The elongated leaves with the smooth spear point look a lot like EPB or Crnkovic Yugo on that possible Elgin Pink cross. Elgin's Purple Balls could be what the tomato world is looking for.

Not blue? here's a thought: Elgin Pink crossed with Sgt. Peppers. Blue Peppery Balls.

Just use the same knife to slice a hot pepper first, and then a tomato immediately afterward. I have done that by accident before, and had to wonder for a moment why my tomatoes were spicy.

it'll be fun to try to figure which Daddy got the job done. neighbors included many heavy hitters, Odoriko, Anna Maria's Heart, Crnkovic Y--as the gentleman from the recreational state astutely pointed out.

I know for a fact it's not stray seed or a mislabeled plant.

if I get to name something it'll be crazy, obscure, funny, and Mexican so you guys are forced to say a phrase that'll elicit a good laugh from a Spanish-speaking audience. Something like

Veneno para Arjona
or
DeLaHoya's fishnets
or
El Perro Aguayo

Default The on-deck circle

Eager beavers ready to move into new homes; housing shortage to be resolved this weekend. After getting doused with Permethrin, DE, and now Copper, and getting pummeled by a heat wave, they are doing great. They are relaxing under a tree with their feet wet in veg compost-worm castings-alfalfa tea at 1:5 + a touch of BioBizz Bloom.

Yeah I heard they had jungles down there in Mexico. Never heard of a private one, though.
