The Original Abe Lincoln Tomato: This wonderful old heirloom was shared with us by Diann Dirks - The Garden Lady of Georgia (Her gardening blog can be found at www.thegardenladyofga. wordpress.com). Diann is a seed saver and seed sharer at heart and received this variety from a gentleman she had struck up a conversation with one day while pumping gas. She writes “A man (in his 80’s?) and I got to talking while pumping gas and I told him I collected seeds. He said he grew the original Abe Lincoln tomato--not the ones that were later sold but from the 1923 seed catalog.” Released by H.W. Buckbees in 1923, this meaty variety has incredible thick flesh with a tiny seed core and great old-fashioned tomato flavor. Vines are indeterminate with medium to large red fruit. Vines in our 2016 trial here in South Missouri were not excessively vigorous but yielded well nonetheless and with no apparent sunburning. Limited supply.

What are the pros? Large meaty, good all round

What are the cons? Slow to produce

Review:

30 years ago I was given a few of these plants for my garden. For the next 20 years I saved seeds and started them. Sadly about 10 years ago I lost all of my starts and had even used up the emergency seeds I saved for just that kind of loss. I was thrilled to find them again in your catalog and can hardly wait to have them again! Sometimes when canning one tomato would fill a quart jar. My largest one weighed in at 3lbs.11oz!

Review:

We've grown a few Abe Lincoln tomato plants each year for many years and love the real tomato flavor. They are perfect for a sandwich or to eat like an apple. Mild flavor and good for canning as well.
