Congrats and good luck with your seed site! The link isn't working because of the capital "S". Going there now to browse, but wanted to let you know asap.

Great site and I have some seeds I am interested in, but how do I know they will grow in my region? I am in hot and humid south coastal bend texas where fungal and bug problems exist year round.

Terry,

Enlighten me on this "Negrillo de Almoguera" variety I just ordered seeds on. Thoughts?

Hi Baize,
It's what is called a "Spanish Black" tomato. They are varieties that are from Spain that they call black but are not in the same catagory as what we call blacks. They are actually a brown/mahogany color but some (not all) have the green or different colored shoulders. Not as sweet as our blacks but worth trying for any serious collector or grower so you understand the difference. This particular one is from Almoguera and was so beautiful. Very firm texture and good taste. Hope that helps

Nice. I'm excited about putting some out next year. I've set my mind on about 50 varieties I'll be planting and then there are an additional ten that will fluctuate between now and then.
