I started these from seeds. I planted then in three different locations with different soil conditions and support systems. The year has been moderate to wet, with average heat and always high humidity.

1 - Planted in raised beds last week of May with no support. Fruit set heavily, but didn't seem to ripen well. The plants got badly sun-burnt as did the fruits. Pulled dead plants out August 30.

So far so good with this plant. I am growing two of these at the moment and both are strong and healthy and bearing little tomato's. Cant wait for them to ripen so I can see the stripes.

Of course where I am from it is the tomato season is now!

Although the plants are loaded with tomatoes and the first one was ripe in July (which is good for around here) I thought the taste was just OK ... I'll wait for my brandywines (which don't ripen until August) ...
