Purple Passion, Regular Leaf
|Purple Passion, Regular Leaf|
- 2 out of 4 seedlings grown from OH AN A seeds are potato leaf, and 2 are regular leaf. All seedlings from David Lemasters seed are regular leaf.
- 1. OH AN A 06 (Al Anderson of Troy, Ohio) / Todd Coleman, Ohio
- 2. David Lemasters, Pennsylvania 09
Year grown: 2011 (#1 and #2 - crop failure)
- This is a regular leaf variant of Purple Passion tomato.
- Original seeds from Todd Coleman of Sandusky, Ohio, who stabilized it over 4 years and shared it with Al Anderson of Troy, Ohio (OH AN A). Al described it as a regular leaf variety.
- First introduced in Seed Savers 2007 Yearbook by Neil Lockhart of Oblong, Illinois (IL LO N) , who received the seed from Al Anderson of Troy, Ohio. Neil listed it as potato leaf, and it is not clear if this variety is still unstable, or a seed mix-up happened in the seed exchanges, or Al Anderson made a mistake when describing it as regular leaf.
- Tatiana's note: I grew this variety from the seed obtained from Al Anderson in 2007, and got 50% split between regular leaf potato leaf seedlings. Therefore I am going to make the same assumption that Neil Lockhart likely made when he saw both the potato leaf and the regular leaf plants, that this variety is a potato leaf variety which was not entirely stable when Al Anderson shared the seeds around.
