Default Waltingers Fleisch aus Idien

In my final tomato slot for 2018 I've decided to grow Waltingers Fleisch aus Idien. It was recommended to me from Gardenboy and I got seeds from him last winter.

Besides the reports of very good, rich and earthy flavor (from him) as well as a good write up at Tatiana's:
http://tatianastomatobase.com/wiki/W...sch_aus_Indien

There is almost nothing in any TVille threads about it, so I thought it must not be a very widely grown tomato. So I'll post a few things about it as the growing season progresses, a little less than 2 months for me from tomato sowing. Those that have grown it, feel free to add your thoughts on this tomato.

I had planned to grow this one in 2017 from seeds I bought from Heritage, but ran out of room under my grow lights. This year I'm growing a bunch of small saladettes of various colors, and Waltingers is one of them. We'll have to compare notes in a couple of months!

It appears that Indische Fleisch, which also comes up in Carolyn's Google search, is a different variety...

No, I haven't grown this variety and don't intend to and yes, Indische Fleish is a different variety.

I grew it couple of years ago. It had early yield, very tasty, exactly that earthy description so many love. It succumbed to something early/ as many that year/ so am not sure on total yield I would have had.

Here is plant. It is very thick stemmed. Foliage cover is quite good and the leaf shape is hard to describe, but subtly different. A healthy vigorous plant.

This one is on my 'strongly want to grow' list. I will be looking for the reports. Thanks!

Mine looks similar to jmsieglaff's (which is gorgeous!), but is a week or two younger. Seeds germinated in 4 days on a heat mat; planted out 5/21, buds appeared by 5/28. I'm comparing this variety with two other dark saladettes this year (Nefertiti and Kodiak Brown).

I grew it last year and was happy with it. The fruit on my plant ranged in sizes. The fruit are very dark which was nice. I had it planted beside a black cherry tomato plant (large cherry toms) and the size ranged from that to about double that size. I recall the taste was pretty good too. If I hadn't bee forced to move September 1st I would have more feedback as I usually get at least another month and possibly two out of my tomatoes here on the island. Worth trying. The results are different depending on where you live, how you grow it, what your soil is like, etc so don't take anything I said as gospel, lol.

I’m very impressed with the plant. Vigorous, good leaf cover, healthy. Good fruit set. Picked the first fruit the other day, hope the flavor is there! About golf ball sized.
