We've only planted two successions of Amish Deer Tongue this year. The first was just harvested at the end of August. Sadly, it was a short succession since, for whatever reason, the seed didn't want to germinate this time around. The second succession should be ready in early October. The plan is to put a few into the high tunnel this time around and have the rest mature in the field.
We have not really noticed much difference in taste based on the time of year. Weeds are the biggest problem for this variety and the surest way to get the plants to bolt early.
