I'm pretty happy with EM Champion too. Small plant, big tomatoes, picked
one at 1 lb 4.7 oz today in a 4 gallon pot.

that's sort of what happened to me a couple years ago with EM Champion

in a 5 gallon pot (or smaller?)..it got "lost and forgotten " by it self ...untended

until I found it lost at the back of the dome ....Huge fruits ..lots of them

"how did it do that ?!" This year so far in my 7 gallon trials

I got lots of fruit early ...but only medium ...but some large greenies coming on

Maybe I should go back to 5 gallons for EM champion ..LOL


Hey Karen how are your Signature projects ...coming along ?

Bear, I see that your toms have those yellow shoulders too. Why is that?

Sakharnyi Pudovichok has compact indeterminate plants and great taste, and has done well outside in containers for me. The fruits have been medium, but Tatiana says they can be up to a pound: http://tatianastomatobase.com/wiki/Sakharnyi_Pudovichok My dtm is 75 days. Strangely, it didn't like the heat in my greenhouse, and produced mini-versions there.

ah ha ...never thought of that .....extra heat ...from record breaking Temps could

restrict fruit development and result in smaller expression ..(medium) than the absolute optimum ..(large) ... hmmmm
