Just wanted to show some progress of few "special" plants I'm growing this year.
First - TZ's crosses. Transplanted last week into an individual bed... All of the plants of Kosovo X Green Sausage look very healthy, kinda droopy foliage, I think similar to Kosovo...
All have pointy fruits:
Except for maybe one:
Kosovo x (Lime Green Salad X Green Sausage) plants, now they are a little more mature, are showing some difference from the first crosses, little stockier, thicker stems. Pointy fruits with distinct nipples so far:
This one was a volunteer my mother found in her rose bed in 2009, I've transplanted it to the main garden, and what we've gotten, were amazingly sweet, firm red pear shaped fruit on short, bushy plant with amazing multiflora... There are literally thousands of flowers and setting fruit in any heat:
I'm assuming this was a hybrid once, since the following year, fruits were actually yellow/green at maturity... And due to their texture, we actually been making sweet preserves (very similar to gooseberry preserves for that matter):
So I'm at F4 fruit this year, interesting what color/flavor would it be, shape is exact as the prior growouts (and absolutely loaded, container grown and garden)
Last, but not least, crosses of another avid tomato grower, these are NARX F3 x ZebraHeart, we are looking for anything interesting with stripes and great taste, but I'm also hoping for a striped heart.
Don't know yet what colors are we going to get as a final result, but very interesting looking fruits so far:
So despite the unfortunate herbicide damage to the main crop, there is still plenty to enjoy in the garden!
P.S. TZ, I know you growing out many crosses this year, would love to hear and see what you getting out of your plants!
