Has anyone grown this one; is this pic what it's supposed to look like? I am growing it and Captain Lucky for the first time and this pic looks similar to both.

Gary, did you get it out of the Scheepers catalog? I get that catalog but don't pay much attention to it but when Googling your variety that's the onhly place that came up and no picture but said it was developed by someone in CA and there was another one they listed from the ame person.

The exterior was descibed, but nothing about the multi-colored interior.

Maybe someonehere has grown it but it looks like it isn't very well known.

What did you think of it as compared with Captain Lucky or even Ananas Noir?

That thing looks alot like C-Lucky!
But Greg, in your pic it looks alot like a Heart shape...or...something from a fused blossom.
The latter Im sure (correct me if Im wrong)

I got the seeds from a trade with Lurley;

I only grew one plant it didn't do well and only got 4 tomatd; the fruits were odd shaped and I am not sure they were normal; don't know if it was from a fused blossom. It was not a heart just a wierd shape.

Guess I should just grow it next year.
