Default Tonopah Tomato

I just received my shipment from Seeds N Such. Tonopah hybrid tomato was a gift https://www.seedsnsuch.com/product/t...id-tomato-vff/
I'm wondering if any of you all have grown this variety and what to expect?

I'm also thinking that Seeds N Such may be sending others this variety, so I started a thread about it.

Well, Robert, Tonopah is very close to Area 51. Maybe it will be a lure for aliens.

When I first joined Tomatoville, I couldn't stand the thought of hybrids. I didn't realize that all plants started off as hybrids, but they did. Some did millions of years ago. They grew and adapted themselves without our help to become OP. To me, "Heirloom" is a man-made way of looking at things.

Just something to think about.

Planted my 5 or 6 free seeds, they are so small I lost at least one, Got 5 good plants and transplanted them sometime in mid June, about the time the heat turned up to 95 to 100 degrees plus every day for about 2 months. They all thrived in the heat, bloomed in August and produced in September and October. One was planted in a good spot and yielded many 8 to 10 oz tomatoes. The others were in a semi shady area and didn't do as well, but the 2 in the second best area produced several very good ones. The best thing about these is that they are very meaty inside (reminds me of Prudens Purple that way). They are also quite decent tasting for hybrids. I have an extra packet of free seed and will order more for 2000.
