I have a very small project going. A little 12 cell pack growing two varieties of seedlings. I have found two cherry tomatoes that can take extreme conditions. They are growing in 4 of those cells. I let the cells dry out in 41C temperatures to a point of most of us thinking they are not going to make it. The mix was bone dry.

I watered them today, and they look wonderful tonight. I have written about these two varieties before. Porter and Japanese Pink Cherry. Their taste and usage are completely different. They have Pink in color and cherry tomato in common. One is sweet, and the other is what you want in your salsa/canning.

Punta Banta would have done well too.

So many ask what tomatoes grow well in hot temperatures. I am experimenting.
