True Colors 5/5 - most variable times, 3 slower
Polaris 5/5 - 2 slower
Taiga 4/5 - 2 fast, 2 slow pokes


The first true leaves are now about 1/4 long for the older seedlings and they need to be transplanted to individual quarters, but our recent snow storm wiped out my foot path to my greenhouse where I prefer to do messy dirt work, so they'll have to be patient and wait a couple of days.
What a fabulous report! Makes me feel so good!

True Colors is growing extremely well here (with my current limited sunlight), a very healthy and vigorous PL.
Looking forward to seeing and tasting the fruits!

Default True Colours

Karen and Marsha,

I’m really impressed with how my True Colours plant is growing. It is the tallest of all my plants. At this point, I count 15 fruit developing, and I’m sure that will increase. I can’t wait to taste this one.

My True Colours is about to bloom, among the first.. The leaf pattern is really original and unique, distinctive from other PL varieties I have grown - a Summer Cider is growing next to it and it is the 'common' PL type.
Really curious now to see the flowers and fruits.

Wowzers! That is a nice tomato! As a Canadian (and a fan of your tomato breeding) I will be happy to try that one next year if you like? Pete

About 75 Dtm.
I really love this one and hope it comes through again in the F4. Needs to stay amazing to keep that name.
Early days, only time will tell.
