I'm growing your Schimmeig Creg this year, Tom. I have also grown Green
Grape (I was very put off by the color, unfortunately), Green Zebra
(excellent flavor) and Banana Legs. I love Banana Legs, and a friend
started a nursery business, so I talked her into carrying Banana Legs.
Since she usually gave a free plant with a fairly big order, she started
giving out Banana Legs plants to those who had children. Big hit, and the
kids were excited about having their own unusual tomato plant...Great idea!
I'll have to try your others too.  Thanks for your efforts. Sincerely,
