Default Puck enourmous fruit per plant.

I just checked the other day and noticed that

the sturdy puck had fallen over ..

well ...all those fruit hidden in the leaves close to the stem had really bulked up

and made the supported plant fall over ....

the then visible fruit were so heavy it was quite noticeable trying to lift the

mass back up .....surprisingly heavy ...like ..."Gold "......ha ha ha

That's how Puck's fruits look like. I have the seeds from Ella (Starlight) .

Default The Mighty Puck

The hidden in the leaves attribute is still very interesting and seems to produce

nice quality fruit protected from the elements a bit more .


I will definitely have this one back in the 7 gallon containers next year

and raise it up and let it tumble over naturally .

I planted this early tom ....late planted and

it seems to have been a smashing success .......

So much fruit .....wow !

outside the leaves ,,,and hidden in the leaves ...


The tomatoes keep coming from the hidden near stem of the plant


almost like the old mini clown car act at the old circus ...

where the clowns kept coming and coming out of the little car .


The tomatoes keep coming and coming from the interior of the

Mighty Puck Tomato !


I am impressed !

Gleckler's says they keep long after ripening, too.

I am very glad I tried this one this year .

Next year .
I am thinking if I had started some seedlings Feb 21-March 1

and some Seedlings in May 1st

and some June 1st I would be very happy with the

short season early producer ....compact etc. and multi flushes etc.

Hey ....Pretty close ...

it seems to ripen the fruit from inside near the stem first

so you have to be aware .....hmmmm


this could be one you were looking for !....


Further more correction ...on size of container......


I said They had done amazing things in a 7 gallon container before ?...

CORRECTION ..........It was even more amazing cause they were actually

5 gallon round containers ....


with the reported cool tolerance and early etc......This is one that I will most definitely be

repeating next year .
