Harry: Thanks for the grow report. The purplish skin is a surprise to me. The plant is potato-leaved?

The beautifully promiscuously pollinating tomato project is advancing delightfully. Here are photos of a flower that is the archetype for the project. The stigma is highly exposed. The anthers are not connected to each other. And it releases pollen like an allergy factory.

Joseph: Yes, "Brad" is potato-leafed. So far, the only one of your three varieties planted here that has yielded vine ripe fruit.

Nice photos by you that show promiscuous tomato blossom, illustrating very well what you seek.

Also, just FYI, unseasonably hot in Austin, but yet to reach 100-degrees. "Big Hill" is setting larger fruit very well, there is some catfacing. "Ot' Jgodka"...that was grafted to"Supernatural," is out-growing and out-producing the non-grafted "OJ"

Thanks Harry. Brad is typically the earliest tomato in my garden. Often tied with Jagodka.

Lofthouse's Big Hill, sown Jan. 1, is shown April 14, 2019. The seed for this particular plant was taken from a tomato that was harvested in Austin, Texas on June 17, 2018. Perhaps there was some unintended cross-pollenization. Of the five seeds that were sown this year, all germinated. They are outgrowing all other tomatos planted at the same time in the same medium All are more than three times the size of a regular Big Hill planted this year. Sent Joseph a few of the same seeds for his consideration. Have hopes for a good-tasting fruit. The plants are about 34-inches tall. Others are already in the ground and those in our garden have blossoms as shown here.
