I think it is great you shared your enthusiasm for a particular variety! I think it sounds like a fantastic tomato that I would like to try! The story sounds weird to me but most tomatoes I don't even know the origin of and really find it no different from saving any other seeds really.He was given the tomato, he didn't walk in the garden and steal one. Either way we can still enjoy the tomato without supporting the vendor so Thankyou for posting!

I am currently enjoying this tomato, it's delightful . I flat out love it.
I have come to know Curtis rather well over the past 2 years. I find him to be a warm loving human being with a great deal of integrity. He found this wonderful tomato, and wanted to make it available for others, and didn't have a name for it, the man he got it from said it was an unnamed family heirloom. Curtis saved 2 seeds and was able to grow it and now we all have access to it. He had to name it something, and to his knowledge it did not have a name before, no name at all.
I really like this kind gentleman, and I think he has been unfairly prejudged here, so please give him a chance, but even more, give this wonderful, vigorous, delicious, productive tomato a chance.
As far as it being maybe Anna Russian, I am growing both currently, and it's nothing like it except being a pink heart. Especially not size and taste.
Seeds will be available in my upcoming seed offer, and so will seeds of Anna Russian.

I second everything said. I have also found Curtis to be a good guy and a very knowledgeable tomato enthusiast.

IMHO, Curtis is the best, and works harder than any 5 people I know including me.
The only reason I don’t add this tomato to my current grow list is that I’m already so far over my limit its not funny. Next year’s list is already 20+ long, lol.

I will. But I’m seriously considering moving the side fence to increase tomato growing space. I might sober up once estimates come in.
