Innovative tomato breeder Kanti Rawal stopped by the farm today. Here is an excerpt from the book "Ripe" which is where I first learned about him.

He is a gem of a man. I am trialing a bunch of his lines, and two of them are no less than spectacular.

I mention this here, because we had a discussion about short (or no) stake tomatoes. Good times.

The Golden Honeybunch F1 variety mentioned looks as if it's difficult to procure seeds...... Was that one of the "spectacular" ones? Looks as if it's really early!

He has worked on early. I think that one is available here.

The ones I am trialing are OP breeding lines. Not released. Things he had been working on when he retired.

Thanks. I checked that site. It's Canadian even! However, they are out of stock
