This is an old heirloom from the south . Years ago ,when I was involved in the Seed Savers Exchange ,I grew it and planted the very old seed again last spring. Luckily ,a plant came up and we managed to rescue this wonderful tomato. Our turkeys also really appreciated them too , hopping off the ground to get a bite!
We have added it to our favorite heirloom tomato collection and think you will like it too. It is an indeterminate and produces nice, large tomatoes that have that wonderful full heirloom taste.

All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds . The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
