Hi Karen,

Had our first Tundra tomato. It is a fused mega blossom and ended up being the largest tomato my garden has ever produced, 1.75 lbs. I know not the intended shape and size but plenty growing on the plant that look the part.

Now onto flavor. Had three tasters and we were all blown away. What an incredibly delicious tomato. Rich, sweet, acidic all at once, juicy yet great texture. Definitely among the best flavored tomatoes I’ve grown. Pat yourself on the back! We can’t wait for more ripe ones.

I ate my first Tundra today too! It had a small amount of sunscald on one shoulder, but that did not affect the taste, very good! It was just a little under one pound, at 13.4 oz.





So far, I have also had a couple ripe each of KARMA Peach, and KARMA Miracle. Both very tasty. KARMA Apricot is just dragging it's heels and being coy!

I took some photos last weekend. We had a very sunny, hot week, so they look different now, they started to change the color. I will show more photos soon.

Newest named one and going to F6 this is “Bloodstone” smaller potato leaf plants, the earliest and most uniform of this group. . Delicious rich flavour, purple- red and meaty with a clear epidermis and a slight green shoulder remaining at full ripe.
