Rare Seed Offer

nordfyr315(5)October 9, 2011

Hello all,

Just thought I would share some seeds from two southwest Asian varieties.

9893, a strangely named Iraqi cultivar. A strong, vigorous and productive plant that produces large, deeply lobed, red fruit with a lot of gel and seeds. Taste is good but not spectacular in my opinion. I tend to favor a more fleshy tomato but someone else may greatly enjoy. Early producer.

Pomadoni: from Afghanistan. The one plant I had seemed to dislike the wet weather we had (yet again) in upstate NY this summer. Not surprising given its origin. Still, it produced a modestly sized, delicious and balanced fruit. Not especially productive but then again I got this plant in the ground late and pinched a lot of buds so that I could get a few fruit before frost. Early producer like 9893.

The deal: I have about 15 extra seeds from each variety so I will send 5 seeds to the first three people who respond in this thread asking for one or the other but not both seeds. I would like to extend this offer to as many people as possible so I am only offering one pack per taker. I would prefer to send to others who in turn save and freely share seeds with others but what you do with the seeds is up to you.

I wouldn't mind a few seeds of the Pomadoni. This year we had such a dry summer it might do well in Southern Colorado. Let me know what I need to do to get in touch with you and if I can share anything with you. Thanks.

Just email me here. Let me know what address you would like me to send the seeds to and I will get them in the mail as soon as they finish drying. Should be within the week.

I will pass on the deal since you are only sharing 15 of each, maybe next year they'll be more

Thanks for making this generous offer. I'd like to try growing Pomadoni here in SC.

nordfyr315's, If you still have one or both of these tomato varieties, I would love growing it and sharing it with others next season. Thank you for your kind offer!

Thanks to everyone who showed interest. I got quite a few direct-to-email inquiries and fulfilled as many requests as I could. I am now out of extra seeds but I expect to do the same thing next year except with more varieities.

Thank you Nordfyr315. You da man. I look foward to growing the hell out of them seeds. I am going to make those seeds my itch. I am going to use them there seeds. Once I am done with those seeds, each one of them will need professional therapy.

I am going to punch those seeds in the face,with sandy loam,and good,dry manure. Maybe I am going too far?

Seriously though, thank you.

Take care,
Travis
