Varieties you simply can't find
 
I'd like this thread to be a source for tomato varieties to look out for.


I'll start it with Angel Heart.

Amish Yellowish Orange Oxheart

Exactly :).

Interesting, I see the ALYO seeds are for sale in New Zealand, where the research was conducted. Perhaps our members down under can assist in some way.

Boy those look good! How comes no one mentions them here?

I have yet to find a viable source for Churra Plum.


Tried to order it from Ms. Penn last year but never got a reply to my email & the Delectation site totally confuses me.


Variegated Lange Ærmer & some other Tom Wagner varieties are also elusive.

Divine Maltese paste tomato.

Tatiana's offered it back in 2014-2016, but no longer has it.

Growing that this year - took me two years to get it and that was thanks to Tormato. If it does well I'll be sending seeds into the MMMM, and if you don't participate just ask me this Fall to send you some seeds.

SueCT March 14, 2019 10:15 PM

Estler's Mortgage Lifter. I have a few seeds left that Carolyn sent me that are getting a little old, and my own saved seeds, but I fear if mine start to get crossed I will loose the orignal strain. I would love to see them commercially available again.

Japanese Pink Cherry. I could not find it in a Google search.

AlittleSalt March 15, 2019 01:48 AM

[QUOTE=e.thad;729572]Japanese Pink Cherry. I could not find it in a Google search.[/QUOTE]

I agree.

Also Medovaya Kaplya.

Gardadore March 15, 2019 04:40 AM

Nyrfan,
Delectation can be confusing in the beginning but once you get to his list of tomatoes you can download it in a PDF. He is easy to reach via Email when you go to the Delectation site and answers promptly as well as fulfills orders in a timely manner. He is a one man operation but has a wonderful list. I couldn’t find seeds for Joe’s Pink Oxheart but he had them.
I don’t know if this link will work for his spreadsheet but here it is:

LDiane March 15, 2019 01:12 PM

That may be difficult to find because the spelling varies so a google search may not find it.

Sandhill has Medovaja Kapiyia but I guess not many as there is a 1 pkt limit.

Thanks so much for this!
I will be contacting you in the Fall for sure!
Am also curious to hear if it is as great as Tania's reviews.

Here's a link to J&L. They have this one, price is $4.00 including shipping.

I got both of those from tormato's swap.

Fusion_power March 16, 2019 01:40 AM

I have about 4000 seed of Estlers Mortgage Lifter. I discussed this variety with Glenn at Sandhill a week ago and am sending him enough seed to grow it this year. Barring incident, it will be available next spring. Meantime, if anyone desperately needs seed, send me a message with an address and I'll put some in the mail.

Thank you, I had forgotten about that site. Medovaya Kaplya seems to be a variety best grown by itself. It seems to cross easier than other varieties. Thank you for reminding me :)

Wi-sunflower March 16, 2019 11:18 AM

Also Medovaya Kaplya.



I have Medovaya Kaplya listed on my site.

Carol

Tormato March 16, 2019 02:44 PM

I have Divine Maltese.
I think I have Japanese Pink Cherry, maybe one very old pack of Estler's Mortgage Lifter, and it looks like others have Medovaya Kaplya, which I likely have, too.

P.S. If you don't ask, that may be why you can't find them.;)

[EDIT: Sorry, I didn't refresh the page so I didn't see this was already answered! oops!]

I have these seeds from a trade - apparently a yellow pear cherry? They are dated as 2013. Not on my grow list any time soon. Be happy to send them - PM me if you are interested.

Jeff

SueCT March 16, 2019 09:23 PM

That is great news, Fusion Power! I am glad to see it coming back. I can wait until it is available, but then I will purchase some fresh seed. Although I do save seeds, I don't bag and I like to keep some that I know are true.

sic transit gloria March 17, 2019 11:45 AM

ML Estler's was heavily traded 10 years ago or so. There's plenty of it out "there."

Raiquee March 17, 2019 11:55 AM

I am growing Japanese pink cherry this year (2019) and will be putting seeds into the MMMM this fall. Assuming they do well.

Fusion_power March 17, 2019 05:49 PM

[QUOTE]ML Estler's was heavily traded 10 years ago or so. There's plenty of it out "there." [/QUOTE] Yes, but not being sold to my knowledge. That is why I want Glenn to carry it.


For those who asked for Estler's Mortgage Lifter seed, I have them in stamped envelopes and will drop in the mail tomorrow. I am also including a pack of Hibor which is a small orange pear shaped tomato that is sweeter than Sungold.

DonDuck March 17, 2019 09:41 PM

Husky Cherry Red! I'm pretty sure it is a hybrid. I know Bonnie plants is stocking some at Home Depot stores so I hope I can find a couple of plants there. I grew them a few years ago with great results, but I was pretty hung up on open pollinated plants and seed. Today my primary interest is in the tomato quality and production and healthy plants so I am trying some newer hybrid varieties plus a few hybrds that performed well in the past.
