Favorie de Bretagne Tomato

Update: All taken.

I have a limited amount (5 envelopes) of Favorie de Bretagne seeds to share with folks who would enjoy growing it this year. For me, it was crazy prolific and behaved very much like a dwarf variety (a small/short one, at that!). Please pm me, if interested.

"Favorie de Bretagne is a determinate, green-and-gold striped variety with deep yellow hues when ripe. Sausage-shaped with a pointy tip, fruits range from 1-3” long. It has a sweet, fruity, mild flavour and looks beautiful in a salad or served on a vegetable platter. Some descriptions online say the plants can reach up to 3 feet in height. Mine grew in a compact sprawling habit (about 2 feet across) that stayed low to the ground and did not use the cages I planted over them for support. They would also do well in large pots or hanging baskets (at least 12” in diameter). Prone to splitting if over-watered. Developed by Tom Wagner. 2023 seed."

Great pictures! :) I'm loving the little plants, they are so cute and vigorous but short with the wispy leaves.
Looking forward to stripey fruit... many thanks!

Oh, that's great to hear! I'm so glad you're growing them. I hope they produce lots for you as well.
