Great projects and photoes!
Will be great to try a really prolific micro-dwarf one day

ChrisK, I have read the whole pages of this thread a couple of times. I am really keen to try this but....I have never hand pollinated a tomato plant. I have several micros and I do grow them under lights in the winter. I want to do what you are doing and try crossing. The post is wonderful but it gets a bit technical for me.. can you suggest some simple reading that I might get that will show me where to start.

I do by the way have a micro of my own, by complete chance I might add, it was a mutant branch on a tomato from a few years ago, I did put it in the forum when it happened .I have kept the seeds true and am growing it as we speak. It was a Tommy Toe that had 1 odd branch , the rest of the plant was normal but this one branch was different, I let it grow and eventually it produced fruit, the following year I grew seeds from that fruit and also from the regular part of the plant, the small branch seeds produced a very tiny plant , the usual seeds a normal Tommy Toe. It has remained true to size.

Anyway, I am very keen to try all of this but need a foot start..is there a book or something that would get me going.

Hope you have the time to answer

XX Jeannine

Has anybody grown this out for seeds? Please let me know. Thanks.

A link below to those here at Tville who have grown Kozula #14.

Asking here in Crosstalk is really not the best place to ask IMO.

Perhaps best to ask for seeds in the WANTED seed subforum,or directly PM those in this link to see if they have seeds to share.

I only grew 1 of the full size plants and never really gave it a fare chance. It never left a 4 inch pot. The 2 tomatoes from the 1 full size plant i grew are in the pic above post 296. It only made two and i tossed it. Now the 2 micro plants are setting fruit like little champions but none have ripened yet. These plants are not showing any of the leaf roll like some of the pics above in this thread. Here is a pic of the 2 micros.
What size pots are those 2 plants in?

Thanks! My light setup I'll need to measure clearance...I bought a few 6.5" azalea pots which are a little shorter (4 to 5" I think), they should give me an extra inch clearance....

Correct, I just tried it myself.

The best thing for you to do is go to the WANTED seed subforum and ask if anyone has seeds they can share with you since there were several Tvillians on that link originally who had grown it..

Mark, check out this link which I found by Googling, as to 2015 updates from Tville as to who was growing it.

Google is your friend.

OK, what ever became of this very promising HM X CC cross? Supposed to be ready in 2017? Apricot flavored? How could this thread possibly just go dark?

Super sweet with a nice acid finish at the end. If you ask me its way better than sungold and one of the best tomatoes i have ever tasted. Super unique flavor.
This topic pops into my head often.
Did the experiment end? Did the apricot taste show up in the next generation?

Default HMxCC F8

I've been growing these for 2 yrs non stop.
I started at F5 and have been "landracing"
them ever since, my gene pool is at F8.

Most plants this small produce weird tasting
fruit, or at least the ones I've tried. HMxCC
is significantly better, I'll go as far as "nice" flavor,
even without the micro qualifier.

On the apricot front, it does have a slight
tart component, although not too pronounced to my taste buds.



This one is from earlier today
Better camera is in order.

This is from last year.

Thank you!
The comment that it tasted better then Sungold and the apricot comparison made me think we were missing out on something very unique.
You describe them as 'nice'. Makes me want to accept I am growing the 'normal' micros ;-)
