That sounds reasonable, now I need to order some seeds and see how they do here. Maybe a few in the GH once they get here.

I think I will start a couple of seeds today just to see what happens--the gloomy weather has me very bored!

Default Scored a deal!

I found this at Home Depot today- 16qts.Sunshine Natural Organic Prof. Potting Mix--originally $6.49--on sale at $3.00- I got 2 and going back for more--it is very fluffy and moist- like gold! Feels perfect for starting all my seeds inside. Have to love a good sale!

These are my Goliath Giant Early Bush tomatoes from Seeds n Such--Five days and both seeds have broken through-- I am excited to see what they do this early.

Glad you are trying that one -- I was seriously considering growing one to see what it would do. Hard to imagine a tomato that large being so early, but we'll see.

I have also read that DTM calculations are based on plant out dates, with the suggestion that seeds should be sown 6 to 8 weeks before that date. I agree with others that 49 DTM seems unusually fast for the size of the fruit on Goliath Giant Early Bush... We heard similar stories regarding Rozovyi Myod (aka Pink Honey) when it was first introduced, which in my experience were not met. Please do report back on your experiences with GGEB since I am always looking for fast finishers to try here in Zone 3a.

Good luck, Vladimir!
Mongolskiy Karlik is a real hit, very early, short and unusual in climbing growing habit!

Do you have any experience with the Polish variety of tomato Betalux? Perhaps it should be partially partenocarpic
