Nice group !
List

What were some of the dwarfs (examples) that you had bad luck with the mites in your setting?

Just wondering...

In 10G Smart Pots:

I've had bad luck with Dwarf plants dying off quickly and being loaded with disease or vulnerable to russet mite attack, while the other plants survive. So this year I am relegating them to Smart Pots.

One heck of a list!

I see you have multiple brandywines and I keep seeing posts where people compare and declare one better than the others. Do you find distinct differences between them? You must, since you grow several every year. I have seeds for a few different ones, but have never grown any.

Andre, thanks for the corrections; I’ll try to fix them on my spreadsheet. I mostly grow the various brandywines because I’m still comparing them, and they are all good anyway. Can’t have enough brandywines.
I grow for market, well, market finances my tomato obsession. What I don’t sell or can gets dehydrated, which still sell pretty well in the off season.

New Big Dwarf
Tastywine
Cherokee Tiger
Rosella Purple
Dwarf Sweet Sue
Tasmanian Chocolate
Rainbow Dwarf
Red Viper Dwarf


None of these survived to fruiting last year. I discovered last year the mite is a problem with all tomato plants here in the Bay Area, so this year I am prepared. But the dwarf plants seem to be hit harder, faster and struggle more with it, while the standard plants survive to produce fruit. Uluru Ochre, Dwarf Purple Heart, Lime Green Salad and Hahms Gelbe made it and fruited, as did Dw Arctic Rose after being overwintered.

I have had this experience with all dwarf plants the last three years.

This year I am growing all in containers (EBs or grow bags) with new soil. Nothing produced in ground at the community garden in 2017 - it was all completely wiped out. I was going to solarize but I think it would be better to sterilize the containers and start over.

OK. Here's my list. There's no room for more, so if I change it, I'll have to drop something. The outdoor varieties all have reported DTMs of 65 or less (except for Sakharnyi Pudovichok, which is a great producer anyway).

Greenhouse Tall (7):
Cherokee Green
George Detsikas Italian Red
2 x Girl Girl’s Weird Thing
Not Purple Strawberry
2 x Rosado de Ayerbe

Greenhouse short (7):
Black Krim
Bulgarian Triumph
Indian Stripe PL
KARMA Pink
Maglia Rosa or Lucky Tiger ?
Orange Jazz
Pale Perfect Purple

Outdoors (13)
Batyanya
Belyi Naliv
EM-Champion
Gregori’s Altai
Jaune Flamme
Lyana
Pearly Pink Orange
(Ron’s) Carbon Copy
2 x Sakharnyi Pudovichok
Tarasenko Rozovyi
Yamal
Zolotoe Serdtse

Hi Steve,

Great list. Do you have a tall greenhouse and a short greenhouse? Can I ask the height of them? Thanks!

I notice Dwarf Arctic Rose was resilient for you in this circumstance ...

It is for me as well .....another member of the Dwarf project Grumpy line that also does well for me is Yukon Quest .....

I also tried growing a Parent of the above 2 ..Budai Torpe and was extremely pleased .

Everyone is making me want to start a list too, even though I need to do a serious cleaning of my indoor grow area which has yucky spotted overwintered peppers now.

So instead I made a category list until I can lay things out:

Beefsteak (includes hybrids and crosses)
Slicer
Early
Cherry
Basket (for garden clubs)
Paste
Orange
GWR
Dwarf (for garden clubs)
Micros already started but remaining tiny!

Getting great ideas from above in the meantime.

Pete,

My first time too. I think Bower and possibly oakley have threads with windowsill photos on this from last year.

My micros are going very slowly. I used some old coir pellets and potted them up with the coir on the bottom with a new small bag of Burpee Organic until its time to break out the huge bags.

I would start them in a better quality mix next time and not change anything except fertilize as needed when they go outside. I was actually hoping to eat them before it was time to move outside but my timing failed.
