I think KARMA Miracle is finally stable, 2 plants, both identical. @KarenO

So, I have to tell you, Marsha, about the KARMA Pink you sent me last year...
I planted it in a favored spot in the hoop house and it grew and flowered like gangbusters. When the fruit came on it was so tasty that it never made it to our market table, and quite often was gone before we ever got back into the house.
But then, I noticed a significant drop in the amount of fruit the plant was ripening. I just couldn't figure it out. I kept looking for aborted fruit drops on the ground... maybe from the heat?
Until one day, I saw Morley the dog sneak (and I mean sneak) into the hoop house and rob those precious beauties right off the vine! She has never done that - ever.
High praise indeed, for your KARMA Pink with a hoop house full of tasty cherries to choose from. Well done.

Such a cute story. I think KPink is my favorite for flavor, but,well see if that holds true for Miracle. My dog Ella eats tomatoes too. She can't eat very many or she gets into digestive trouble!😨

Great news on Miracle! This is the one that I have been itching to try because it is compact and because Karen has said before that she likes it best.

How tall is it Marsha?

It does sound perfect for a 3 gallon, but it is an indeterminate so keep that in mind.

Really stoked to hear "a little captain Lucky". That would be early enough for me to grow here, without the angst of late and large fruit that may or may not ripen in time. The mini-beef shape looks cool as well! :)

Here is KARMA Miracle. Karen and I both think it's stable now. Grew 2 plants, identical in every way, except one is a bit sweeter, so seeds for it will be saved.

KARMA Apricot, Karen thinks it's stable enough to offer. It is delicious! @imp.

The cut one isn't fully ripe, and the far right isn't, and the left one is too ripe, so I haven't had a true taste yet.
