[QUOTE=ddsack;732429]Just reporting that I had good germination on all four of the True North varieties. Most were popping up on day 6 in starting mix. All but one seed was up by day 10. (Now it's day 14.)

Midnight Sun 5/5, - first, most uniform germination
True Colors 5/5 - most variable times, 3 slower
Polaris 5/5 - 2 slower
Taiga 4/5 - 2 fast, 2 slow pokes


The first true leaves are now about 1/4 long for the older seedlings and they need to be transplanted to individual quarters, but our recent snow storm wiped out my foot path to my greenhouse where I prefer to do messy dirt work, so they'll have to be patient and wait a couple of days. :wait:[/QUOTE]

What a fabulous report! Makes me feel so good!

True Colors is growing extremely well here (with my current limited sunlight), a very healthy and vigorous PL.
Looking forward to seeing and tasting the fruits!

Karen and Marsha,

I’m really impressed with how my True Colours plant is growing. It is the tallest of all my plants. At this point, I count 15 fruit developing, and I’m sure that will increase. I can’t wait to taste this one.

That Canadian tomato sure seems to like it in Oklahoma:)
It looks fantastic and huge already :)
Looking forward to your opinion on the flavour

True Colours. 19 ounces. I’ve got three more pretty close to this size that are just starting to blush.

My True Colours is about to bloom, among the first.. The leaf pattern is really original and unique, distinctive from other PL varieties I have grown - a Summer Cider is growing next to it and it is the 'common' PL type.
Really curious now to see the flowers and fruits.

Wowzers! That is a nice tomato! As a Canadian (and a fan of your tomato breeding) I will be happy to try that one next year if you like? Pete :D

[QUOTE=KarenO;711833]Sister to Cowboy, time for a RED tomato in my projects.
This is a big dark red red red beefsteak from the delicious x captain lucky cross.

Red as a maple leaf I am calling this one
“ Oh Canada”
Big Regular leaf plants, large ribbed shiny very dark red beefsteaks, yellow epi intense traditional tangy tomato flavour.
About 75 Dtm.
I really love this one and hope it comes through again in the F4. Needs to stay amazing to keep that name.
Early days, only time will tell.
