Interesting site on seed storage. Is there a list anyone knows about of "dessicant tolerant" varieties?

FYI,, exact humidity and temp seem to be critical, but freezing may not be the ans.

Read a report that they found some seeds in an Egyptian tomb that were over 6,000 years old and were still viable.

How long did you want to keep your seeds?
