Plus, potato leave plants look so beautiful and easier to tend to. And every single one I ever grew were tasty too. I do not know why there are no more PL varieties than RL.
The fact that Karen is working on PLs is a super plus for all of us. And Marsha is helping to speed it up and at the same time testing its grows and taste in Florida makes them super tomatoes. They would be able to produce early, sustain cold spells, heat, rain, dry spells, bugs, you name it. And GREAT TASTE TOO! You have my vote.

When the time comes I will make a post about it or contact folks like yourself who I think would be interested based on previous interest expressed and encouragement received along the way. I need enough seeds first. I do have the green bicolour listed on the SSE because it has been looking stable since F3. I doubt I will see much interest there however.

You have made the connection of beautiful PL and the magnificent hearts
and your varieties under development look Great ....

I look forward to your Public Release (s) .

A selection of my F5 tomatoes. It's been a good year, still some variation in shape but the plants are healthy and the flavour is just great in all of them.

I get variation in shape even in long standing varieties, probably due to my environment. It is hard to see any shape variations in your pictures (from my eyeballs).

Karen, I like a variation of colors on your countertop. Gorgeous fruits. Can be transferred onto a canvas.
