Lol thanks Tormato. I search for Rosella instead of Rozella.

Hopefully this isn't just for tomatoes because I have no idea what type of beans these are and it is driving me nuts. Any ideas? I tried looking up Penny Rile/Rite etc and nadda.

The GRIN database has sod-all about the first one, except a pic of a frond and that it's from "southern Mexico".

The second was collected in Venezuela in 1936. No pic, but follow the Detailed Accession Observation link down near the bottom for a detailed description.

But surely someone has grown these recently!

Edit: Just saw Robert's second post. Saltie, how did you get from the accession number to the Annapolis Seed page?? That looks like a very interesting tomato!

No, not the same at all. Trinidad Perfume is a heatless, excellent tasting pepper, bright yellow with tendencies toward Scotch Bonnet shaped pods.

DM, on your first link - look down at the narrative - it says Chiapis Wild Tomato. Google that and it wants to correct it as Chiapas. After looking it up Chiapas is a state in Mexico. I looked up both anyway, and they're the same tomato.

Ah! So it does. You have better eyes than I do, Gunga Din. (Actually, I saw it but didn't connect it as a name.)

You gonna grow it this year?

Yes, it is being planted in cell #1 in my seed tray that is sitting beside me. I just filled the cells with starting mix.

Geez, it's getting to be that time, isn't it? I gotta go get my lights out of storage.

Wait, isn't this still a bit early for tomatoes?

Well, I am thrilled beyond belief to have received more colors, shapes, and sizes (from micro-dwarf to tree-sized) of tomato than I knew existed before joining the swap. I am, however, a bit stumped by one packet containing a small, fluorescent pink, handwritten label reading "PI 120-256 '13 (Tribbles)."

A search of Tatiana's Tomatobase was fruitless (pun intended). A search of the Web tells me that the number is a USDA accession number, that the original specimen was collected at the bazaar in Urfa, Turkey in 1936, and that it's a variety thought to have some cold tolerance and a quick germination time. The tomato is described as "fasciated," "oblate," and as having "more than five locules." Source: https://npgsweb.ars-grin.gov/gringlo...l.aspx?1132021

I'm thinking it must look something like the Costoluto varieties from Italy. Does anyone know more? Is it red? Will it improve my ability to cook Turkish food? (I LOVE Turkish food.)

Tribbles is a category in the swap that these seeds were in. Tribbles - heavily ribbed, pleated, ridged, scalloped, fluted,...
The letters and numbers are the working name perhaps and '13 is the year grown.

Thanks for that; I think I recognize the handwriting on the label now, after poring over all of the packets (and the suggested grow-list for next year)... I'll send a PM to the suspected contributor and ask for further info.

Any additional info on the flower seeds "Lilly"? Color, type, growth habit, sun/shade preference, anything? Thanks.
Found all my tomato questions already answered in this thread!
