Default Punky Pear

I’m looking for info on this, too.

Just now sorting through this massive package of seeds. I’ve never seen so many seeds in my life! Thank you, Tormato!!! I just haven’t had a chance to express my gratitude until now. Started a new job a few weeks ago.

Big Brandy F1

Big Brandy F1 is taking it's sweet time germinating. I've started it in two cells and both are far behind the rest of the pack. Is anyone else experiencing this being a slow poke to germinate?

It was not slow to germinate for me. I do use a heat mat, though.

That's a nice, tasty tomato.

Thanks, Nan. I have one of two up on each cell now. that's all the Big Brandy F1 I need. They were slower than the surrounding seeds for some unknown reason. It may have something to do with heat sensitivity.

I panicked when nothing germinated from some older seed and re-started the entire packet of some first round choices OP using Carolyn's N soak method. Did great, and they are kept warm, possibly to a fault. My heat mat was at 85 with towels over the plastic cover and I get to 80 on top of the DVD player with a few stadium blankets on top of the set up.

Its really hot in the window with the sun shining on the newly germinated seedlings and they are looking unusually tall and thin as a result. Due to my former work schedule, I am used to starting tomatoes about a month earlier when the sun isn't as strong. I started potting up today., a week earlier than usual at this stage.

I hope you'll keep us updated. Be sure and save seeds if possible.

Thank you MrBig46. I had to look up Cyrillic, nice to understand it is a language. Then read Carolyn's old thread on languages and translations. Was really interesting.

Finally got through the mountain of seeds I received. Thank you Tormato!!
Looking for info on the following seeds:
George O’Brien. Only info I could find was it is either a paste or oxheart type, either red or pink and was about 3 to 6oz.
Coeur di Bue - could not find any info. Could this possibly be Cuor di Bue?
Fiaschetto- I did see a couple of varieties but not just Fiaschetto
Dwarf Cherokee Tiger
Any information would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you, Karen

Nan's right, could be either one. So either a pear shaped red paste (Cuore) or a pink heart (Cuor).

I can't read this luffah variety. Or maybe it is a participant's name.

Coeur di Bue...
Maybe a cross between a cœur de bœuf and a cuore de Bue ? ;-) No, seriously, maybe a mistake. A cœur de bœuf / cuore de Bue could be heart shapen but here every large tomato is called 'Cœur de bœuf' in shops. Not a specific variety.

Brokenbar's Cost. Gen. - Assuming this is Costoluto Genovese
Beasl004, just going through some old posts and noticed that this had not been answered. I believe your assumption is correct and you have a very good sauce tomato there: from my Breeding for pastes thread -

But my sauce is Costoluto Genovese only. Nothing compares. A superior sauce tomato grown for generations for sauce and only sauce. Everything a sauce tomato should be. Over 35 years, I have probably grown well over a hundred and fifty varieties of sauce-type tomatoes (including hearts...) Those listed above are all I grow for sauce and drying (with drying being my preeminent
purpose.) Wyoming was a tough growing environment and these varieties took whatever the weather threw at them. It's easier in Mexico because just about any tomato grows well here.

Further info from BB is in this thread also. Now how to get some of those seeds down under...
