Black Sea Man (BSM)...Indeterminate???

Cdon(7a)August 9, 2012

I am growing my first BSM this year from a seedling I got from Tomatomania (basically a travelling road show of heirlooms on the east & west coasts).

The plant was labeled as a determinate, and did set fruit like one, most of which ripened in the last 2-3 weeks.

However, as I was searching for other ripe stragglers that I missed, I noticed quite a few branches had some fairly vigorous, healthy looking growth & blooms, some of which is setting new fruit right now.

My question thus, is, is this normal/ are all BSM plants determinate? I grew a few patio and other determinates in years past, and yeah, there would be a bit of wispy new growth after the first flush of fruit ripened, but nothing like this.

Is there such a thing as an indeterminate BSM? I am kinda wondering if BSM is anything like Rutgers where some are sold as determinate and others as indeterminate. Thoughts?

FAIK BSM is determinate only. However, growing conditions provided and weather permitting, many determinates will sprout new lateral growth and even produce a small 2nd crop. That sounds like what you are describing.
