Anyone know anything about this hybrid?It is advertised to be a late and a high producer?

All I know about it is probably the same that you do. That is, it's a Harris bred variety, one of the newer hybrids. I don't know of anyone who has grow it and reported back on it specifically.

But from those that like to grow Harris hybrids, and I'm one of them, taste-wise the faves still seem to be Supersonic and Jet Star, Moreton Hybrid no longer being sold. All three are a result of some of the earliest breeding efforts they did and as far as I'm concerned have some of the best tastes one will find in hybrids.

It's a great late deteminate with loads of 10+ oz fruit.

Taste is good also, seeds are small.

I have over 500 in that are just setting the first cluster.

I like the Jet Stars are the Moretons worth seeking out to find seeds somewhere are they as good as Jet Star in taste & production?

I have grown Primetime for 4 years and find them to be a very good tomato. They are a LARGE late determinate which sets a good crop of delicious tomatoes, every one is perfect and uniform(about 10-12 oz.). Supersonic is still my favorite large tomato, but Primetime is really good too, it comes on when everything else is almost done.

There's already a long thread here about Moreton Hybrid which I'm sure you can find with a quick scan or search.

Seed production for Moreton Hybrid has ceased.

The only seed you'll find is in the hands of some folks who already had some seeds, witness what you read in that long thread.

I sit here with a partially full pack of Moreton Hybrid seeds myself.

And yes, it was just as productive as Jet Star and Supersonic are.

Of those three that were hybridized so many years ago, my favoite is still Supersonic and seeds are still being sold.
