Beaver Creek Fire
 
I can't believe I haven't posted anything about this line before. Except that results have been all over the place from truly great, to truly disappointing.
The original cross is ([I][B]Cowlick Brandywine[/B][/I] x [I][B]Sungold F1[/B][/I]). It's at F6 now, and last year's fruit was great.

After a disappointing '16 grow Beaver Creek Fire was back with a bang in '17. Universally awesome taste, with some truly top of the line.
Good enough I was canning fruit from this line by itself and writing "premo" on the cans.

those look very nice. are you growing those again this year as a canner? what are they like as a slicer tomato?

I love the pic of the dark red stripes... gorgeous! :D
Funny how taste can swing to both extremes with certain crosses - I'm sure using F1 ups the odds of that. It's great that you kept on selecting and got these to F6. :)
