Karen, were you able to find Gunnar? I know I told you that he was about the last one to post in that Language Translation thread.

I should have linked to it but didn't, so did you find it?

Still hoping you get some seeds and it won't be a futile cold case anymore.

I'm tryng to catch up here.

Dorota that's wonderful news. Do you know if they will be fresh seeds or older seeds, and if the latter Karen knows how to wake them up.

I am definitely interested in the pomidor paw seed regardless of its age.

Carolyn, I am so excited too. I have never heard about this tomato before. It is very rare variety, almost nobody has the seeds.

Karen, the forum member, who will send me the seeds, said that they are not fresh, but should germinate without no problem. If you need an exact date, if it will help you to start the seeds, I will ask her how old this seeds are.

I have had no trouble germinating older seeds. I find tomato seed lasts for years stored. If the age is known that's nice to know but not necessary.

Paw (PAF 182) tomato is well-known in Poland.

I believe you can still buy it from the seed company PlantiCo.
They are still maintain its seed production.

P.S. We call a tomato POMIDOR in most Slavic countries :-)

Andrey, I found this web page too, when I googled for the tomato Paw. Unfortunately, this variety is not registered in the varieties register now, and as I know isn't sold by any seed company.

Dorota has a few seeds entire already. Thank you so very much!
As a side note, several people who participate in her garden forum in Poland are planning to grow it and save seed to revive this variety which used to be popular but has been sort of forgotten. That is wonderful!
