Paddy, the color, shape, core size are all very different, but that striping pattern persists. The Red Lithium has only the red flesh, only slightly ribbed fruit, very small core, firm fruit with good shelf life, amazing production, like 40 fruit on one plant. It seems to be stable. Does seem like a cross for the better happened.
My seeds were from Crazyabouttomatoes, she got hers from you.

Default Update!

My Lithium Sunset tomatoes are blushing yellow. There are some huge tomatoes, among the largest of all my varieties. Plant is very healthy showing no signs of disease. Grown in earthbox (thanks again Marsha for all of your advice)!

I will report back on taste which I am really looking forward to!

I’m growing lithium sunset this year, and pretty sure I got my seeds from Marsha after she listed it as a “must grow” on her tomato list. I’ll have to find the original seed packet.

One of them was blushing yellow.

Here are three of my lithium sunsets. The plant is really loaded with tomatoes. These are not overly soft. I believe my seeds came from MMMM.

They are beauties. My plants were really loaded too. Please can we see a photo when you cut it? Want to see whether it is red flesh or bicolor. Red flesh is being called Red Lithium.

Marsha, here is a shot of the interior of all my Lithium Sunsets. I also included a pic of the packet I grew the seed from. I think it is from MMMM, but maybe its from you?.Maybe someone will recognize the package?

No, yours is the original LS, the bicolor one. Not from me. Looks very nice though.

I recognise the package. These seeds are from me. Obviously, my LS fruits look identical to yours.

Those are identical to mine as well. Beautiful and really good flavor as well as highly productive. But I won't grow it again, mine turned too soft after only a day. I'd be interested in growing Red Lithium.

I am going to try to get it again. I only have 11seeds hope at least 1 or 2 germinate.
