When I see dark green tomato getting pale on the blossom end , I can tell that it has reached mature stage in size. Give it another 10 days or so to see some ripe color break.
Any day now, Marsha .

Oh Karen, we have color break on one. Gardeneer was right. Too soon to tell if it will be orangy or pink, or red.
I just about can't stand it!!!

Congrats , Marsha.
What did I say in pot #91 ? Was it just a wild guess or what ?

It's amazing to me about just how exact 2 F1s will act. Heres the other plant with fruit showing some color.

Default Surprise! And this one's a whopper!

Well well, looky here! These are the fruits of the 2 different plants, the one on the left is plant 2, right is plant one. Remember everyone, this is an F1 and no chance of a seed mixup because I did these a month later than all my other seeds. Fruit is very early maturing. Haven't tasted yet.
Ambrosia Gold instability strikes again!
What do you think Karen, seeds from both saved separately?
This could actually be even more fun.

They are gorgeous. so pleased!! The one on the right will get darker pink I think. We can save seed from both the. Choose the best overall, taste, colour vigour etc. F2 will be really fun. I am hoping for 3 different pl sisters. Excited for you to see how they taste

Also, I like go be right and I was Somehow so sure they would not be gold

They might have been gold if AG was stable. This way is more exciting. Tasting tomorrow I think. I am also going to try to see epi color or colorless on the pink/red one, because AG throws red offspring.

Now I am really excited that I grew 2, and that you want seeds from both.

There are several of the purple one ripening, and just one more of the pink.
I put a known pink next to it to compare the color, and snap the photo and it definitely is pink. I tasted (gobbled)the first purple one. Lovely balanced flavor, very complex, leaning a bit toward sweet, texture firm but not crunchy. Thin skin. They crack in the rain, which until today was nonstop. Did I mention it tasted great? Heeee!
When the second pink ripens, I will start seed saving for both colors.
