I sent seeds saved from 2016 in last year. Let me know what questions you have and I'll try to be a little more prompt in responding.

Thank you so much! I’m planning to attempt to grow it here in SE La & now knowing that it’s a family heirloom I will give it extra attention!

Do you have a rough idea of DTM?

I would put the DTM in the 85-95 day range.

Can somebody please tell me something about Swoon tomato? The "search" function here gives a lot of links to "Swoon", but it's always the verb in the sense of "rave about something".

Swoon - indeterminate, PL, pink, heart, 1 lb+, superb taste (9+, in my garden).



swoon - to faint/lose consciousness/to enter a state of hysterical rapture or ecstasy

Many thanks, Tormato, for this info! Do you know anything about its origin?

Here is what my dictionary days to "swoon":

https://dict.leo.org/englisch-deutsch/swoon

Everything you mentioned + rave about something, LOL!


PS: Of course I'll grow it this year - who could resist after this description???

I'll have to get that avatar changed, as the Chief enabler is on vacation until about October.



I had someone else post the Brody for me, as I still haven't figured out how to do it.

Its origin is from a natural cross of Granny's Heart, I believe. I have several lines that I'm working on (PL & RL, pink & red, beefsteaks and hearts, maybe one globe). Most have exceptional flavor. "Swoon" and "Bacon Lettuce and This" (a PL red beefsteak) are the first releases.

Enduro #1 - a Bill Jeffers custom cross, late midseason, semi-determinate, hot set, good leaf cover, red, very durable plant.
