I just received my package today, and just love the huge variety and seeing seeds from tomatoes I have never heard of. I always ask Gary to send me some unknown or unusual ones. I really got a kick out of these two labels!



Who has more info on them?

Speaking of misspellings, I wonder if the Scalone "paste" seeds I received are really Scatolone?

I think you could be right. "Scalone" sounds Italian but if you google it, even by adding the word "pomodoro" ("tomato" in Italian), you don't get any result.

My father used to grow the Scatolone and I didn't mind it. I ignored that the name of the variety comes from picking the tomato when pink and and storing it in a carton ("scatolone" in Italian) to ripen.

You always learn something from tomatoes

I got these seeds in my first MMMM swap. Would any of you know about these?

Accession PI 647466 99GI tomato - I found it's from Mexico, but that's all.

Accession PI 119215 tomato - It's from Venezuela

Any help would be appreciated! : )

Original seed was sourced from Wintersown in 2013, what I sent into MMMM was from this summer. IND, 75 DTM as stated on original label. Mine were later than that but I did get it into the ground rather late. I still got 7.5 lbs from my one plant, which I thought was pretty good! It has the droopy, wispy appearance of most hearts. Not stingy on seeds either. I don't know anything on the history or where the name originated. Here are my growing notes:
Rose de L'Omio: Productive heart, the critters seemed to like this one a lot. Ripens to a vibrant pink and has good flavor and creamy texture.

Well one looks like a smiley face without the eyes, and the other one looks like an eye. So if I grow them out, they might be known as Smiley and Evil Eye.

Unless I hear different.

I think it is this https://npgsweb.ars-grin.gov/gringlo...spx?id=1546927

Picture/description http://www.annapolisseeds.com/product-p/082.htm

The other PI 119215 is possibly a medium size tomato from Venezuela - collected in 1936. https://training.ars-grin.gov/gringl...spx?id=1131802 (Hmm, a medium tomato - could be one of thousands.)

Thank you... Thank you. Since I can't even pronounce Dagestanskiy, no wonder I didn't get the spelling right. Appreciate the info help.

I am almost positive I saw something about Deep Space ( didn't know it was supposed to have a 9 with it) here on TV but when I put Deep Space in the search box I didn't get anything. Maybe I'm thinking of a different tomato, but wonder if it wasn't one that had another name to start out with and it got changed. I don't think I have really grown a brown paste tomato before so it should be fun and interesting.

Thank you so much for the info and about the critters. I'll make sure I keep an extra eye on those plants. Plenty of natural food around for the critters they need to stay out of my crops or they gonna be out of here.

Great, now the only one I still need info on is Ludmilla.

Salt... I found this for Green Envy F1

http://www.thompson-morgan.com/veget...envy/tt38813TM

and Burpee has the Green Envy too.

Mojo F1 ... http://www.holmesseed.com/sweet-mojo-f1-tomato/

Ice cherry ... Looks like you might be right that it is Italian Ice cherry. Looks to be a good cherry to try. The only other thing I could find was White Ice cherry which looks like it the same as the Italian Ice only they calling it white as when they turn white they edible.

I won't divulge the surprise but that looks like my handwriting. Did they come in a little pink envelope bundle? Definitely worth a grow out if they are what I think!

Has anyone identified a Tormato exclusive this year?

http://tomatoville.com/showthread.ph...light=ludmilla

Possibly my submission, but unsure which Ludmilla. It was quite a hefty size fruit , and very prolific. It looks like Burpee Supersauce but tastes waaay better!

I got a Rozella 16' pack and was wondering which Rozzella it is? Rozella Crimson or Rozella Purple?

I also received a package labeled EPB. I'm guessing it's Eva Purple Ball?

No pink bundle, just these two, but thanks to your PM, the mystery is solved. Of course some more mysteries still remain.
