I made a mistake when I put up the seed offer, and I actually grew out f-4s, so seeds that I gave out we're actually F5. The seeds this time around will be F6 but I swear I think it's completely stable.

Nothing to forgive, Marsha. I posted about a multiflora tomato plant that really cranks, and you provided a rather impressive alternative. I consider it less of a hijack and more of an aside

That's a lot of blooms,I had a couple sweet 100 plants one year that had so many tomatoes on it we could not eat them fast enough.So I made some tomato sauce from them.Because of all the skins it was bitter and needed sugar but I used most of them.The thing with the sweet 100's is they crack when ripe(mine did everytime I grew them) and some people will think there not good to eat.That's what I heard from a few people I offered them too.But my kids loved them when they were growing up.

Just a couple new pics. This thing just keeps putting out more and more suckers, each covered with flowers. It's gotten so heavy, I'm having to triple the water going to the plant - Some of the leaves are starting to get wilty during the day if I don't.. even though the trunk is roughly an inch thick now!





FYI - These are two different clusters.. just 2 of about 7 clusters like this already on the plant. I've had to start removing suckers/branches.

Funny. I was just looking again at these pictures, and I see what appears to be a double/fused fruit near the center/bottom of picture 2. So many flowers, I couldn't even see it from my normal standing view.
