|One supplier says their seeds are from 2006 to 2012.|
And I am wondering if tomato seeds are good for that long?
I wonder if they test the germination rate every year?

|I understand that tomato seeds have 10 years of high viability storage and at 15 years, 50% viability though they say those take longer to germinate. If you want to store them truly long-term (more than 10 years) then you might want to freeze them in a well-sealed glass. |

|I went on a big seed saving binge back in 2001. Last year I germinated many varieties from that stash and didn't notice any germination issues at all.|

|Okay, that is good to know.|
I'll keep my tomato seed stash.

|Here's a link that I had bookmarked for a few years, that lists out the longevity for many veggies & flowers|
