Some True Norths here in the south, where they like it just fine. Foliage is super wispy PL.

Midnight Sun(one of 2 plants of MS) is the top one.

Tundra is the next.

AHHHH!!! nobody but me has ever grown them and it makes me indescribably happy that you are the first. Also indescribably nervous that you like them...
they look great. Just like a Canadian, they seem to enjoy Florida in the winter.
So far so good with any foliage problems it looks like?

You are welcome Sharon. Karen is such a thoughtful and careful breeder, her stuff is excellent. I feel so humbled that Karen is letting me grow these.

I don’t know that I deserve such praise at all but I am excited and nervous for you to try them Marsha. I trust your taste and I also know that you have tried a great many of the best tomatoes out there. I cannot hope that mine are equal to many of them but I do hope you find them tasty and it’s very exciting to see them grown by somebody other than me. I do feel strongly about releasing unstable seed as you know so I am very happy to have a trusted friend to try them.
Karen

Well, I've just read through this entire thread.. I'm sad that I didn't find this sooner, as these tomatoes would be PERFECT for my fall/winter growing season here in Phoenix. Today, the high here is 68 and the low was about 36.. Seems like the ideal kind of conditions for these amazing 4 varieties you've bred, Karen. Spectacular job.

If you decide at some point that you'd like to share more seeds for future grow-outs, please keep me in mind.
