From tomatoes harvested on 6-23-2012 (see previous Blog post), I saved seeds and planted 20 of those on 7-03-2012. Eventually, 17 of those emerged.
On 8-02-2012, I transplanted some of those seedlings into large (about 1.5 gallon) pots.
Today, I picked two ripe tomatoes! This calculates to:
• 87 day generation time (6-23 to 9-17)
• 76 days from seed sowing to first ripe fruits
• 46 days from transplanting
This one’s going to be tough to beat for earliness! The taste is just fine to me, but this time of year I’ve got plent of other varieties to keep my interest.
