Pawlow, I have some of the varieties you are looking for, but I can't tell what YOU have. When I click on your "trade" link I get stuck in some real estate web site. Please clarify. Tomatobob

Hello back, and thanks for the response. Sorry to say, I don't have a need for the seeds you have. I applaud the presence of pokeweed on your list. Keep those old-timey greens alive!

Rare/Heirloom Tomato Information

Has anyone heard of Schmeig Craig tomatoes? I got the seeds years ago from Abundant Life, before their fire. I've not seen them since, but have saved and grown them all these years. Looking for information on them.

Hi Sandy,

This seems to be an odd place to put your question. The spelling you gave is actually incorrect, it is Schimmeig Creg.

This year five members of Seed Saver's Exchange have it listed, one with no description, and described as:
1. 80 days, med. size, red fruit with orange stripes, red flesh, sweet, high yields, best when very ripe
2. 82 days, great looking striped tomato, too bad the taste does not match, still worth growing for attractiveness and possible cross-breeding
3. 80 days, indet., regular leaf, med. size plums, red with orange & yellow stripes, flavor is quite good
4. 80 days, indet., 2" red fleshed fruit with red & yellow stripes

Of course taste is subjective, and you may find that you like them very well.

In case you don't check back here, I have sent you an email with this info.
