I hear so much about this tomato and have seen pictures, but what is the inside like?
color, gel, amount of seeds? Also what is the skin like? thick or thin?

This thread from last year gives the history and lots of pics...
For a large tomato the skin is not noticeably thick or thin.

I have grown this tomato every year since getting seed from marsha a couple of years ago. It is a great tomato. I love the taste and it is gorgeous looking on our table. As a matter of fact i picked one today that is about 12 ounces and beautiful. We are having it for dinner with burgers. Yummy. Marsha is a saint. Thanks marsha.
We raise plants and give them to friends and family. They all ask for ggwt plants over the others we raise. Plant is disease tollerent in my nc garden.

A saint? Hahaha, not hardly! In fact there is another Floridian posting lately that's making my horns and spade tail need pushing back in.
I am just delighted that you are so pleased really makes me feel good. Wait till you see what I will have to offer in January.

I do hope you will offer seeds for GGWT in Jan as the ground squirrels loved her too much.

Just started the seeds, 3 if each from 2 plants, selected by Mark. Unfortunately, no germination after 10 days. I started some more of each in paper towel and ziplock baggies. Hoping for at least 1 plant of each.

I know just what you mean. Actually I am rather appalled and my feathers are a bit ruffled too.

Yes, I think we all need to report those posts. Just the tone of disrespect alone!

My grandmother used to say to treat others with more kindness and respect than you expect to get for yourself for good results. Me? I think an iron skillet can be used for positive re-enforcement behavioral changes with great effectiveness, LOL!

At least after they wake up again.

I think the poster in question missed the lesson in manners and proper discussion etiquette.
