„post #26 in this thread
Most people can't see any segregation and grow it and save seed as they do with any OP variety.“
This is hearsay, has no probative value. We call it "one woman said".

Kumato is undoubtedly hybrid. Only a fool would spend the money to develop something that then turns out to be an OP and what can not practically protect. Neither patent maintenance fees are certainly small. I do not consider Syngenta's leadership as fools, and because the Kumato project is very successful.
„I don't believe it is an OP. I saw lots of segregation of traits when I grew saved seed. And my experience was that under my normal field conditions, they were pretty much the worst tomatoes in the field. Fred Hempel.“
Based on my own experience, I fully agree with Fred H. Photographs of Kumato F2 and F3 from 2015 - grown immediately next to each other.
I have never seen Negro de Olmeda, probably in the shape of my F3.
