I see a lot of people growing Porkchops record seeds.
How are the plants doing?

One of my two plants is producing a lot of single flower panicles.
Those are manly nice fused flowers, but I was not able to grow at least one to a counting size, because of bad conditions and suboptimal care.
You can see a short video of a late fruit at my FB profile.

Any one else had the same at his plants?
I will try to keep clones over winter to get second chance growing netxt season.

I noticed the same. I think I was driving too fast.... better later on after lifting the pedal....too late by then unfortunately. Good luck Udo!!

I curled some of my leaves too... I think the tomatoes consider excess fertilizer to be a stress. Not sure what the exact issue was, but I know I can do better.

Yes, I had more giant singles then megablooms. I grew my largest single ever at 5.61 lb. from the 9.65. Great genetics and will grow again,

Just now seeing fruits on a few megablooms. First frost last night 11 days too early. Waiting to see as the day warms.

I had a lot of trouble getting mega blooms on the 9.65. It took around until the beginning of September but I finally got one and it’s a good one. There are leaves on the plant that are probably approaching four months old. I’ve stuck with this plant, particularly with the disease program, and now I’m counting on it to reward me with a late season PB!

Mostly singles early on.
Plant is now 6 months old and overgrown.
Producing lots of multi fused blossoms now.
Of course it’s too late to do anything about it.
