Protecting against cross pollination
I have read the FAQs on protecting against cross pollination and on seed saving. My husband was given a plant by a co worker last week that was bred and developed by her neighbor, a Mr.Waddell, who is in his nineties now. She brought to a potluck last year sliced "Mr. Waddell" tomatoes and my husband said they were fantastic tasting. (And he knows good tomatoes!) So we asked her to get us a plant this year as he only gives them out to family and friends. I have never saved seed before and we do have bees swarming all over our plants which are full of blooms, so cross pollination is a real possibility in our garden. Reading the FAQs to guarantee purity I need to bag the blossoms. How fine does the mesh need to be? Since the plant is still small with newly forming buds I even thought of draping mesh over the Texas tomato cages to protect from cross pollination as ,from the FAQs a bag reduces productivity. So excited to try this tomato!
