Nan, I've just been in touch with Ilex/Paco in Spain, and listed your Ramalett ones for him, and I thought I was right when I told him I thought those were all de colgars, and here's how he replied.

(Ramallet is the name used in Mallorca for "de colgar" tomatoes. They have over 200 varieties in the island.)

So not rare at all.

Do you know what's different about de Colgar varieties? When there was no refrigeration available, they were developed over 100's of years to be harvested when green and hung on rafters where it was cool to let them slowly ripen.

I wouldn't say they are tasty, but they sure are interesting, that's for sure, as part of the tomato history of mainly Spain and also Italy.

Ones I've grown are

Colgar Papuo
100 en Pom LL-51

And I think one more I can't remember right now.

Some in Spain and Italy still grow them and do , not just b/c their ancestors did, but probably that's part of it, since they say they taste better if spread on hard bread with olive oil.

Feuerwerk
Brandywine
Burpee Supersteak
Cherokee Purple
Yellow Pear
Red Robin
"Mystery Orange"
"Kashi"

The mystery orange is from a seed exchange. The person with whom I traded got it as an oddball in a packet that was supposed to be Orange Wellington. It turned out potato-leafed and she said it was tastier; she grows it every year.

The Kashi tomato is from a packet handed out by Kashi, purveyors of cereal and granola. It's simply labeled, "tomato." Hey, I got nothin' to lose.
