    I received F3 seed and grew 11 plants in a garden. The tomatoes all tasted good, and a couple were delicious. Five formed big clusters but 6 were not prolific - one had only 2 little tomatoes, one had 4. The fruits all had sharp little nipples. They were 2.7 to 3.5 cm across.

    I sent seeds from three plants back to Dan.

    I have 57 seeds available from one with a good cluster of good-tasting 2.7 cm fruit.

      I have 14 seedlings growing in pots. 6 are taller than the others, and I won't save seeds from them, as I want to have mini plants to fruit over the winter. This year I will sow seeds in fall instead of in March.
