Micros are pretty tricky. Takes a steady hand and just take your time. If I’m rushing is when I break off stigmas.
I would be delighted for you to grow something of mine Dan
Some of my hearts can get pretty big and toss off some early megablooms but not 10.8 pounds worth I’m sure.
I’ll be sure to remember you when these are ready to try if you are interested

And a gwr gs potato leaf dwarf also mini beefsteak size on a similar 20” plant. Definately to F5 for this one
Tangy and sweet fruity flavour. Quite excellent, especially in a small dwarf

The plant in the background is beautiful. How do you carry all your selections and developments to the higher "F" stages? You constantly crank out fascinating new stuff!

Thank you, I am very pleased with both the fruit and the plants themselves which remain very healthy in my hot Humid little greenhouse since March.
As always I’m trying to do something original and these really are ticking all the boxes of my goals for this project so onward to stablize, not done yet

Karen your tomatoes are just beautiful! Thanks for sharing your progress. I especially like that last GWR stripe.

Another question-do you find your micros do better/are more productive in real summer sunlight vs inside or in your greenhouse?
Thanks,
Heide

I only have one “real “micro.
These are about 20” and my goal is more if a good tomato on a small dwarf, not necessarily micro.
Certainly any tomato will do better in natural sunlight and good conditions that just can’t be matched indoors no matter what artificial light is used I think
