Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Kiss The Sky - ripe fruit. 2012-09-11.


Indet., regular leaf plants produce small purple-black round fruits that are shaped like round plums. The fruit color is a bit hazy, as in the parent Purple Haze F1 hybrid, perhaps just not as bright - but this could depend highly on sunshine intensity in your area. Fruit shape and size is exactly the same as in Purple Haze. Average 1.5 oz, juicy, very nice smokey flavor. I would consider it stable in F6 generation, as the fruits were consistent in shape, size, and color. This is a new release, so seeds are very limited. (15 seeds / packet)

B.C KO T 09 / Barbara Morgenroth, NY 08

Year grown: 2009 (F3), 2010 (F4), 2011 (crop failure), 2012 (F5 generation)

Location: Zone 7b, PNW, Anmore, BC, Canada (760 ft above sea level)


This was a growout of a very early generation of Psamathe:
Regular leaf – sweet, mellow, juicy, tomatoey; skins somewhat evident, clear skin.
Potato Leaf - very similar, perhaps a wee bit smoother, very good, clear skin.
Plants were not the healthiest and production not huge for a cherry, but taste makes up for it. Both the RL and PL have a very strange translucent skin – those are not stripes you see in the pics, but rather the internal structure of the tomato showing through the skin. Both ripen with light green shoulders and the RL shows no star pattern on blossom end.
