Default Reading Carolyn's book

Went to the Library and checked out Carolyn's book 100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden.Looking through and reading up on some that I never heard of made me now want to obtain 3 varieties.I plan on starting my seeds the first week of April.I need to find these three Heirloom tomatoes.German Red Strawberry,Earl of Edgecombe and Druzba.I'm hoping I can get all three from one company.Any help would be much appreciated.

Assuming "German Strawberry" is the same as German Red Strawberry (I think it is), Solana seeds has all three. http://solanaseeds.netfirms.com/TomatoesD-L.html

Steve, I'm not so sure about that.

It seems to me that if it were German Red Strawberry it would have been listed that way,rather than just German Red,. which then gets us into trouble since there's also and Orange Strawberry,which someone changed to German Orange Strawberry, but the latter was a stray seed found in a packet of commercial Pineapple Seeds.

First, German Red Strawberry.

Here's what I'm talking about as to German Orange Strawberry.

Carolyn, here's my reasoning: first - Solana lists it as German Strawberry, not German Red. Secondly, I find very few sites that mention a variety called just German Strawberry, and ((thirdly) the sites that do list it do so mostly as a red. Last, the photos of ripe fruit look the same. Admittedly, Solana calls its German Strawberry red-pink and early, while Tatiana lists it as midseason, so there's room for doubt.
