Just saw this, thanks! He is getting around better now than he has in a long time. Two weeks tomorrow since the surgery, and he is already doing so much better!

To make it easier I am posting a list of what I sent in. This way Gary can copy and paste if he does make a master list.

Tomatoes:
Blush
Brad's Atomic Grape
Buckeye State
Copia
Costoluto Genovese Brokenbar
Early Cascade
Elgin Pink
Eva Purple Ball
GIrl Girl's Wierd Thing
Goldman's Italian American
Green Zebra Cherry

Jaune Flamme
Jersey Devil
Maglia Rosa *
Moon Glow
Pink Princess
Porter Charles Herring Strain
Rebel Alliance
Sgt. Peppers
Speckled Roman

Wild Red Tomatoes
(I picked these myself on my October trip to Ecuador)
These are a current type tomato, not at all that tasty, used mainly for breeding as they are resistant to many diseases.

Peppers
Arroz con Pollo*
Biquinho Red
Bolsa De Dulce
Datil Sweet*
Peppadew African Strain
Pimente D'Espelette*
Thai Chili

Other:
Mexican sour gherkin (AKA mouse melons)

It's a shame you write it today. I would certainly like Costoluto Genovese Brokenbar.

Vladimir, I still have to contact someone about the Reinhard Green Heart you mentioned above.

And of course I do have the following that I promised you.

Rosa de Zarautz
Negro de Olmeda

And will send them in plenty of time for you to sow seeds.

Just curious and now asking anyone who reads this post...how do you know that the tomato seeds that you send in are correct for the variety.

Do you bag blossoms,use geographic isolation, etc.

Wait!!!!! I think I know the answer to that since Gary starts another thread asking folks to report any seeds, I'm talking here only about tomato seeds, that were wrong for the variety.

So I know very well the answer to the above.

Yes, each year I read this thread, and I used to think I was helping by correcting spellings of varieties,but I haven't done that in many years.

And I always read the wrong varieties thread as well,since there always are some interesting remarks there,such as (i'm making this up now);

Gary, do you know who sent in the seeds for the variety Dead Leaves and I ask since it wasn't what it was supposed to be, but I really liked it.

And then say

Can anyone here tell me what I need to do to get what I want? And someone will come along and tell that person what to do and the person will say WHAT,it could take 6- 10 years to get what I want. OK forget it.

Carolyn

For five years now, I have kept the Spanish varieties Gallego, Zamorano, Salobre, Fresa, Rosa Aragon, Rosa Sierra Aracena and Ramallet Bombeta. I send to MMMM the seeds which I use myself. Rubinka and Jahodo are seeds purchased directly from Moravoseed and SEMO. Seeds Sasha Altai, Sarayev Shtambovyi and Sarayev Gruntovyi are from fruits from cold bed (the flowers were pollinated at a time when no insects did not fly for.

Other than the micro-dwarf varieties I grow indoors year-round, all of the seeds I send are from bagged/tagged blossoms from varieties that are true-to-type; my packets are labeled "bagged." There are lots and lots of bees here.


I did get an interesting RL Brandywine Sudduth's cross from the swap a couple of years ago. The tomatoes from that plant tasted divine, and the plant was super-healthy. I'm now trying to develop two different new varieties from it (one PL, one RL). The small, early, PL pink beefsteak seems like the more promising one, at least for my climate. The RL one has been throwing pink and purple saladettes that aren't particularly early, but they're beautiful.

Tormato, Now that I see that someone has sent in Brad's Atomic Grape can you add it to my wish list?

For the 2019/2020 spoilers list, I should grow Yellow Riesentraube and some Litchi too.

Tormato, if you don't mind, I will send in a SASE for a few seeds of tomatoes like the ones I wrote about above. I need to start seeds on Valentines day.

Wrong word ^ by Valentines day - not on it.
