They seem to be germinating very well. I hope you have typical germination. I can't wait for you to try them because I absolutely absolutely love them.

I got 100% germination of KARMA pink, and the seedlings are the sturdiest-looking of the 12 varieties I sowed on March 1st.

Here's recent pictures of my plants. The tomatoes have grown quite a bit larger and the first picture sharing an EB with a mature plant is setting fruit on the 2nd cluster. The first cluster (picture up thread) had all flowers set fruit - 7 total.

You can see the tomatoes easier on the 2nd picture. These plants were transplanted later than the first one.

I think the growth is amazing; night time temps are in the 50s; I think 48 was the low earlier in the week.

They look very strong and healthy Barb! They are still just big babies and should get quite large for you full grown. They don't seem to mind cooler temps

Wow Barb, you are doing an outstanding job. They are growing like lightening! I'm getting such a kick out of this.
SJamesNorway- thank you for the germination report, this is delighting me. I bet they are getting near to first transplant.

Have any others sown the seed yet? How was all of your germination? Please let us know how our babies are doing in other parts of thecountry/world.

Yea Barb they look amazing!

Here is Karma Pink two weeks from germination and just potted up from the cell pack. Lovely round PL, sturdy and vigorous seedling.

Folks the offer is still open, I have more seeds, and more on the way to Karen for the Canada crowd. I will send to anyone anywhere.

Mine are about the size of Bowers also, they're going in the ground this weekend. We hit 88 degrees today, so I think we're plenty warm. We've had some cold nights, but I think we're full steam ahead on plant out. I'll try and snap some pics this weekend for an update.

I started 3 seeds of Karma Pink on March 12 on dampened cotton pad and all of them germinated.
