Will check out Tanunda b/c I really like Sweet Scarlet.

Has your garden recovered from the fungus?
it has recovered from the first round, but we have some more fog today. That makes me worry.

I am growing both Midnight Sun and OR 117, I can tell you that Midnight Sun is more pink, and has a more intense flavor, or 117 is rather mild. However midnight sun is not stable, and will not be released until Karen decides that it is stable and able to be. It's her creation, and I am doing a southern trial of this one. She may release it next fall if she feels it a stable. Wild thyme pink is an excellent production and taste pink tomato that I wouldn't hesitate to grow, it is my second year in a row growing it. This year I like it far better than Elgin pink which for some reason has a strange taste this year.
