“Groovy Tunes” came from my friend Seasideseeds in our gardening forum. He crossed Kamatis Tagalog x Cherokee Tiger F3 and came up with a number of very nice results. I was given permission to pursue a promising segregant, which I did, to stability and use it for whatever purpose I liked. Groovy Tunes is a purple tomato (clear epidermis) with green stripes on a plant with glowing chartreuse foliage. It has the dwarf growth habit of bushy rugose leaves and thick central stem with limited height. This variety can be grown as a micro-dwarf or as a balcony dwarf. If you grow Groovy Tunes in full sun in a 1-gallon pot, you will get a bushy little plant about 12” tall with large cherry-sized fruits. If you grow it in a very large pot, the plant will be bigger in width and height (14-16” tall) and it will yield cocktail/saladette sized fruits. If you grow Groovy Tunes indoors or in less than full sun, the plant will stretch and can grow 24” tall. The fruits are full-flavored, as purple fruits normally are, with both sweet and acid taste. If overwatered when ripening, the taste will not be as good.
Groovy Tunes does seem to have inherited some heat/humidity tolerance from its Kamatis Tagalog parent, and has grown well for me each season so far.
NOTE: This variety is limited to one packet per order.
