I really do want to grow out the first round of the F2 but we will make the selections together
Will just have to trust me on the flavour part. There can be other F2 grow outs as well but it's more fun to do another cross I think.
There's no rush, as it is this is twice as fast as I can do it on my own. I will start the F2 in March and then send back F3 seed from our selections in the summer. Patience is a virtue in most things. Including tomato breeding. Growouts done with 20 plants in a single pot under cover so the plants themselves are not even a factor in the selection and released unstable at F5 just are not my style, Marsha's either I am quite sure.
