FYI Here are their descriptions copied from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange:
55 days. (Determinate) [Heirloom from Edmonton, Canada, sent to SESE from Dr. Male. Introduced 1997.] The best choice for an extra early tomato - highly productive, flavorful and large-fruited. By far the earliest variety we offer, 'Sophie's Choice' ripens ahead of all other extra-early varieties in our trials. Unlike other extra-early varieties, the fruits are flavorful and large, averaging 6 to 8 ounces and weighing up to 12 ounces. 'Sophie's Choice' has an orange-red exterior and deep red interior. Produces large fruit on a small plant only 18 to 24" tall. Quality is best in cool climates. Does not handle heat or drought well.
I started the seeds on Sept 2. Sophie's Choice was fast off the block. It was already uppotted once, and I'm starting to Uppot into final size containers now. I just uppotted Zarnitsa seedlings from a community seed flat to individual containers.Zarnitsa:
60 days. (short indeterminate) 'Zarnitsa' translates from the Cyrillic as "summer lightning". An early bearing, productive, red fruited variety with fruit averaging 2" high x 2-1/2" wide. Vines are short and suited for staking or ground culture. An outstanding feature of this variety is its flavor which is well balanced, sweet, buttery, and smooth. Resists cracking.
Here are a couple of photos of Sophie's Choice in a 2 gal bucket and a 1/2 gal (or is that a 1 gal?) nursery container -- is it considered a dwarf? It's described as 18"-24" at maturity:
More Sophie's Choice seedlings:
YES, yes. I have SIX Sophie's Choice plants. WHERE I think I'm going to put them, I have no idea But it's a determinate variety, so maybe I can hold them back in the smaller container to succession to maturity. Or maybe I'll give them away as Christmas presents....
...I have FOUR Zarnitsa seedlings and started another variety, and my fermentation container of Black Krim was left too late and all the seeds started to germinate so I sowed them and they are starting to sprout.....
