Mrs. Beiswenger of Crookston, MN is credited for introducing this tomato to the Seed Savers Network.  She received the tomato seeds from Mrs. Englert of Sandpoint, ID in 1980.  Mrs. Englert was 72 at the time and said "Nebraskan brides were given seeds of this tomato as a wedding gift.  It was said to have been brought from MN by pioneers in the late 1800s via covered wagons.   And it thrived in cold, windy Nebraska." 

Nebraska Wedding has apricot-orange skin and flesh.  3-4" globes are juicy with a well balanced acid-sweet flavor and can weight up to a pound.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Tomatoes:

Most gardeners want to get the most out of these delicious heirloom tomatoes and therefore give them a head start on the growing season.  Start these vegetable seeds indoors in sterile potting mix being sure to keep the temperature above 70 degrees.  Some people prefer to use a grow pad but the top of the fridge has been known to be quite effective as well. 

Once the first true leaves appear on your tomato seedlings, transplant into 4" pots until you have completely hardened them off in the garden.  Hardening is a process of exposing the plants more and more to outside temperature until they are hardy enough to tollerat a complete outdoor move.  Generally speaking, by early summer heirloom tomatoes should be transplated into the garden.

Most heirloom varieties are quite productive and will greatly benefit from sturdy supports.  It may also be advisable to add blood and bone to the worked soil to help ensure healthy productive heirloom tomatoes.

Seed Care tips for Heirloom Tomato Seeds:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.

    I've grown these tomatoes for several years with different weather extremes and they always produced whereas many different varieties failed. I normally raise 8 different varieties and this one and Arkansas Traveler are consistent producers for lower Michigan on sandy soil.
