I liked Lucinda a lot. The flavor is very good and the striped GWR slicers sell surprisingly well at market. Customers seem to grasp that they are not unripe red tomatoes.

I couldn't directly answer Fred's picture of Lucinda,but he knows that I know he knows where his replacement seeds of Lucinda seeds came from.

I had offered it in a seed offer,seeds initially from Fred, so when he needed seeds for it I sent back all I had left.

I loved the carrot like foliage,Silvery Fir Tree is a parent,but for me the taste was too strong and no, I can't describe,for me,what too strong means.

I think the clearly yellow skin of Green Zebra and like varieties helps too.

Looks awesome Fred. I like the idea of a long keeper Artisan.

We have a kickstarter project that runs between now and next Thursday.

Basically it is these 13 varieties for $25

New: Fuego Verde, Fuego Rosa, Taste

Recent, still not widely known: Jazz, Orange Jazz, Marzano Fire

Winners at Brussels Tomato Festival: Lucky Tiger, Blush, Maglia Rosa

4 things we love (bred by others): Cherokee Purple, Captain Lucky, Cherry Roma and Rebel Yell.

Or pick 3 for $10

On another note, we are finally packing up the Marzano Fire/Orange Caprese seeds for our offer last spring. They will be going out, a few at a time over the next few weeks.
