    That happens in my house too maddening!

    Cyril's choice, lots of fruits, non ripe as yet.
    dancing with smurfs, load of stunning fruit, tastes awful.
    Everything that is not a F1 has been rubbish, at this rate it's unlikely I'll have anything to pass on.

    What a shame Seasprout! I'm not having a huge success ...I have a few rodents that keep taking chunks out of my fruit I managed to save some beautiful Lima Korai specimens, bagged them on the plants...they were really ripe, I fermented them on the kitchen window for a day longer than usual....and most of them sprouted! It's been very hot in my kitchen with the aga pumping heat ive hot some brown sugar....started them very late..fingers crossed I'll get some ripe ones.

    Yellow Perfection

    And just because we can, I'll do the "Rosella" too, just for interest's sake!
    Update on proceedings!

    We have "Yellow Perfection" 3 Tomatoes set aside for seed collection

    "Harbinger" have 2 tomatoes set aside. "Black Krim" never set fruit! Plant still alive n thriving, just don't get that, will persevere n see what happens, But "Rosella" still a little confused as to this is an F1 or not! But fruit saved, will keep you updated!

    Ive looked everywhere...I found one mention that Rosella was an F1 on a tesco website but none of the seed suppliers mention it so I'll stick my head out and say it isn't.

    Does anyone have any info that says it is an F1?
