Thank you very much for your help. Yes, that's the tomato. According to the description, it comes from Poland.
I've sent an email, trying to use the "DT Seed Ordering Shortcut" method, but haven't heard anything yet. It has just been a day, but I think I'll order the Debbie seeds as a single order, just to make sure I get them. I'll keep you posted.

Edited to add, well got them ordered. Kinda a hard site to navigate, especially if you are ordering more than a few seeds. He does say it may take several days to respond to an email. But Debbie is ordered!

I made what appears to be a valuable discovery. I packed up some super hot pepper seeds last night, quite a lot of them, and that tends to give me quite a burn for awhile. Even just the small about of contact that goes with counting seeds. But I also washed my hair last night (which is down to my waist so it does take some time) and realized afterward - no more burning fingers. I think shampoo might be an effective antidote.

Received an email this morning from Dale, my original email went into his spam folder, which he doesn't check often enough he said. I paid and the order should ship this weekend. When I get it, I'll contact @Artorius for mailing information. I did order a few (20) other tomato varieties.

I'm so happy that, with a single exception, every pepper variety I planted from Atlantic Seeds has sprouted. I didn't think that would happen because there were about 14 of them and mostly hots. The first ones germinated at about a week and the rest took many weeks longer. I think I had given up on the last 4, since there seemed like no sign of life for so long. I'm glad I let them be and waited. Now, if only the chiltepin would sprout. 'Murupi White' was the last one - I saw the first little neck curve rise up from the soil today. Hope springs eternal for sure. 🕊️

The only hot pepper we use/like are the chiltepin’s and keep a quantity of fresh and dried berries in the freezer. These are at least 15 years old so i was somewhat apprehensive about growing a few this year. I soaked the seed overnight and planted them on 1-25.
Today i moved the 3 i saved into a 10 Gal pot, which will go to the greenhouse in a month.

How long did it take them to sprout?

I was surprised to have some up within a week. I soaked and planted roughly 15 seeds with the idea of saving 6. Then further culled to these 3.
We first discovered them while living in S.Texas. Turkeys liked them real well.
They made a great hot salsa when using all fresh ingredients, bow days we’ll crunch up 2 of the peppers into a Dutch oven full of chili And that’s about all a couple old folks can stand!

That's rather amazing! I've tried these chiltepins several times and have never gotten a single seed to sprout, even from a new pack. Last year, I planted the entire packet I bought. Not one, again. I thought I was losing my mind to buy yet another pack this year but these ones look like chocolate nibs and well, chocolate 🥰

Thank you Jack. So I'm waiting for PM. I will gladly send you the seeds of my tomatoes for exchange. Recently, I sent the seeds of tomatoes and cucumbers to Connecticut and they arrived without problems.
