Eyegrotom,

Remember that you can search Tomatoville for variety information too. KarenO discussed this variety last year
(correction, in Oct 2017 ;-). It's Polish and the name means Peacock Tomato although the vendors who are selling it online all list it by its original name.

Pomidor Paw:

"Hello, they were pink, saladette. Very good flavour on an interesting plant with that oddly upright growth habit.
Folks in the mmmm might get some seeds, I sent it in.
KarenO"

Thank you KarenO!

I'll get the limited description from the label of Enduro #1.



The breeder, Bill Jeffers (travis) is a T'ville member, but has not posted for almost a year. You could still try a PM.

Quite modest talk for sending it in as a Nifty Fifty variety.

Yes, Bill voluntarily left Tville over a year ago,but I am still in touch with him since he has sent me several varieties, seeds of which ,have been in recent seed offers.

I am confused a bit as to what you want me to ask him about,so please just PM me about that.

Thanks,

Carolyn

well it’s rare and should be salvaged from obscurity.
Thanks for that it’s a unique little tomato!

According to the donor from a few years ago, no. Homestead 24 was described as superior, to Homestead, in hot weather.

Default Yellow Morrow Watermelon??

I received seeds for this in the MMMM & have searched all over the net to no avail for ANY info on this watermelon! The only info on the label is the name & that it weighs from 8-10 pounds. I searched for variations of the name (in case I was reading the label incorrectly) & I found bupkas, nada, nothing!!

Anyone know anything about it?

Audrey
