Fred, do you still have seeds left? I just checked in to tv for the first time recently! I love green tomatoes!

I just saw the SFChronicle article; it inspired me to order through the Artisan site.
I can’t wait to taste this thing.
Kudos Fred.

That article has had a very positive effect for us. Green Bee is so weird. Having Chef's describe what they do with it really helps.

Two little Green Bee seedlings have just emerged here. Hooray and thank you Fred. Love the article as well. Very special that you renamed your farm after this one!

Thank you tomato breeding rockstar Fred Hempel, it's awesome that you are approachable on a place like Tville (thank you too, Mischka), generously sharing your knowledge and the fruits of your labor with ordinary people like me!

Good luck to everyone who got seeds. Please post any interesting results here, or at the Green Bee group on Facebook.

Green Bee was the first up for me, followed closely by Fuego Verde and Fuego Rosa. I started about 38 varieties

I have seeds for Fuego Verde. Am I covered, or do I need Green Bee as well?

Green Bee is unique. Fuego Verde is much more similar to Green Tiger than Green Bee.
