I don’t know if this tomato mutated or crossed. It is a slow, upward-growing indeterminate almost assuredly the Dester tomato. None have matured so I can’t confirm with a final color clue, but they are very similar in type to the plant next to it and unlike any others I have growing. The plant is creating monster trusses of medium sized tomatoes. The plant is showing signs of everything I want out of a tomato for a growth habbit–huge amounts of fruit set, beautifully shapped, and doesn’t grow vertically fast. If the fruit tastes as good as Dester normally does, I’m obviously going to keep seed! It has produced more tomatoes than any other including the hybrids and looks good doing it. There’s a possibility it’s a cross with another tomato from last year. The seed that this came from was saved from my wicking tomato platforms last year. The problem is, who knows what it could have crossed with as there were over 15 varieties of heirloom tomatoes last year. I sure hope it tastes good. Thought I’d share this oddity of a plant.

I grow in a system I call FAWN which is a modified hydroponic drip system. The media I grow in is aged rice hulls with parboiled rice hulls mixed. This has proven to be a great mix for me. I use Masterblend fertilizer as my nutrients to every plant grown. I’ve been pretty successful with […]
