Default Shotgun Approach (BIG x DamMik)

This is definitely the genetic "shotgun" approach to tomato breeding. The cross is [((Beauty King x Indigo Rose) x GWR Wildthyme)F1 x (Damascus Steel x Mikado White (PL White?))F1]

Here's some F1's from last year -



And this year's F2's -


L3-15


T2-1, T 2-4, T 2-2, T 2-3. T2-1 BC, weak but pleasant. No save on 2-2, T2-3 taste 6/10, T2-4 Taste 7/10.


FY 5-3 red flesh, taste 7.5/10


FY 5-8


FY 5-6, FY 5-7


FY 4-5



L 3-8, L 23-6, L 3-1, L 3-1
L 3-1 taste 6/10, L 3-8 BC, "yellow" taste, 8/10; L 3-11 yell w/tangy, good for sauce.
L 23-6 Orange/pink BC w/SUPER beautiful antho, taste 7.5/10, early.


FY 4-15, (Lithium x Indigo Rose FY 4-1), FY 4-17, FY 4-9, FY 4-7, FY 4-5
FY 4-15 bicolor, 7/10, good acid/fruity flavor. FY 4-5 and 4-9 were "no saves",
FY 4-7 was the taste winner of the group -9/10, bicolor.


FY 4-1 - great taste. 8.5/10


FY 4-2 - GREAT flavor, bicolor, I'm definitely going to do a few seg's.


FY 4-12, FY 4-6
FY 4-6 -.citrus-y; no save on 4-12


FY 4-8.5, FY 4-8
FY 4-8 was PRODUCTIVE, and bicolor. BC, fruity, could be stronger.
4-8.5 taste 8/10 - I'll grow out a few.


FY 4-16, FY 4-13, FY 4-17, FY 4-15, FY 4-11
FY 4-11 taste 7/10. No save on 4-13 or 4-16. 4-17 was big, yellow, productive, and good flavored.

The F3's were easily some of the best looking fruit to come out of my garden last
summer. I think there's still a lot of potential here.




BDM FY 1-1 EPIC LOOKS, 8/10**




BDM FY 1-7(2) Pretty, 8.5/10, wish I had more, doing a few for sure.


BDM FY 3-7 BLACK antho, orange interior, taste 8.5/10, good stuff, chewy skin.


BDM L 26-2 Dark antho BC 8/10




BDM T 18-5E "Jack o Lantern" BEAUTIFUL, taste 8/10

Wow.. that's some insanely beautiful genetic action going on in those. Just awesome. That cut pic of the yellow-orange one with the black antho skin is just mesmerizing.

Gorgeous!! And so diverse. I am also a big fan of the shotgun approach. Up in Canada we call it the 'hose and sprinkler' approach.
