I'm definitely sending Pruden's Black, Glovel (my new favorite pink), Marvelosa, Gardener's Sweetheart, and Ron's Carbon Copy. I'm still deciding on the rest...

Tormato will be posting non-tomato seeds in a separate list, but here is a sneak preview of the decorative pumpkins I bought for decoration (using Harris Seeds as id reference) and will scoop tomorrow

Blue Doll F1
One Too Many F1
Porcelain Doll F1
Cotton Candy

Should be fun to compare what we get as grow outs next year.

One Two Many F1 seeds are drying. I was surprised that the interior flesh is not the least but orange. It was rather hollow too. Hardly any flesh to scoop out. Great for decoration if that is what you are looking for.

A good cook friend made pumpkin pie from a white pumpkin and wasn't too impressed, so I tossed the rind. Did not want to attract critters to the porch eating the rind like some here do. :0

The Blue Doll F1 was delish! It is a very heavy dense pumpkin compared to a decorative orange globe. The meat was so sweet. I cooked it for about an hour and a half and stood over the counter lapping it up with butter close to midnight. It didn't produce as many seeds as the One Too Many F1 (maybe less than half) but I still have lots to share. I hope they dry in time for the swap. otherwise I'll have a seed offer in the spring. I read that blue pumpkins originated in Australia. Anyone know the parents of this hybrid?

I've never grown a winter squash before except for acorrn. I may have to grow a few less tomatoes (gasp) and more winter squash next summer.

I sent in seeds from these plants:

TOMATO
1. TIGRETTE (bagged): indet., orange, with stripes on elongated fruits. Plant looks exactly as green tiger and taste is identic (sweet, superb flovor), but production was higher for me. I got them from this site: http://www.mooiemoestuin.nl/tomaat2/tigrette/
2. HOHLOMA (bagged and non bagged): indet. roma tomato. I am not sure how it is written. Have seen: hochloma, hohloma, khokhloma.
3. REVEREND MICHAEL KEYES (bagged): indet., multiflora (but less productive than rose quartz), red, plum cherry.
4. SNOW WHITE (bagged): indet., white cherry.
5. GREEN GRAPE (bagged): bush, sweet green when ripe cherry.
6. AURANTIACUM (bagged): indet., multiflora, yellow cherry.
7. PICCOLO F7 (bagged): indet., red cherry. Piccolo is a hybrid sold under the same 'Honingtomaat' in Belgium/Holland/Germany. F7, I suppose it is stable by now. Very tasty: sweet but stiff skin.
8. ROSE QUARTZ MULTIFLORA (bagged): indet., multiflora, pink cherry.

PEPPERS
1. MIX BIQUINHO AND BIQUINHO IRACEMA (not bagged): capsicum chinense, hardly any heat.
2. LIPSTICK (not bagged): capsicum annuum
3. MINI BELL YELLOW (not bagged): capsicum annuum
4. KABOUTERMUTSENPAPRIKA (not bagged): capsicum annuum. sweet red 'gnome hat' pepper. Pic: http://www.mooiemoestuin.nl/Paprika/kaboutermuts/
5. NUMEX SUAVE ORANGE (I mistakingly wrote 'yellow') (not bagged): capsicum chinense, hardly any heat.
6. OPHELIA (not bagged): capsicum annuum, orange, sweet snack pepper. Produces lots of small peppers. My favorite: very sweet and prolific in our cool climat. Pics: http://www.fruitlent.nl/verkoop/popu...n/ophelia.html

OTHER
1. PHYSALIS PUBESCENS
2. ACHOCHA 'LADY'S SLIPPERS'

Ann, how do you prepare the Achocha? I saw it mostly stuffed when I Googled it but am curious about preserving (canning as relish, pickling, etc). Thanks

You can eat it raw when it is very young. Tastes like a cucumber without water. Not my favorite way, since it has some bitterness to it. I prefer to eat it when it is fully grown. Indeed, stuffed. But more often I add it to a wok dish. It keeps its bite and is somehow like a green pepper.
I have never canned nor preserved. But I bet you can, just like cucamelons are picked. Be sure to remove the seeds because they are huge and non edible.

This is very interesting. Would it share a 10' long x 7' tall trellis with some beans or tomatoes, do you think, or take it over completely?

Well... In the beginning of the summer they are timid but when it starts getting warmer it will become a monster. I live in a cool climate.
Maybe you should try with only one, or only a couple? That way you can guide him where you want him to grow.

Yes, I am thinking to plant two together in a spot where they can run on the ground if necessary, after climbing up and down the 7' trellis. I'll give them 4' to 5' of width and see what happens.

They're on my wishlist. Thank you for sharing them!

I just found this recipe. A quiche filled with achocha, leeks and corn. Looks delicious, certainly the crust. I would use eggs instead of cornstarch.

Any special treatment for germinating achocha seed? It is very odd looking, sort of like little jig saw puzzle pieces.
