellow tomatoes but never seen these. It looks juicy and yummy.
Linda Willets18-Jan-2006 11:56

René Lortie18-Jan-2006 03:35
It certainly looks delicious. Great colours and tone.
Miam! Je me sens gourmand devant cette photo. ;-)
Gary Winters18-Jan-2006 03:31
Have to admit it's rather odd looking, but it sounds VERY tasty! And it's kinda cute when you slice it in half.
Ann LT18-Jan-2006 02:35
Wow,I've never seen those before.
You're making my mouth water,Laine!
Cindy Flood18-Jan-2006 02:24

Guest 18-Jan-2006 01:03
Great lighting laine. They're beautiful those brown tomatoes. We have them in our Summer too ;-)
poetry66618-Jan-2006 00:46
I thought they were plumbs at first as tomato's here are red. Nice composure and I must admit they do look quite juicy Laine!
TimA18-Jan-2006 00:21
I'll try anything once..
Pass me the salt!

(Nice image, and I bet it took ages too!)
Gail Davison17-Jan-2006 23:53
That sure looks good.
Sheila17-Jan-2006 23:46
I need seeds :-) I've seen black, green striped, yellow and red, but not seen brown tomatoes.
Love your image. Great colours and light. You should sell it to the breeders as an advert.
Wonder where they got the name from.
Oh, I'll pass on the goats cheese :-)
poochdad17-Jan-2006 23:23
