You’re spot on and have those color genetics down Bower! Both F1 are on the right, pollen donor on the left. And after posting this picture I see a couple leaves that needed removal!

Your plants look great and the Beta/- fruit color is yummy!
(What I hate is finding pics of aphids on my fruit, three days after I took the photos! )

Excited to pick the first fruits! Both plants yielded fruit today—98 days from seed, 53 from transplant.

You know,it was posted before by me,that I was lucky enough to first offer both of your tomato parents re seeds in seed offers, so I really am looking forward to what comes out of this cross,which ones you will select to go forward with genetic stabilization, etc.

And of course which selections have the best fruit tastes as well, in your opinion.

Thanks Carolyn, those two are incredible varieties and they have yielded one heck of hybrid tomato! Plants are great and full of fruit, but tonight we did a side by side with the F1 and JF. The F1 has the bright delicious tangy tomato flavor of JF, with some added sweetness from CY. Similar texture, plenty juicy, which I prefer. I’d put the F1 right at the flavor level of JF, maybe ever so slightly just below. I’ll need to taste more fruit at various ripening points. I’ll have no shortage of fruit to taste and F2 seed. F1 are the larger, more red-orange fruit.
