Are you saving seeds from your harvest?

I save all my good tomato seeds.  Got my hands on a few WV63 tomato so I saved some and will try a few out this fall to see if they are successful.

Floyd, what are WV63 tomatoes?  I've never heard of them.  How do they taste?  Are they prone to splitting?

They are a medium size red tomato and are excellent slicers.  I got them from a member, haven't seen her on this forum for a while, and she sent me a few so I tried them that year and liked them!

Back them I was over whelmed with the seeds catalogs and all the different varieties so have been trying new stuff, different colors and types, so I never bothered to plan them again due to only having 2 boxes.

I like the WV63 for sandwiches but my wife picks the green for fried green tomatoes 

Still waiting to see them in a seed catalog but I think the only place you can get the seeds is from the WV agricultural department.  I will have to check that out again.

DH wants me to make fried green tomatoes with my Amish Pastes...  Yours sound a whole lot better.  I'll check the WV Ag Dept as well.

How acidy are they?  (He doesn't like the acid types - much prefers sweet!)

Thanks!

I never noticed them being overly acid.Seemed pretty mild.

Actually I have an orange one that is sweeter IMHO though.

Oh?  Do you know the name of it, Floyd?  

It's difficult reading thru the seed mags for non-acid types.  It's so subjective....

Thanks!
