Default Cuba is the new trend.

Ever since the embargo has been relaxed(please no reflex interNAT responses).As Floridians we all have Cuban friends.And anyone who has contacts,now is the time to procure those hidden gems of long lost Seeds that have been isolated,have not been corrupted,imported from Russians occupying and intermingling with the local farming community.As we speak I have my own boots on the ground,have received some original Monti Cristo # 40 seeds.Also got lucky and have some puportedly some blacks,cherry and midsize.Too late for this season,will trial soon enough.Am on lookout for some original landrace peppers.

We traveled to Cuba in 2015. I brought home tomato seeds stuck to a paper napkin from my lunch. Grew them last year. A nice round, red tomato of good size, but not very tasty. Maybe the growing conditions in Cuba are a bit different than in Alaska? Ha!

Default Replicate the conditions a close as possible.

Not to bragg,I had the opportunity to visit the State of Alaska plenty of times.Wife will not let me buy land there.But I did snag on a trip there some seeds from the Matanuska Tundra and they were not tomato seeds.This was during the Vancouver Olympics.Today those little damsels (ALL OF THEM) look real nice in the morning sun.It takes a while to acclimate.
