    Yes please (for my sins)!

    Will be a lucky dip in terms of varieties, but I have 7 from Tomatoeden, Ruby from Realseeds, and one called Azoychka which I'm intrigued by, and 'De Barrao' from Victoriana.

    TomatoEden list is: Kozula132, Zabava, Raisin Vert, Glacial Zebra, Maglia Rosa, Cosmic Eclipse and Amethyst Jewel....

          Maglia Rosa is a cross of Blush x Zucchero. Determinate plant with Blush-shaped pink fruit.

          Ambrosia Red is a red cherry, one of the several open pollinated Ambrosia varieties bred from Sungold F1.

          The three Dwarfs are all part of the Dwarf Tomato Project. They grow to 3-4ft high and don't require pruning. Rosella Purple and Tasmanian Chocolate I grew last year but they got battered by winds outdoors and ending up snapping. The fruit set on both was really heavy so I'm making some small cages out of stock fencing, bamboo stakes just weren't enough. This year they'll be in the greenhouse. Rosella Purple is supposedly similar to Cherokee Purple, Tasmanian Chocolate comes from Paul Robeson and Arctic Rose from Black from Tula.

            Hello all, I'm in again this year if you don't mind me sending in seeds from tomatoes grown from those sent out in the 2019 swap?!
            I haven't made my mind up what ones yet, just soooooo much choice
            Will have at least 4 types to choose from when the time comes.

            Happy sowing everyone

                          Welcome TT... plenty of time to get your post count up to get into this seed swap. Hope you enjoy the threads.

                            To anyone still thinking about signing up:
                            My first lot of seeds received from last years swap have germinated, Red Robin, courtesy of Cadalot.

                            I am saving my other choices until a more "sensible" time to sow. Hopefully these ones will be my indoor early tomatoes growing happily on my kitchen windowsill.

                              Other than RRH I've decided on Nectar Rose, Rosella, Jaune Flamme, GardenPearl, Cornue des Andes and Kibitz.

                              So if anyone has a favourite out of those, please let me know

                                I'd love to join in with this I've never saved tomato seeds before. I've got a few varieties from wild boar farms which have just sprouted up so as long as I get some lovely tomatoes from them I'm happy to save and swap!
