Wild Sweetie tomato seeds

Posted by GardenOfGengo IN (My Page) on

Hello
I'm wondering if anyone can direct me to where I may be able to find and purchase some tomato seeds for the heirloom variety called Wild Sweetie??
I've read about this tomato in Amy Goldman's book The Heirloom Tomato and I really want to try out this tomato! I can't find it anywhere but perhaps I'm not looking in the right places.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks!
Gretchen

I've never seen one with this name before, not even in the Seed Savers Exchange handbook, which lists thousands of varieties of heirloom tomatoes, saved and offered by members.

There are several wild tomatoes that aren't too hard to find, including Matt's Wild and Texas Wild. These are tiny tomatoes, like currant tomatoes,and are very sweet and productive. You can find one of these without too much difficulty, Totally Tomatoes may have one of them.

I only found one company that carries them. They are called Diggers and are located in Australia. When I tried to order them, they emailed me back and said that they cannot ship to the US, I am hoping that some heirloom tomato aficionado would be willing to share some with me

Maybe a catalog called Totally Tomatoes might have them?

I was able to find some! Super ecstatic when I did :)
I found them on the website Restoration Seeds. I attached a link for you, mrtomatohead2. My garden is quite deprived, as I had a baby in May and haven't been giving it love as I normally would. These plants are still growing itty delicious tomatoes for me though! I have an unopened packet and plan to use them next year, hopefully they're still good then!

Here is a link that might be useful: Restoration seeds
