1. Be sure to grow the varieties themselves - no sharing (don't forget - these are being bred to grow very well in 5 gallon containers and top out at 3-4 feet tall!)
2. Report back to me by email what they produced once you have ripe fruit - and work out a chance to provide me with a ripe tomato or two at the appropriate time for seed saving. If you wish, I'd love reports during the season - pics are always great!
3. Be honest in terms of what you think of them - we are working to get great new tomatoes into seed catalogs...but we don't need to put our efforts into mediocre or terrible tomatoes, which are always possible!
Here's the process - let's work out a time either between tomorrow and Friday, or from Sunday May 13 onward, for you to come over and get your seedlings. I prefer to work through email - firstname.lastname@example.org - for communication, directions, timing, etc.
You can choose from the following types:
medium large purple fruit
medium purple fruit with stripes
white cherry tomato fruit
medium to large orange fruit
medium to large yellow fruit with red swirls
large pink fruit with the flavor of Brandywine
medium large pink fruit
medium delicious yellow fruit
medium red fruit
medium small brownish fruit with green stripes
pink cherry tomatoes
yellow cherry tomatoes
large yellow fruit
pink heart shaped fruit
pale yellow heart shaped fruit

medium green when ripe fruit
medium large chocolate colored fruit
medium large green fruit with purple striping
medium red fruit with orange striping
medium yellow fruit with pink striping
medium ivory fruit
medium to large pale orange fruit
If you let me know which color or colors you would like to try, I can pick out the varieties for you and get them ready - it only takes me a minute to separate out a transplant for you.
There is more information on what I am looking for locally for volunteer help here.
There are actually at least 50 new named varieties amongst the different colors above! You can be adventurous, or conservative.
Anyway - we have plants in need of homes - and the excitement of discovery, and making a contribution, and perhaps getting your name in a seed catalog as a contributor. The plants are free. This is fun stuff......
Let the emails begin!
