    Cherry Tomato Linda

    Has anyone grown this one? Cherry Tomato Linda - I ordered it this spring from Nikitovka Seeds, description says "Ultra-early dwarf Tomato variety. Compact plant, excellent for containers and indoor growing. Dense, red, very tasty fruits, weight 70-90g (2.5-3.1 oz.). Cold-resistant and shade tolerant – during winter, growing lamps are required." There is a red and a pink version, I opted for the red.

    Here is the link with pictures https://nikitovka.com/en/tomato/1188...094400930.html

    When you scan through the pictures, there appear to be several versions of leaves, some rugose, some more droopy. Wonder what I'll get? I have some extra seeds, if anyone wants to try crossing it with any of Dan's creations.

    I've heard about it. Someone has asked me about it but I can't remember who - impressive photos. I'd love to try some. We could both make some crosses. Let me know if you need an address.

        It looks like this is either not totally stable or crossed. I started four seeds, and got two normal leafed plants, and two more rugose plants. I kind of wondered about some of the pictures in the Nikitovka seed catalog, because those could have gone both ways too. I will keep them all and see if the fruit is the same.

          I'm starting my last seeds for outside today. I have two packets I received a few years ago labeled Linda - one said it was from Ukraine. I received them from GG (I think that is GreatGardens) on Tville. I know nothing of their history or anything other than they are supposed to be a small plant with relatively large fruit.

          I'll let you know what they look like.

            I also had Linda incoming. Right now I am growing the sweetie pie version. Will post pictures later.

              Anything new on this one? I just received Nikitovka seeds from a friend and am intrigued.
