Cherries and other small fruited varieties are always a great choice!

I think so, too! Cherries and saladettes did well in our terribly hot summer this year while the biggies (most of them) even refused to produce blossoms. Only VERY few (early ones) gave me some fruits.

Impressive list, Lotte! And quite a lot with German names, but I don't know all of them.

NarnianGarden and clara - yes they are always good, don't think they will fail ever.

And clara, yes many German ones, I have many wonderful German tradefriends you know....
I don't know many of my choosen ones too, but I have done a lot of homework, and they seem to be what I am searching for.But I could have made another list with just as many good ones too, it was a tough decision these ones.

Every year, it's a torture to choose what to grow... but a very pleasant torture, LOL!

Soon it is upon us - the season of choices!!

I will plan and re-plan my list for several months, and probably it won't have its final form before March... still waiting for the results from a couple of seed swaps..!

My list is finished, only it can grow longer, and only thing that will make it shorter is when something doesn't germinate.But then I just grab in my other seeds.

What an impressive list! Of course, you know we expect a comprehensive review at the end of the season.

And I have that list on my right right now and it starts with Alberto Shatters which I have grown and shatters just means it falls off the vine before getting ripe and shatters, meaning bounces off of what ever it is growing in,a small red.

Some of the next ones include

Rosalita

Verde Claro... are you growing the original or the one called Beyond Verde Claro with less seeds..both are from Tom Wagner.

It drove me crazy about Red Wolf,since I knew I'd grown it but finally found the description, I cut and pasted it and sent it to myself and that's where it sits right now.

All for now.

Carolyn

Thank Carolyn.Yes Tville was down, I use it a lot when searching.

Verde Claro is the only name labelled at the seeds, I don't know about the Beyond Verde Claro, but I know it is a Tom Wagner.

Red Wolf I only found informations here at Tville, about 2010 I think it was.

Here is my info about Red Wolf;

(Red Wolf
85 days - Indeterminate. An Abundant Acres introduction. Fruit were given to us by an amatuer grower in 2005. After growing this tomato for two years, we decided to offer it. To our knowledge it's not available anywhere else. Nearly seedless fruits can reach a pound, but more commonly run about 6 - 8 ounces. Juicy and delicious. An oxheart type.)

Carolyn, and yes I've grown it which is why I went crazy trying to find more information.

Thank you Carolyn, I know the feeling.I have the seeds from an american, an old very nice man, and I'm looking forward to grow this one, and by growing it making it more widely known.

Lotte, I said I'd be back and continue with my list, but I doubt it will be today. I know you aren't looking for seeds,rather just suggestions about the ones you listed since you already have those seeds

There is no hurry Carolyn, yes I have the seeds, I'll just wait for your comments, but there is really plenty of time.
