Default Two new KARMA’s and Tundra

Hello,
Limited seed will be available for trial of my large purple potato leaf heart ‘Tundra’ as well as the last two KARMA cherries, the oval bicolour potato leaf cherry KARMA Apricot as well as the Bicolour Green and Pink potato leaf cherry we call KARMA Miracle.
Pm me for an email address to send your request. Sase within the US, other arrangements available for outside US as with our previous releases.
The others have been very well received and I thank everyone who has posted photos and informative reports of how the other True North and KARMA tomatoes have done in various conditions in numerous countries.
8 new tomatoes released last year and now these makes a total of eleven so far, very proud of all of them and I hope you will enjoy these new ones just as much
KarenO

Beautiful tomatoes Karen, definitely distinctive and with the names there should be no mix ups from lost tags etc

Karen, you have so much to show for just a few years! I can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve.

Thanks Karen for all your work on the Karma and the True North series! But I'm curious -- did all the Karma varieties come from one cross? Or were there different parents?

One cross with what was one unstable parent.
But that turned into an advantage in this case I believe.

Beautiful tomatoes, that take hard work and patience. The reward is so great and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The Tundra looks luscious.

I just heard from my friend in NC. She is growing two KARMA Miracles that I sprouted for her back in February, and is about to plant them in her garden. She said they are PL and that the foliage doesn't have the usual aroma. Has anyone else noticed that?

I'm growing KARMA's Miracle and Peach this season, but they haven't sprouted quite yet so I cannot comment...…

I’m not sure Linda, it’s not something that I have noticed myself. Perhaps aroma, like flavour is an individual experience. I’m not sure.
I’m happy that she is growing them and I hope you’ll let me know how they do
