    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
    V.P.
    The thing I grow best are very large slugs!
