Yeah, the Hatch Festival is going up here, too. Gotta get me some.

That sauce looks really good.

I imagine it smells divine and succulent at the same time.

You're gonna dig this Elgin Pink cross with Anna Maria's Heart (putative), big, productive, healthy plant. Giving it a day or two before I attack. . I haven'tweighed it but it feels like 400 grams or thereabouts.
That EP X AMH cross looks great,and how could it be bad with those parents? Did you do the cross? What F gen is it?

I agree, Marsha, EP is one of the best tasting pinks. Never grew Anna Maria's Heart. I assume it is different than Anna Russian Heart.

Go get some supplies and make some, it'll boost something.

Not intentional. I saved Elgin Pink seeds from 2 tomatoes. I grew them out and some kept coming up RL. The PLs grew true to type. At first I discarded the RLs then as I observed it was consistent, I grew out 8 plants.

Those F1s are RL and produce the tomato pictured, the shape of the tomato (during initial growth stages) and the census data point to Anna Maria's H, no other hearts were growing at the time and it was adjacent to the Elgin P. I'll be saving the F2s. Taste test forthcoming. If it's what I anticipate, I'll be growing out a lot of tomatoes from this cross, as you say, with such a lineage they can't be bad.

The F1 is stronger on the leaf diseases spectrum relative to AMH.

Default and another box

I keep finding them hiding under leaves.

There's a long legged lady in there too.

Gerardo, what a great marriage!) Your Russian Bride is really virgin and beautiful Nevesta F1 means "Bride" in English. How was its taste for you?

Andrey
It was awesome. A favorite amongst all who sampled it. There's 2 plants still going strong.

S. Yabloko and Tyasheloves are making everyone happy at my house. Fat Jack is producing BIG FAT ONES, I can't wait to taste them.

Tuzemets has also shined.

THANK YOU!

There's many more I have try and am excited about tasting them.

My pleasure.
Probably Nevesta F1 cukes is a good candidate for dehybridization)

Great to hear Siberian tomato varieties like your hot weather as well)

At first glance no doubt they are frightening, I've been handling them so much I've lost fear and respect for them. Glove wearing is out the window, I do however, use goggles when cooking with them, as one decided to spray me as it was being cooked and it wasn't too much fun.

These superhots are definitely hot, nonetheless, to my fire forged buds they seem manageable.

I hope your electric blender cup is made of glass and not plastic. Or, you only use it for the hot stuff.
Beautiful display.

The old plastic one is now a dedicated "sauce" container. They're dirt cheap down here. Glass is nice, pricier and a lot less disposable.

Two very different hearts IMO.

I was sent the seeds for Anna Maria's heart by

http://t.tatianastomatobase.com:88/w...aria%27s_Heart

which is pink and Anna Russian is also pink

http://t.tatianastomatobase.com:88/wiki/Anna_Russian

The above one is also in my tomato book.

But I find the two have very different tastes and Anna Russian also has that wispy droopy foliage,so it looks awful at first,but when it grows up it starts behaving like a good girl should. All to say I prefer Anna Russian over Anna Maria.

I've also grown Elgin Pink and another Elgin one ,can't remember the name right now.
