	I mentioned the new (to the USA) Caspian Pink tomato a while ago. 
There is an excellent article in the February issue of National 
Gardening Magazine about the seed business and it tells the story of 
Caspian Pink from 1992 when it was discovered near the Caspian Sea to 

	Seminis Garden, the discoverer, did not produce enough seed to sell 
to all of their customers, so they gave an exclusive for 1999 to R.H 
Shumway Seeds. Caspian Pink is listed for sale in the Shumway catalog 
and will probably be listed in their Totally Tomatoes catalog when it 
comes out.

	National Gardening has a lot of articles on tomatoes at their 
website at: http://www.garden.org
