They are all different. The idea is small dwarf plants with big plant flavour

Here's my remaining Sweet Baby Jade after a hornworm visit last night. My other SBJ succumbed to some unknown cause earlier in August, but this one is still cranking out the fruit and the growth. It's about 4 ft tall now.

I want to try your Polaris, Taiga and Midnight Sun plants for 2023. Will they be available? I have checked with a number of web sites that sell your seeds and they are out of them. Thanks for any help.

I purchased Midnight Sun from Renaissance last winter.

Alas, I started two, gave one to our daughter and ours was broken off in a thunderstorm. It didn't recover quickly enough to yield any ripe tomatoes.

My daughter reports she liked it very much. I will try again next year.

Always a good idea to start a few to hedge your bets. Can bc always save more seeds once you get a plant although Fred said he estimates there would be for or five seeds from his 200’ row
Seeds are not a major feature of midnight sun
I’m glad your daughter liked it and that you plan to grow it again

Some accidental volunteers I potted up in October and put in the little greenhouse with a heater and now some light since it’s Canadian november dark

I figured they was Ted to grow. This is an F2 growout of a 3-way little dwarf cross I did last year. There are lots of possibilities as far as size, shape and colour. I’m looking for an interesting very small dwarf.

A couple examples of fruit from the summer growout of this Same F2
A sweet green grape on a 12” potato leaf microdwarf
And a beautiful black cherry on a 12” regular leaf microdwarf.

Looking forward to more interesting discoveries from this cross. Using my own now stable small dwarfs as parents opens up a lot of possibilities in finding micros I actually really like including finally some great flavour and interesting colours and shapes.
There are some stripes as well.
More to come and from my teacup tomatoes
