RE: Trade?

Hi, opabinia51
Border restrictions? Thats only if your shipping soil! I have shipped plants bare root and seeds to Cacada as well as received the same from Canada. The only restrictions are that no soil is to be shipped due to soil born organisms. So if you want to trade seeds, or receive seeds in a SASBE just ask:)

Thanks, farmerted361:)

Unfortunately, the Canada/US border does not allow the trade of seed. I have already tried doing a seed trade with a member from the US.

Europe and North America seem to be fine about seed trading but, not within North America.

hi e/1 wow sounds like a great bunch of seeds! Im not sure i understand the Indeterminate, and determanite thing on tomatoes someone tried to explain it to me and I just didn't get it. But if I buy some heirloom tomatoes will it say on the package if it is determanite ir indeterminite? Not that it matters because I don't understand it , was just wondering for in the future when I do understand it..
I have no clue what I'm doing and what you just said, You may have to explain more than once. Im new can ya tell?? :)

Determinate -- you get a whole bunch of tomatoes at once (good for canning, etc).

Indeterminate -- tomatoes develop and ripen over a long period of time (good for eating tomatoes all summer).

i could have sworn that determinate meant that it will grow only a short size and that indeterminate has an indeterminate growth so it would need to be staked.

Indeterminates do usually get taller, and they definitely do need to be staked. But that's not where the name comes from; the name refers to the fruiting habits of the plant. Also, I've discovered that my determinates fall over from the weight of fruit if I don't stake them.

According to one source I found (https://monticellostore.stores.yahoo.net/600066.html), the Mortgage Lifter is an indeterminate heirloom. I've not grown them, so I can't swear to that.

Mortgage Lifter is an indeterminant big ol plant with big ol tomatoes.


Determinants have a genetic mutation causing them to put out flower clusters from the growth tip of the stems and branches, pretty much stopping further growth in height- do not prune determinants. They can be 5 ft tall plants, but most are 3-4 ft down to the 1 ft tall minis. Although they can put out new growing tips as suckers the plants get so loaded down with fruit all once that there is not much energy left for growth, but you can get a second small batch of fruit late in the season sometimes.

Dwarf plants are short but indeterminant, with flower trusses coming out at branch points. They have a genetic mutation to be short, and have characteristic rugose/rough foliage. A few can be 5 ft, but most are 2-4ft. They are fairly rare.

I doubt you'll get a reply on this one. The original post is probably a necro- it's from 2006.
