the best loking tomato plant in my garden this year is a spontaneous one. I cannot yet figure out what it is. I'll send pics in case someone can help me, yet, this is not the point.
This plant has been enduring negative temeratures at least 4 times, without me doing anything to protect it, then I let it suffer under the really heavy temperatures we've had for more than two month. No irrigation at all (until 2 days ago, it had not been raining a single drop for something like 10 weeks).
This plant is starting to set fruits, and is by far the best looking one.
I'll send pictures when possible.
My point is : would it be interesting to make a cross with this plant ? and which direction should I be looking ?

Thanks for bringing up tomatoes for a change. Yes, I have frost resistant tomatoes. Norelco is my best one but I have so many I can't even remember their names. Most all of the go back to 77 280. The fruits can even take freezing. I have been using these in my breeding work for 33 years. The origin goes back to the highest altitudes where wild tomatoes can exist in the wild.
I am in the Seattle area and you can bet I am working on that big time.
