    I've seen several seed companies have tomatoes from this company this year. Has anyone had a taste of them yet? I'm trying to decide whether to try them or not this year.

    Did you forget to post a link or something? I'm not sure exactly what you are talking about?

    Thanks for the links. Obviously I'm not familiar with them at all.

    It looks like they are a seed breeding company and are offering a packet of seven different varieties they have developed through that offer from Johnny's.

    Thanks. Looks like some who grew them last year are pleased. I may have to try them.

    I like Johnny's, and I usually trust them when they say a variety is good. The problem is that I'm always so skeptical--conditioned by seed descriptions from companies such as Burpee where according to them, every plant is superlative and perfect and wonderful, and all are above average!

    Try them!! I planted Striped Roman, Green Zebra and Violet Jasper and I love these tomatoes! Test them out and come back and tell us how they were! [​IMG]

    I think I will. I'm in love with the ones with the metallic green stripes.

    This is an old thread, but I thought I would revive it.

    This year I grew "Maglia Rosa" and "Blush" tomato varieties from Artisan Seeds. Both are great tasting, although I think Blush tastes the best - sweet and fruity. They are both beautiful elongated cherry tomatoes about 2" long. Maglia Rosa is pearly pink which can be grown in a container, and Blush is a yellow indeterminate. Thoroughly recommended :)
