I got Spanish tomato Chocmande from Baikal until recently I didn´t know that it is multiflora.

Chocmande is a black hybrid.

Ilex, I had already started to get the pages from Tania's website of the ones I knew of and then maf reminded me of a couple more/

http://t.tatianastomatobase.com:88/wiki/Zluta_Kytice

http://t.tatianastomatobase.com:88/wiki/Riesentraube

We have the one above with a german name but it was widely grown in Europe and in Hungary was known as Goat's T$T for the small nipples at the blossom end.

http://t.tatianastomatobase.com:88/w...rtz_Multiflora

http://t.tatianastomatobase.com:88/wiki/Ildi

For Ildi some have tried to find where it came from. Thompson and Morgan in England was the first to offer it but they didn't know for sure either.

http://t.tatianastomatobase.com:88/wiki/Mirabelle

Of the above I've grown all but Mirabelle/

And hopefully others will think of more/

And a general Google search which I think has evenmore, perhaps even the several threadslisted under Tomatoville, and some from Solana Seeds.

https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q...flora+tomatoes

Which multifloras do you have in Spain?

Are you saying that b/c Chocmande is a hybrid that it isn't or can't be a multiflora?

Ilex, what is the name of the one that the man in thepicture is holding. I didn't know there were any multiflora varieties that had such large fruits/

Had not come across the Multifora before so just read up on it with interest. Thought I would bump this topic and inquire how the grow out was going.

Ilex,
you're right. I found it on Google. Perhaps some confusion seeds, I do not know what it could be. I have sown no multiflora.

The one in the photo is 100 en pom (aka 100 en rama), probably 100 en pom de la Ribera. It's a "de colgar" tomato. I know one or two more similar de colgar ones. In fact, it's a wonderful trait for those tomatoes.

Wow, those are beautiful clusters of fruit.

I have some concern about the multiflora trait in my environment. The trouble is that every dropped blossom is a mold bomb when it's cold and wet.. or even warm and wet. Well some varieties really aren't susceptible and they don't make 'mold bombs', so for sure I would have to combine those traits to grow a multiflora successfully here.

Kapuler's Peacevine is one of the first OP's I grew here, great tomato but dropped many blossoms (not multiflora either but prolific) in the cold wet year we had, and they fell upon leaves and stems and it was a horrible mold fest.... My daily protocols for high risk weather are out of that experience, I do pick off any spent blossom I see and dispose it to prevent catastrophes.

Yet some varieties don't seem to attract botrytis grey mold at all, and just drop their harmless petals..... If not, multiflora would be very high maintenance for me.

No, I'm just saying that the one in the photo doesn't look like chocmande and as it's a hybrid, the seeds he got are probably something else, or seeds from that hybrid. I don't know if Chocmande is multiflora or not, obviously, it could be.

Chocmande looks like a Kumato x Marmande cross. It's a fairly common market tomato around here.

Another "de colgar" tomato:



Tomatoes are 2 oz each

I solved it. I mistook two plants Chocmande and Gartenperle. Earlier it was strange that on the plant Gartenperle are some very big tomatoes.

Two more ... 100 en ramo de llagrima and bombeta. First is a colgar type, second is a long shelf life but not a true de colgar (weeks vs months).

Ilex, is there any way you can show actual pictures as youhave with others b'c I can only see actual pictures, not by any kind of attachments, etc. No doubt a software problem with my browser, but it's been this way for a long time, sadly, and no fix in sight.

I'll try to add pictures but I need to be at the computer, not my cell phone.
