Thanks for all of the positive messages, both public and private. I 
have 3 packets of seeds left and have mailed about 25 including one 
to my mother in upstate New York. She hasn't grown a tomato since 
WW II when she had a victory garden, but is going to try it.

For those of you who will be growing it, the Seminis checklist is 
pretty simple: Rate it from 1 to 5 (5 is better) and add any 
comments. I'm particularly interested in days from transplant to 
first harvest in different growing zones. The advertisement says 80 
days which I think puts it on the mid to late cusp. Since most 
gardeners anywhere in the world can get through an 80 day growing 
season, (Antartica excepted), my Scandinavian customers should be 
very happy.

Please let us all know how it does for you. I expect most of the 
larger retail seed companies to be offering it next year and as many 
have mentioned, highly touted varieties don't always grow as 

My wife says that in the 25 years we've been married, she's never 
called me the "Terminator", but she really likes "Messiah"<VBG>.
