Purple Passion Tomato (pic)

appmyJune 6, 2007

I am having trouble finding out much on the Purple Passion Tomato. I received the seed this year in an exchange. Right now it is about 16 inches tall with huge blossoms on it. I thought it was an indeterminate, but one website said it will only grow 18 inches tall. Any info on this one would be great!!!!!

Here is a link that might be useful: See more of my tomato photos on my site
