Default Potato Leaf Pixie?

I've grown quite a few OP versions of Pixie. (Pixie, Pixie II, Orange Pixie). I thought that the Orange Pixie (original) was much improved over the red, especially in terms of sun scald issues. My favorite OP orange version thus far was from Knapp's Fresh Veggies. It was a slightly larger plant with definitely bigger fruit than the original.

But has anyone found a potato leaf version of Pixie? Especially good would be orange. It may not even exist in that gene pool, but would be an interesting find. I have a couple of orange versions started right now. One is supposed to have the larger fruit -- we'll see.

I have never seen a PL in any of my Pixie plantings.

I think it may be like looking for "hen's teeth!"

Or maybe not... I noticed that the "Delectation of Tomatoes" site lists an OP version of Pixie that says it is Potato Leaf. So I ordered some to try.
