Favorite determinate types ?
Weather called for a 30% chance of rain. Didn't say anything about storms or hail. The storm formed almost on top of me and so by the time I knew what was going on, damage had been done.
I took off for the seed trays right away I was soaked before i made it two steps. This storm is what's known locally as a "toad Strangler" I grabbed up the two trays and ran for the cover of the porch. I was covered with potting mix by the time I made it. All of 15 feet.
I got them to safety went back out in the rain to remove the mix and then got inside because lightening is quick and I'm to slow to stop fast !
Anyway, One tray had 144 cells of Kellogg's breakfast and NH Surecrop seedlings. Most many were up and an inch or so high. Not sure of the loss as yet. The second tray was I believe 84 cells of Rutgers that were started yesterday. No way to know how much seed was washed out other than allowing time to see what sprouts. I hate to even look and see what the hail did to the sprouts.
So I sit here waiting for the storm to pass and thinking about the list I have put together from input given by you. There don't seem to be a determinate type in that list.
So now I'm looking for a determinate tomato that is known for good yields and has a good tomato flavor. Don't have to be tart, just not bland please.
If anyone has Mott's Clamato juice tomato seed, I WANT SOME ! LOL Seriously, I'd love the recipe if anyone has a good copycat for this stuff.
All I could ever ask for then would be a salt shaker bush to grow beside them !
