Excited to be finding more GWR micros in the F3 growout. These from the Aztek cross. The larger of the two PL micro plants with the larger fruit has really very good flavour. The smaller is very tart.
This group sown mid April.
All of these have fruit larger than a cherry size and are fairly productive, some more than others. Looking forward to more ripe surprises soon.
More photos on Northern Gardener if interested in the project.

That is a lovely color for GWR, KarenO. No problem to tell when those are ripe.

This one is very ripe, I was was away for a few days, and I was waiting for it to turn yellow like its sisters actually. On closer look today by jiminy it was not going to be another yellow but was in fact already quite ripe
I love early segregation, always fun and full of surprises good and bad.
This surprise is very, very good
A rare bird a potato leaf striped GWR micro that has salad sized tomatoes and tastes very good. Hopeful to repeat in the F4, thats a bunch of recessives that should be fixed so might not be difficult to stabilize except for the flavour part, always the most challenge.
