Seeds originated here: http://www.tomatogrowers.com/

Blush

Sunset Falls Hybrid

Sioux

Pink Berkeley Tie-Die

As for the method; nothing special.

Good soil looked after with lots of organic material added regularly.

Some organic fertilizer at mid-season.

Weekly neem based spray to keep away the bugs.

Plants easily climb to 15 or more feet, need good support. (picture attached)

Enjoy

Hello All, the PBT-Dye is a nice eating tom, soidog2 has a way with tomatoes and things,

so I asked if he would like to try some and he said yes, and it looks like he and his family

had some good eating along with the other tom's.

Turnpike,I've been ordering from TGS for 15+ and direct to LOS for 5 years and have NOT

had any order problems or non deliveries, not saying it can't happen, but never order some

thing you can't afford to lose.

Some more pictures, It would be difficult to overrate the cherry indigo taste (see attached pictures)

TGS is a fine company, your local post office makes all the difference in you getting the seeds. Some of the small village PO are kind of screwy!

In ground growing tips:

Start your seeds in trays, around August, in a shady place.

At the same time; prepare your soil by tilling in as much organic material as you can find; I put one sack of cow manure per, roughly, one square meter of dirt.

Make sure it is a good location, not too sunny and well drained.

Prepare a strong trellis; they will grow and grow, if happy.

Once the seedlings have three/four sets of leaves, they go in the ground.

First few days, water them twice a day (sparingly) and protect them from snails and assorted bugs to insure a vigorous start.

Replace any weaklings or any that show any sign of wilting.

Institute a strict weekly spraying program (organic neem based) to keep them healthy.

Once they start flowering, add more manure or some other organic fertilizer.

Watch them grow and enjoy eating.

Hello All, soidog2, nice pictures! My wife took some indigo apple and

PBT-dye to the village for a friends German husband to try as he loves

tom's, I find out tonight that they didn't reach him, they ended up in the

som dum, sad.

Turnpike, I'm looking at TGS Big Brandy Hyb., Genuwine Hyb., Phoenix

Hyb., Black Krim, Cherokee Chocolate, and Indigo Beauty for large fruit

and Garnet(cherry) and Mountain Magic Hyb.

I'm a lover of black tom's, so back to my first tom in LOS, the Krim and

it cousin the Cherokee Chocolate, even that I hate growing Ind's.

This is today's before the rain's pick, a couple Indigo Apples and a PBT-dye

that was great at dinner.

your picks are duly noted, rice. my cherokee purple this year are the only ones out of about 15 varieties that are doing anything i could be remotely proud of. the tommy toe are good as well, but they always seem to do good for me.

soidog, thanks for the advice....going to go back to basics next year and plant a lot in the ground, the buckets not so much. going to purchase a tiller, procuring the cow sh*t is the easy part.

thanks to the both of you for the advice and the awesome pictures. lucky you don't have me for a neighbor, i'd be "popping in" daily this time of year with empty basket in hand.

Another good source; I prepared these for next season's crop.

Best regards.

i use these guys already, but my brother (who i work with offshore) would bring them with him from canada after i ordered them and had them delivered to his place.

but the lucky sob has just retired. do these guys ship international, soidog?

and if i can bend your ear once more.....any hot picks? (sounds like we're at the horse races)

thanks in advance, and once again i'm very impressed with your results.

Its like this; next to what you can buy; anything you manage to grow at home will taste great.

Since it appears you are still experimenting; I would start with some of the proven hot weather hybrids like "solar fire" or try this :

http://www.tomatofest.com/tomato-seeds-tropical-hot-humid-collection.html ,

or this: http://www.tomatodirt.com/tomatoes-for-the-south.html

Black Russian types seem to be doing well, tasty too.

Real heirlooms lack disease resistance and will not set fruit in hot weather.

Cherry types are much easier to grow and will continue to produce for a long time.

Not sure if above sites will ship overseas; you have to try them.

Best regards.

Just like the family (and probably neighbours).

Why the hell do they have to take 20 or more at a time! And they always pick them before they are ripened!
