have placed the amish paste and aurora plants in their final pots and inserted support cains, both varieties are about 10" tall now and bushy! the urbikany seem to be slower and are about 5/6" tall at the moment, so it will be another week or so before they go into their final pots, i am using 9" and 10" pots for growing these old varieties as i think they are better suited to pots than growbags, will grow all these plants in the green house, but will try one or two of the aurora and urbikany in pots in the garden to see how they deal with our summer

hi all, first entry in journal in over a year! i am growing a few old and rare varieties of tomato this year, i got the seeds from a company in wales that specialise in varieties that you wont find in today's seed catalogues, the 3 types of tomato are Ubrikany from the Ukraine, Aurora from Siberia and Amish paste from the USA, have got a fair bit of info on these on the net but was wondering has anyone grown or come across these varieties, would welcome any info, have germinated all 3 and have been quite successful, they are small packets of seed, about 20/25 seeds per pack, but i will save seed from them for next year, name of the company is The Real Seed Company, a great site well worth checking out, and any info would be welcome, regards dave....
