I need help identifying tomato seedlings


I am new to the forum and new to growing plants indoors from seeds. In yet another senior moment, I started Brandywine and Little Sweetie tomatoes on paper towels, got so many sprouts that I transferred them to every container I could find.... and got them mixed up. ( Sigh) One type has pointy hairy leaves and the other's leaves are more rounded. Which is which?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: I need help identifying tomato seedlings

I'm not finding Little Sweetie though there are Sweetie and Wild Sweetie. Both of these are Regular Leaf varieties so would have lobed true leaves. Maybe "Little" Sweetie is the same?

Brandywine is a Potato Leaf variety and would have shield shaped potato-like true leaves.

Re: I need help identifying tomato seedlings

If you have one potato leaf variety and one regular leaf, that makes it easy:
