Hi Darlene,

Thank you for the nice note, and I hope the beans do well for you there. This spring I will look for other native beans and chile at the seed blessing, and perhaps I'll have more to share.
San Pedro Giant is related to Lee's Sweet, which is one parent, and Caspian Pink, which is the other. The plant is a big RL indeterminate. The fruit is dark pink and very solid. I would be happy to send you some seed to try - just PM or email me.

Lee

Thank you so much, Lee. I did get San Pedro Giant in my order--was just
curious about the history behind it. Caspian Pink was the very first heirloom
I grew.

Oh, that's right. This has been a busy week! I liked Caspian Pink, but the cross turned out to be a more vigorous and productive tomato so we raise San Pedro for the farmers markets in Los Alamos and Santa Fe. You'll have to let me know how it fares there.

Lee, thanks again for the quick shipment(s) and the bonus pack.

I've really enjoyed your developed varieties over the past few years and am looking forward to trying some of your trials for 2015.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for the note. It is always good to hear the varieties we've released have done well. Our vegetables are developed to supply local farmers markets and restaurants, so they are pretty reliable.
I have a number of early and cold-tolerant varieties growing now in 4" pots. It looks like we are in for a spell of really cold weather, so those plants may get a good test. I'll let folks know the results. Happy New Year to everyone!

This was my first order from J & L Gardens. I am impressed by how fast my order got here and I appreciate the free trial packet too. I am excited about the short maturity dates for the Ambrosia line because I think I can get a good harvest before Florida's brutal heat sets in. My 2015 New Years resolution was to grow fewer varieties but once I saw your seed list I knew that was a silly idea.

As a seed vendor, I really like this vendor. I was looking for an email for them and an address. I had some seeds I wanted to send them. Thanks

jirkakuta -

Thank you for growing out the Painted Pink. I am surprised by the color as well. They have always been more dark purple and rose. Here are a couple of my photos.
It looks like you are having a good season there!

Seeing the two different colors of painted pink has me excited to be trying this for the first time in my fall garden. It will be fun to see which of the two colors mine turn out to be.

Lee, I wanted to let you know that my Ambrosia Red is still producing. All of my other tomatoes are long gone with the Florida heat but somehow even though it is struggling with the heat it is still going.

Such beautiful color combination. How is the flavor supposed to be on Painted Pink?

It must be a challenge keeping tomatoes going in the Florida heat! Do you try again in the fall? We had a few days in the upper 90's here, but now the afternoon rains are keeping things cooler. I'm picking for market this afternoon and luckily the Ambrosias and Pinks are some of the few cherries that have not been splitting with all the wet weather.
Anyway, Painted Pink should be streaked with the color and not deep blue all over, so this is a bit of a mystery.

The different colour is maybe because of cold climate. It is growing on 51 parallel, right here 50.927047, 15.067511 . I'll post here changes.

It could also be because it isn't stable yet. You could be seeing a segregate.
