Yes please. Count me in. I have seeds of lots of varieties. The ones I have that might interest
Teton de Venus: large, very sweet, solid sweet (with min. cavity, seeds or gel) heart-shaped fruit,vigorous plants (with droopy leaves and lots of yellow glands) best grown in a greenhouse.
(Japanese) Black Trifele: I reckon this has the best taste. Pear-shaped, variable size, 'black' fruit with a gorgeous complex flavour, very juicy, easy to peel skin off when raw, late maturing but can be grown outdoors with an early start.
Potentially lots of other varieties in open packets that I could chuck into a swap. Also home saved seed of around 20 other varieties.
I am up for this idea too, I'm currently working out which varieties to try this year but will definitely grow:
Sungold (have seeds already and will swap)
Suncherry (have seeds already and will swap)
Golden Crown (have seeds already and will swap)
Crimson Crush (have seeds already and will swap)
New Girl F1 (have seeds already and will swap)
Steak Sandwich - (need to buy)
Floridity (need to buy)
Black Cherry (need to buy)
I'd be interested in some of yours @Cinnamon
I don't grow a huge variety anymore but happy to send seeds of Grosse Italienne (huge, nearly seedless beefsteak) and Coeur de Boeuf (large, pinkish-red, heart-shaped fruit. Sweet, few seeds and peels well raw), to anyone that wants some.
I’ve just ordered black cherry 100 seeds, Black Krim 25 seeds, Black Russian 50 seeds. Won’t need all those so glad to put surplus in a seed swap.
I'm totally up for participating in a seed swap, but I'd be grateful if someone else would take up the seed swap idea again, however specialised they choose to make it.
Amazing Tomato pic! I would have it in my garden.
Has anyone got spare seeds of Manx Marvel? That's the one I'm most keen to get my grubby mitts on! Please PM me if you are interested in swapping. I've got seeds from the above list to swap, this year's grow list (below) and others such as Chadwick Cherry. Let me know what you're interested in by PM.

You're better off with real Tomatoes, Lucy!!
I would be interested in blight resistance tomatoes list . found a retailer offering many non f1 blight resistance varieties @25 seeds for pack at very lower price. if anyone interested we can share ,
Ok, I have 1 packet left of "Big Zak", mine are sown for this year and aside from Zigs, I know of no one else growing them here in the UK. I'll happily sow some more and make them available at "Shineyland" (if open this year).?
Oh, it's open again, Vince, on Saturday, 26th May.............and your seat is reserved
I better get sowing then?
Sowing Carol, NOT sewing!
Will "M" be there to make the tea and sarnies?
We will have to wait and see, Vince, otherwise Ziggy might want to make a few Curry Sandwiches
