I'm mostly just an observer of the tomato projects but I do find it interesting. My own tomatoes for next year are fairly boring by comparison I reckon but they are:
Utah Heart - a big, fat ox-heart that I found in Joseph's seeds a few years ago PP Rutgers - descended from a particularity productive Rutgers plant that showed up around 2012 Hoosier Rose 1 & 2 - big juicy pinkish tomatoes that segregated from the commercial Red Rose Mr Stripy - my saved strain of it, a big yellow/red tomato with better disease resistance than most Plum Dry - several years descended from Plum Regal F1, it tends to dry easily in the sun And some other unknown or unnamed sauce types
As far as breeding I'm just doing dehybridization of Celebrity F1 and Iron Lady F1 for their disease tolerance
Also: Little Pimp Mix - a diverse group of small sweet tomatoes that came from a random cross with pimpinellifolium. Little Red Pimp - the sweetest, most disease resistant of above. The only ones I save seeds from, the rest just volunteer.
The woman came home one day from the store with some tomatoes called Flavor Bomb, I tasted one for some reason and was shocked at the flavor. If a hothouse tomato in January can taste like that I wonder what it will be like grown fresh? Looked it up, the web site had a FAQ and one was if they sold seeds, they don't. It went on to say it was an F1 and saved seeds wouldn't produce consistently but didn't say you can't do it, so I plan to see what comes from it. Also the web site sounded like there might be wild genetics in it but no specifics. Just look up Flavor Bomb Tomato if your curious.
Nothing ruins a neighborhood like paved roads and water lines.
Lee of J and L Gardens posted an update a week ago on this tomatoville thread. I think he is talking about his Weight in Gold and Wild Child varieties. Exciting stuff. Gives an idea of how long it will be to get something good from the habrochaites hybrids when he talks about a decade to get to Weight in Gold.
reed- Andrew sent me an exserted pimp type last year. I'm excited for it because I think it will produce some hybrids.
I have several envelopes of tomato seeds I need to assay for hybrids come to think of it.
Not sure if I will work on the disease tolerant strains this year. I.E. grow out Iron Lady F2. If I do I'll just grow out a couple. I don't seem to have much luck with emasculation in the field, it seems better for greenhouse and indoors growing. Which leaves me with my exserteds and just adding pollen than trying to find the hybrids.
