What are you planning to plant in 2012? I've been pouring over catalogs and websites for new varieties to try.
Need to grow out 1000 plants for Master Gardener sale and 20 for my own use.

It is too early to think about tomatoes.
I just received seeds from a swap.
Now to decide which ones to grow.
Mine will lean towards the short season and cold tolerant varieties.
Glacier
Siletz
Cougar Red
Rocket Red
but then I also want to do Double Rich, Caro Rich and Healthkick.

Too many tomato varieties and not enough time or space!

wow Paul, thats a big order!!!
Just like Caroline, I've just received some new varieties from a seed swap too & not sure which are first in line to grow next year. Here's what I have.

Absinthe
Aussie
Belarus Orange
Black Ethiopian
Blue Ridge mountain
Cougar red vine
Dagma's Perfection
Earl's Faux
Early Red Saladette
Gallinaro
Great White
Kellogg's Breakfast
San Marzano (I will be growing these for sure)
Zogola

Then there's one that I have no idea what it says.... maybe Nyasas? I've tried many ways but can't come up with a tomato variety online?? but I still need to look up most of these, only a couple of them are familiar to me.

I'll probably grow Black Cherry again. they are really tasty and prolific, and continue producing until frost.

I found my UNK tomatoes, it was spelled wrong on the pack, should be : Nyagous, (Solanum lycopersicum) described by SSE as a great black tomato that is virtually blemish-free. Baseball-sized fruits are borne in clusters of up to six fruits, very productive. Excellent full flavor, great for markets. Indeterminate, 80 days from transplant.

I just received some toamto seeds from Heather in Calgary. I couldn't find these online, all sent by Gary Handova. I'll list them here with his comments from the pokt label.

Has anyone heard of these?

Jogodka - - OP small early cool tolerant
Faberge - - OP, early, egg-shaped
Burzen Amber - - OP, Early, smallish

I can't get into Tatania's Tomatobase since she added the ":88" in the URL. However, usually Google returns a hit if she lists a variety.

Here is my candidate for wierdest tomato variety name:

'Early Ssusabakus aliana' - - - a little bigger than a cherry - -
from Bob Loy - - - RJ_Hythloday

I also like the names of some of the Russian varieties:
'Nikolayev' Yellow Cherry Tomato
'Kardinal Tshyornyi' Dark Tomato (translates as "Cardinal Black")
'Bushy Charbarovsky' Tomato

No, I meant "that's a good name".

BTW, I spelled one wrong: 'Jadoka' is right, not "Jodoka".

The only definition I found for "Jodoka" is hopefully NOT what the developer of the tomato cultivar was thinking of!

from the Urban Dictionary:

jogodka

when a man begins desperately looking for booty after an emotional breakup and a night of heavy drinking

as in:

"Dude, he went jogodka after that fifth of vodka with your ex last night."
