Caspian Pink was in trials this year. It will be introduced by 
Seminis Seed in 1999 or 2000 and should be available from  most of 
the major seed catalog companies.

Seminis is arguably the largest HYBRIDZER of tomato, pepper and other 
veggie seeds in the world, but this is an open pollinated variety. To 
help dispel the myth that hybridizers are plotting to take over the 
world's seed supplies, Seminis still sells Brandywine Tomato 1885, 
Old Homestead (Kentucky Wonder) Pole Bean 1864, Black Seeded Simpson 
Lettuce Pre-1880 and Alderman Pea 1878.

Here's an interesting Tomato family web site:
