Amana Orange cross (bicolor with stripes)

This post was updated on .
I harvested, seeded and ate a fruit from my Amana Orange cross on 26 Aug 2019. It tasted awesome! It had great firm texture like Amana Oange has in the past, too. The shape is like the Amana Orange I grew in 2017, but the fruit isn't very big.

I suspect that Girl Girl's Weird Thing was the father plant. It had a lot more flavor than Girl Girl's Weird Thing has in the past for me, though, and a lot more than Amana Orange, too. Maybe that's because I grew it with black plastic this time. Maybe the cross brought out more flavor. Or, maybe the year did.

Pink Berkeley Tie Dye is another candidate for the father. Indian Zebra (perhaps the same as Indian Stripe) is another possibility.

The inside has some pink in it. The exterior is an interesting color.

I don't know why the fruits aren't larger.

I'm getting new Amana Orange seeds from ginger2778 of TomatoJunction.com. I'm excited.
