I have a few extra seeds from each tomato I grew.

Reistomate is a red tomato that looks mutated and has many small tomatoes to create one large.

Big Zac is a beefsteak but seeds came from a 5 pound prize winner tomato, yes you read correctly, 5 pounds!

The special tomato is red the size of a golf ball. What makes it special is you have the potential to get 3 kinds of seedlings; albino that die, yellow green, and normal green. Both greens grow into healthy plants, the yellow green is quite interesting in color. The yellow leaves are called "lutescent", but unlike lutescent 'honor bright' cuktivar which goes from green and gets yellow and looks sickly, mine only has green coetyldon and doesn't look sickly.

Send a tree mail with you address specifying which variety you'd like.

The special tomato, the yellowish leaves are called "lutescent", unlike lutescent 'honor bright' which starts off green and looks sickly, mine stays yellow and leaves aren't sickly looking.

That's okay ... hopefully someone who grows that one will share photos at some point. I've seen pictures on line and it really is a huge tomato!

Keith, as long as it's your photo you can still upload it to the database! I see someone has added one photo of seedlings but if you have a picture of the fruit that would be a great addition to that entry in the database too! Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Big Zac')
