Sorting Tomato Seeds

What an exciting half hour I put in today, sorting through the seed boxes and deciding what I may or may not grow in the way of tomato seedlings for 2008/9. Top of the list are my two Romanian varieties like last years favourite Nicoleta and the untried Crisana which I hope is as good as I've heard. Then an orange tomato, never grown here in Oz before so I hope it too does well for me. Then there are at least four black varieties out for selection along with a purple and two greens.

Some Italian varieties will make the list, even a Grosse Lisse thanks to a friend who gave me the seed, which comes from a 152 year association with one family. The list goes on but will be trimmed considerably in the next week or so.
