Yes, it is a new Baker Creek freebie and I will try it out this year. I am going to start selling some plants at the farmers market and we'll see what other people have to say about the different varieties. I'll put up a website with some background on the plant varieties and how I grow them organically plus I'll be able to get feedback from my customers to better plan for the next season.
Lots of people love Carbon. Never tried it, myself, but I traded for it recently, and I might grow it, this year. I have grown Ron's Carbon Copy, however, which was very sweet in an earthy way. It's related to Carbon, and has much smaller fruit.
binnylou,martywny,Mumsey,desertwoman,pepperhead212,davidjp,Vokar, I was watching a Spring Hill Farms video about Tumbling Tom tomatoes in hanging baskets and decided I am going to try some at the farmers market this year. Many people regularly buy the tried and true items but I think the novelty items will sell out quickly and at a decent price. I just ordered some of the seeds from Reimer, went with the red variety since they appeal to a wider variety of people.
I’ve been playing the seed search game for a couple of weeks. I was trying to buy Beefy Boy tomato, Fortex pole beans, and Carbon tomato in the same order. I finally gave up. I found a good supply of Beefy Boy in my seed stash. I should have dug a bit deeper. I gave up on Fortex...I’ll just plant the seeds that I saved and be satisfied with what I get. And, I found Carbon at Baker Creek, so that one is free shipping. I’ve read mixed reviews on Carbon...I’ll have to see how it performs in my garden.
