gssgarden - The oblate ones in the first picture are visually striking to me.

Ok..here's my update.
The regular leaf plant is just not producing. Had the one, but it had a split I didn't see and she rotted. MAYBE another fruit or two before years end.

The Potato leaf one has produced a few fruit of a few ounces. Beautiful color.
I let the first one get REALLY ripe. To ripe as it started to grow something inside. Didn't taste it.
The second was fine. The taste was outstanding!! Full bodied! A real winner in my book.
EXTREMELY meaty as the pics show. I only got a few seeds from her but will get more next tomato.
Really looking to see what next year brings!
This is one great tasting tomato!!

Wow! And they look picture perfect! They look better than the original F1 Orange Slice.

Grady, the 2 that I had so far really were picture perfect. Lol
I really hope they grow the same next year. I'm shooting for the same exact tomato.
This one had a lot of frost damage so it got off to a very bad start.
The next one I'll cut in half for pics, squeeze the seeds, and DEFINETLY eat the rest! Lol

Will keep you updated.

Some of mine are a bit mealy due to the monsoon but still a very solid fruit and wonderful to look at. I have 9 plants and they rival Big Beef for productivity and are larger also. I buy seed from Burpee.

Planted my F4 Orange slice seeds yesterday. HOPE to get those blocky fruits from last year. I will only grow the potato leaf ones.
It was an exceptional tomato. I’ll know in a week!

Fingers crossed!!

Nyrfan, from what I read Moonglow is regular leaf. Mine was definitely potato leaf. One site had as it at 6-8 oz as well. Mine were not close to that.
Most pics from google look very different as well. Some are oblate, round, much more gel etc.

Who know what I’ll get but I will grow potato leaf only. Prob 4 plants or so.

Interesting what you will come up with. I'm leaning towards Japanese tomatoes again this year.
Mandarin is an OP that looks similar to the round tomato. PM if you want some seed to compare, these are RL...if you end up with some PL seeds from this year, I'd be interested in growing a few out.

I planted about 20 seeds or so. My best looking ones. Another 10 from the same plant, different fruit that I’m not sure about because I let them dry out in their cup. Lol

I’ll let you know and I can ship you some seedlings if they turn out to be PL.

Don't need seedlings, just seeds

Day 4 after planting and a couple are starting to break ground! In a few days I should have my germination rate.

How was yours Grady?
