Pretty cool huh? Now knowing these plants are coming what did my niece do? Her and my sister went to Wal-Mart and picked up 5 more. One a very nice Park's Whopper and a Big Beef Hyb.the other two are Brandywine and two Golden Jubilee. I am a bit concerned for the latter plants as the Brandywine looks stunted and the two Golden Jubilee are the same cuz they are in the same pot.I am pretty sure that they will come around with a shot of Neptunes harvest.
Pervaya Lyubov which translates as First Love was introduced by Dr. Carolyn Male via her annual seed offer on Tomatoville.This was a few years ago. From what I know it is a pink tomato.I forget what size Carolyn said it was but I am pretty certain it can be used for sandwiches.
Edit to note: Was looking at Tatiana's Tomato Base and stand corrected on where Carolyn listed her seeds.She first offered them in the 2009 SSE Year Book.Country of origin is Russia.

You bet I will.Plan on telling Carolyn too Also I am getting 4 varieties that came from Grunt and Grungy's collection. 3 of which I got directly from them but as luck would have it the seeds are still in Michigan with my main seed collection.So I may get these in time to have a fall crop.One is Giant Italian Paste is the only one to date from Grunt and Grungy I have grown due to the insanity that has vexed my family the last few years.Giant Italian Paste is a huge plum type fruit which has gotten to about 1/2 pound for me and the flavor is excellent.Can be used for anything in my opinion even mater sandwiches which is unusual to me as a lot of paste maters are not normally good for that.Certainly what I would expect from a good Italian tomato.
Plants have not arrived yet.They seem to have diapered between here and Austin.But departed from Austin at 4:38 AM and where supposed to be here by today.USPS tracking has not been updated since they left Austin.
I got some early doll tomatoes from Abe yesterday. They are determanent 55 day to maturity. Something new Abe wants to try this season. So now we are growing three market tomatoes here, and two verites of canners....plums.
