    There are a few hybrid San Marzanos, but they have something added to the name such as SM Lungo or SM Follia If it is just San Marzano it is not a hybrid.

    There is even a mini SM that's an f1 but it is actually named Ravello
    RAVELLO F1 SEEDS (TOMATO)

    I hope that somebody isn't using San Marzano for something else, its a well established name.
    I've just checked my packet from Kings, and F1 is not mentioned.

    I'm not sure where I saw it now, but I remember being surprised when I saw it listed as F1, could have just been a google.

    But obviously I was momentarily bewildered when writing that post.

    No pressure, register your interest - and the tomatoes you fancy saving if you know what you are going to grow

    #things don't often go to plan while growing so you can change your mind on what varieties you are saving. Remember there's loads of seeds in a cherry Tom, so you only have to save one or two but you do have to label them!

    I potted on my seedlings yesterday into 7cm pots. 120 plants that will ultimately become the 36 I'm growing and others to share amongst the family.

    One thing of interest, for fun, I'm growing F2 hybrids from Mountain Magic and I've got an equal split of Potato Leafed and Normal Leafed varieties. I've found a release note from North Carolina Agricultural Research Centre for Mountain Magic but its impossible to know whether either of the parents are potato leafed.

    I've not sown any of my Tomatoes as yet!

    But will make it my priority next week once I get the remaining chilli plants moved on and in no more need for the lights!

    Scarlet, stick my first seed saving variety down as "Black Krim" unsure yet what the second variety will be, but will keep you posted, and I promise to get these remaining "Rosella" seeds out to you next week! Honest!
