source for heirloom tomato plants

jgoldschmidt(Z6a Kentucky)May 6, 2004

anyone one know where i can get heirloom tomato plants -ready for planting - in greater cincinnnati - northern kentucky?

for the last five years i grew heirloom tomatoes from seed, but i couldn't get to it this year.

most importantly, i'm looking for pink brandywine (sudduth strain) which is a popular heirloom.

Scary as it sounds...I live in Cincinnati and got Mr Stripey and Brandywine tomatoes at Lowes! They had German Green and another heirloom variety as well.

I about fell over in shock...but I was thrilled. Hope this helps, I just got mine Saturday.

I checked out the Highland Heights, KY loews and didn't find any -- bu I also know different locations carry different things.

Which Lowe's did you go?

Jim, This is my first visit to this forum (is it new?) Anyway, I wish I'd seen your post earlier! The tomato forum has spawned a few local groups, and the Cincinnati one is probably the most active of all of them. Do a search on CHOPTAG on the tomato forum, and you'll find the threads. Anyway, we met to exchange seedlings in the spring, and will meet probably in August for a taste test; and in January to exchange seeds. Very nice group of people, too! I went with nothing to trade and came home with about 15 fantastic seedlings (including Suduth - sorry to make you feel bad!) They all say they need more people like me because they have so many extras that need a good home.

I went to Rahn's on Gray Road in Cincinnati and got several Black Prince plants, which is one of my favorites; don't know if they still have them. There are also some mail order places that sell seedlings; don't have a link for you, but you could try that new Google "frugal" search feature.

Good luck!

Have you tried DR Tomato seed Company in Ohio ? They carry the Sudduth strain of beefsteak.

Here is a link that might be useful: DR Tomato Seed Company
