2018 Lucky Dip
Product ID: 2018lucky
Every year we sit at the table and cut up tomatoes for storage in bottles or for sun drying. As we cut them we get lots of excess seeds which we dry out and keep for future years.
This is actually the best product in the cart. It would cost a lot of money to be able to try out this many heirloom seeds. The only problem is that you won't know what they are called.
The names of tomatoes below are the names that I found on email receipts from seed companies where I had bought seeds. I grew the seeds and their seeds have ended up in the lucky dip. There are many more than stated here. Tomatoes should remain viable for at least 5 or 6 years so the germination rate will not be as good as 2020 seeds but most of them should germinate.
FATHER FROST, FIRST IN THE FIELD, INDIGO ROSE, LEGEND, AILSA CRAIG, BLACK RUSSIAN, BRANDYWINE ,GLACIER, GOLDEN SUNRISE, MONEYMAKER, ABOUT 3 POMODORO ITALIAN TOMATOES, MARMANDE, TIGARELLA, MUCHA MIEL, SIMON, PURPLE CALABASH, KORAL RANIKHET, RAFF, GARDENER'S DELIGHT, SAN MARZANO, BEEFSTEAK PLUS MANY MORE. We can't guarantee that all of these will be in all packets.
The lucky dip represents about 35 different types of tomatoes. I normally only grow heirloom varieties and seeds I have obtained from neighbors or seed swaps. Almost all types of tomatoes are represented, from cherry to beefsteak and everything in between. There are even some yellow tomatoes and stripy ones I also emptied any old packets of heirloom tomatoes which I have bought in the last 5 years or so.
The idea is that you sow them and grow them. In a process of random selection you decide which tomatoes you like best and you can save the seeds and grow more of that variety the year afterwards. I always plant 20 or 30 random tomatoes.
I can't guarantee exactly which varieties they are but you will be certain to get many different types of tomatoes.
