Is Rebel Starfighter VT16 the same as Marsha’s Starfighter or is that a newer cross?

Thank you for letting me know about the website. I have checked the past few weeks and they have been sold out.

I've never heard of Rebel Starfighter VT16, so I don't have it, but I do have one called Rebel Alliance. I wonder if it's related in any way besides the name? The Rebel Alliance is a dark tomato, mini-heart in shape, small salad in size, and I think multi floral and semi-determinate.

@FarmerShawn Rebel Starfighter (cross of Xanadu Picasso x RHK GWR Heart) and Rebel Alliance (cross of Not Purple Strawberry to Zluta Kytice) both have the same breeder, Russ Crowe, and both were introduced by Galactic Magic Seeds.

It's not newer, it's a different cultivar selected from the same cross. I grew the original F1 ftom Russ's cross that had all the Starfighter selections taken from it. I selected Marsha's Starfighter heart (no antho, yes brick red flesh and stripes), and Marsha's Starfighter Beefsteak, a striped beefsteak with antho and brick red flesh and huge production. Some Russian growers have them listed.

Thanks for the clarification, Marsha! I have seeds from you for the beefsteak but it did poorly for me last summer. Friends I shared plants with had better luck and said it was awesome. One saved seeds so we have a good supply now! Will be planting again this season and hope it performs better for me. I think I had some bad straw bales that may have been sprayed with something. Will be using new ones from a different vendor this year!

Hmm...now I'll have to do a growout of my saved seed (F7) of Marsha's Starfighter (Prime Heart F6). My memory is of an antho striped heart. But, I could be wrong.
