I'm wondering if there are expectations of noticeable differences between the various MSE plant numbers. I've got #12 and #8 growing but only now setting fruit (I put them in the ground in mid June). All the MSE plants look the same to me (really good!).

Yes, you will find subtle differences, but not much, you may find some taste variation. Anything selected for seed stock was chosen from very early producing plants that had a good taste, I like something more than just sweet. I think B. has the most taste variation, and A. plant 8 had the best taste overall for me this year, 13 is great too. I usually grow many plants, so I see more variation in strains than people do that only grow a few plants.
Glad they are working out for most of you guys, we sure like it up here in AK.

Mine is a vigorous plant (this is with some pruning). Very healthy, setting a lot of fruit. This got a later start by a week or two (need to check notes) so DTM from seed should still be rather good I think!

wow. nice fruit set and big, dark green leaves. What is your altitude Ricky and does it provide any challenges to growing tomatoes?

5400ft altitude and all in all pretty easy gardening here, more so since putting the toms in pots. Early Blight and hornworms have disappeared, but temps become more of a factor in the bags. I could write a book on the nuances and it's a narrower window, but you get the bags right and it's the jackpot.

Nice. I'm kinda of astonished that you get early blight in the rockies w/ the low humidity. The times I have been in the rockies, seemed like there were a bunch of chipmonks. Never recall getting bugged too much.

always think of mork & mindy, and john "Denver." hadn't been in a while, may need to add puff the magic dragon.....

always a superb job, such a nice clean operation.
