    I'm in - hoping to have a 2nd variety - maybe Homosa (another HSL) - if they ripen in time - or Nellie's Unknown Black, which I may pick tomorrow.

    No SP....don’t panic! One is fine.
    One small Tom though should be enough for the whole circle - it’s just the real big ones
    Have few seeds.

    Don’t worry - this is supposed to be fun.
    Once you’ve done it once though you will have the bug

    Iím saving Lima korai,Lukullus,pendulina,zlatava,aranyalma,Cyrilís choice & moskowsi ultra skorospelyi. Some of them were to renew some old varieties & I donít know how to send them in? Iím also saving nectar rose,cream sausage,black cherry,peacevine cherry,orange banana & black icicle to grow next year but some of these have been in the circle recently so I might keep them unless anyone wants some? Hope everyoneís plants are doing well!

    How is everyone else doing on the saving front?
    These look beautiful Scarlet. Do they taste good too?

    I am very impressed with your list.
    Going to settle down with a coffee later and google them all to find out more about them.
    Black icicle is a wonderful name!

    The Tomato Seed Circle 2018-2018-08-19-seed-saving.jpg

    I was going to look for this thread to see how many packet we are going to need and I started fermenting the seeds yesterday from Red Robin, Balconi Red, Micro Tom, Rapunzel, happy to submit two of these but I think one has to be the Micro Tom which is a very small and impressive plant and can be grown in a pot on the kitchen window cill, I was really impressed that such a small plant can yield so many tomatoes.

    Not for the seed circle but I'm also saving the next generation of Non F1 Crimson Crush from the original plant which grow so prolifically every year, and so far appear to have kept the Blight Resistance and the next generation of a TESCO Tomato called Vitarino that again has performed a lot better than some of the other toms I have grown.

    Can we start assigning varieties to the names on the first page?
