Did The Late Dr. Carolyn introduce the Orange Honigsusser that grows over 9 pounds?

That is a good looking tomato, that I would cover with ""Light Light garden fabric"

Default Grasa De Calina - Farmer Shawn's seed offer

I'm growing "Grasa De Calina" this year from Farmer Shawn's Dr. Carolyn seed offer (seeds from 2016). It's described as a large, red, PL beefsteak from Romania. Anyone have any experience with this variety? I planted 10 seeds as a germination test on 2/25 and ended up with three big, beautiful plants. Not sure how I'm going to keep them happy for another four weeks until I can plant them out.

I also have seeds for these varieties from Farmer Shawn's offer. Would love to hear about anyone's experiences with these varieties.

I also received several varieties from Shawn but many more directly from Carolyn over the years. One variety on the above list, Serendipity did not come from Shawn or Carolyn that I do have some experience with.

Beginning in 2015 as part of the International Dwarf Project, Serendipity was one of my main efforts. For several years my participation helped develop this line. The first photo was one of the first attempts and the second several years later.

One of the best tasting of several varieties I was connected with, I am proud for my name to be associated with its development.

That's a beautiful tomato! I know that one (the dwarf) as "Sarandipity." I've been assuming (could be wrong, though) the one I have from Farmer Shawn is "Serendipity," a yellow/pink non-dwarf bicolor by Millard Murdock: https://www.tomatofifou.com/en/produit/serendipity/
Farmer Shawn had the dwarf tomatoes in his offer spreadsheet named with a prefix "DW," and this one didn't have that.

I received my first Red Brandywine from Dr. Carolyn, but it has regular Leafs. I have a Person in Virginia who is Looking for a very Large Deep Red Brandywines with Potato Leafs. She had Tried many Seeds Companies, but some are "Pinkish Red" not Deep Red Large with Potato Leafs..

Do anyone remember Farmer Shawn Or Dr Carolyn talk about a I LB Deep Red Brandywines with Potato Leaks?
If So, Give me a company where she can order them'.

I love all Seed Companies
So give me a List. I cannot to research for her this year, Amen!!

This is her second years looking. She Orders and Grow them from many Seeds Companies and some of our Friends here. .

Maybe she has the wrong Name, because it from her childhood.
