Help me find tomato seeds please
I was hoping that someone could help me to locate a specific strain of tomatoes.... It looks like several mishaps may have ended the line that we have had for 50 years now.
My grandfather got some seeds from a US soldier who
was in Berlin at the end of WWII. The soldier got the seeds
from a Russian soldier in a trade. Here is a description of
very large (as in 1-3 lbs each)
lobes or deep ridges
some cracking can occur in the thin skin
purple/dark red color, sometimes green streaks
few seeds, almost no seed "goop"
very sweet, outstanding flavor (with just a touch of salt,
you can make a meal out of one)
late season/80+ days maturity
A Polish woman told us that the tomato was just like
common tomatoes in Poland.
Over the years, the tomatoes crossed with other types
several times, so we have been looking for the original
strain for a couple of years, but it looks like we are in
a crisis. Would anyone know if any of the following strains
fit my description?
Caspian Pink Beefsteak
Black Krim Beefsteak
Maslov's Giant Beefsteak
If not, any suggestions???
