I'm wondering if anyone grew Burpee's new offering 4th of July.  It was
featured on the cover of their 98 catalogue and supposedly the tomatoes
ripened by the 4th.  It didn't say anything about flavor or size.  I'm
just wondering if it is true and if they tasted like anything at all.

I've been able to get Sub Arctic Maxi fruit by mid July with no problem
by starting them at the end of February or early March and setting them
out as soon as it is reasonably warmish under black plastic.  I almost
tried these new ones, but decided to stick with the tried and true.
