I saved seed and am growing the F3. Here is picture of my kookiest fruit. I have several smaller fruit also. I am really hoping for that same great taste. This was my favorite tasting fall tomato.
Glad you found them enjoyable.
I saved seeds from a pink and a yellow version that I found to be pretty good.
I have several very healthy plants of both varieties that are ready to go in the ground. I only have room for a few in my garden but friends and family are going to be growing some as well.
I hope you get great results from your latest grow out.
Please keep us posted.

MMM Marc. I had pink last year but this one is looking to be brown? Is that possible or have I gotten an accidental cross? I have a couple of different plants that haven't started blushing yet so I will see. I put a white, yellow,orange, red, pink purple and brown to show the different colors. It's not quite ripe yet so will see

Sweet. Beautiful deep pink. I was just being a bit inpatient. Same wow factor. I love this tomato.

It's a cross between a purple and a bicolor. It's only third generation so it's not surprising that you gotsonethingdifferent. very happy that you're enjoying it. Yes you can give away seeds. I'll see how mine turn out. I may ask you for a few seeds if you wouldn't mind. How's the production so far? Are you growing in containers or garden?
