I have nothing to trade. Which is a bummer. Unless you need eggs.

Mon - I've got 1 too many wives. Will trade for a few cherry seeds :lol:.

What sort of cherries do you have? I've got a few types here, including the little yellow broad ripple currents that just come up everywhere.

the best ones by far have been the golden sunrise cherries, really orange, very rich flavour and also a cross pollenated one I created myself :wink: which was a cross between yellow romas which were tasteless and red cherries, which turned out to be the most amazing little mini romas. They were yielding over 100 fruit per truss, at one stage the plant had over 800 fruit on it.

How do you stop tomatoes from cross pollenating?

Is there a distance they must be planted form each other or do most people just stick with the one variety per season to keep the phenotype of the seeds uniform?

If you want them true to type then only plant one. Or manually pollenate them before the bees get to them.

Tomato growing sites I used to visit suggested that you buy small cloth bags to bag the flowers before they open, then you manually pollinate and keep the flowers covered till fruit just start to form. Guaranteed no cross pollination then.
