May as well post my gallery of Compass catfaces. In the pics, the grossly shaped ones are shown up side down to compare the rate of self-sculpturing madness, in a year that was oh so perfect for it.
CC 3 is the obvious choice for shape quality, having mostly small blossom end scars too, and shown sliced. All the Compass are smooth fleshed, dark hearted and dense. Only CC5 was really never sweet, the others had ups and downs, one fruit tasted outstanding which afterwards could not be replicated in CC1. The more consistent taste wise were CC3 and CC4, so I have kept seeds of them for future reference.
CC3 has also been crossed into the Rodney line, for a chance to produce a somewhat larger fruit with more locules in a determinate plant, but selecting to recapture the great Rodney taste may be ??? well it's a job to do, requiring space and willingness to sample many maters.
