Default Orange Slice

A local friend gave me some Orange Slice Hybrid seeds last year to grow. I planted a few, they grew nice, tasted good and are a good looking tomato. I planted 6 F1 and 6 F2's, all germinated. I was surprised to see 2 of the F2's are potato leafed, it's going to be interesting seeing what the F2's look and taste like.

I've grown these for three straight yrs. In my clay soil they make lots of 10-16oz solid fruit. Very meaty with medium taste.

PCMG, do you intend to de-hybridize them?

I have F2 and F3 seeds I sent to a few people recently, but I haven't started any this year... too many other varieties I'm growing. I'd be happy to send you some seeds though.

Reports back from this year so far are mostly RL with a few PL plants showing up. It's just a guess but I think one of the F1 parents is KBX. If I was to dehybridize them I don't know what route I would go, RL,PL or grow for size and/or taste.
