Another one from the Prime line growout project. This one is an F4 beefsteak, has 27 fruitcurrently on it, from my own F3 saved seeds. Had great flavor, about an 8 last year. Antho, clear epi, stripes, dark flesh.

Girl Girl's Weird Thing, still absolutely in love with this one,I grow it every year.

I will try to remember to post about it. Are you still here in South Florida?

Marsha still here in Pembroke Pines at the sister in laws waiting on an operatin for the wife and probably will be until late Spring. Hanging out and fishing 5 days a week, but likely no garden for me this year. I like it here, but we're homesick bad.

Another from the Prime Line. This one is very heart-shaped has clear epi, stripes, large fruit, moderate to good productivity. This one is at F6 for seeds

Elgin pink - this one is in my garden for the fifth year in a row. Love love love the taste. Productivity is medium to good. This is a potato Leaf pink beefsteak.

Pruden's purple, another deep pink potato Leaf beefsteak with good productivity and fabulous taste, fifth year growing this one in a row

Rebel Yell, fourth year in a row growing this one because the taste is a 9.8 out of 10. I flat-out love this one. Productivity could be better however, it's on the low-to-moderate productivity side. This is another pink potato Leaf beef steak.

Sgt. Peppers- medium-to-large High antho pink hearts with very good flavor, on regular leaf vines

Polish - potato Leaf pink beef steaks could have higher productivity, but oh The Taste is fantastic. Absolutely delicious.

Rumpelstiltskin a highly productive dwarf from Blane Horton, one cut open it has a pink stripe down the center and it's very very tasty. Probably about a 9 out of 10. This one is F6

Tennessee suited - this one is from Ted Maiden, and it's my second year in a row growing it because I love the productivity and taste of this beautiful dwarf, highly recommended.

This year RY, last year it would have been Elgin Pink. EP might edge out RY for production, RY is like the gold standard for taste, but you can't go wrong with either. Luckily, I don't have to choose.

Mouthwatering pics, Marsha! Do I have to say that I'm green with envy... About 6 weeks till I can start my grow-out here, and if I have good luck, the first ripe tomato will be ready mid June... or later!

My dear Clara, how are you? Happy New Year to you, I am delighted to hear from you. The Tomato Nefertiti is dark and it's a saladette and very tasty, I'm sure you are going to want some seeds from that.

Marsha,

I'm curious about your daily average temperatures (highs/lows) during your winter tomato growing season.

Thanks!

A very Happy New Year to you as well, dear Marsha, but as I can see by your wonderful pics, you already had a great end of the last and a gorgeous beginning of the new year!

Nefertiti, yes please and you know why...
