26.5 ounce Cabin Tomato

WOW!  I have never grown such big fruits from this variety before!  If you just joined this web site, let me fill you in.  I have been saving seeds from “Cabin” tomatoes and regrowing them for the last few years.  The plants seem really disease resistant, and I love the taste!

I have saved one batch of seeds, which was about the amount that covered a small dinner plate.  Those are in the freezer now, and will be tested for viability soon.

I have a second batch of seeds fermenting in a quart jar right now, and that should provide another few hundred seeds.

I plan to send out up to 50 (give or take) envelopes of seeds for this variety of tomato to folks willing to send in a picture of their efforts to grow it in 2013, and who will try to save seeds for the next season.

Some have already sent me their addresses (thank you!), and I hope to collect a few more.

    I would LOVE some seeds! I’d be happy to post our results. Those are just beautiful! Let me know if I can send you my address. So cool.


  2. I too would like approx. 6 or 8 seeds just to try. That would be plenty to try. Please let me know if and how to get them. Thanks.


  3. Me too, me too! I want some! 🙂


  4. Me!Me1Me! You already have my address. I can commit to posting pictures AND to saving seeds since I do that already.

    I guess it isn’t ALL dead…. My water bill was $90 this month. I guess it was worth it, all my trees and sthrubs are stressed but alive. Praying for that line of storms to reach us….

    Interesting! I’m surprised a tomato this big has good flavor. Way to go!

    Nice looking tomato. I would love to receive some of the seeds and give this variety a try. I currently have 6 different varieties planted this year (a total of 34 plants, we really like tomato’s and can a lot). I have Rutger’s, Delicious, Beef Steak, Arkansas Traveler’s, Early Girl and San Marzano Roma’s.
    Been following you blog for a while and enjoy it.


  9. I’d love some of these seeds!
