and from cross country nurseries, i ordered tomatoes: long-keeper (can keep four months), an olpaka (for sauces), black cherry (for drying), stupice (for early & red), sungold (for fresh and small) and green zebra (for salsa and fresh eating). i also ordered peppers: ancho villa hybrid (prolific, for mole), lilac hybrid (white to purple to red, bell), grenada seasoning (mild habanero type), quadrato d'asti giallo (sweet bell, italian, yellow to red). also eggplants, little fingers (slender) and lao purple stripe (round and small three inch diameter).
