I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

Organic Plainsman Tomato Seeds
Organic Plainsman Tomato Seeds (65 days)
Sustainably GrownTomato Seed
Developed in Texas by Dr. H. C. Mohr at Texas A&M College in the 1960s as a processing variety, home garden and early market type. "Performs particularly well on the High Plains of Texas and should be adapted to other dry climates."
A true Texas heirloom tomato. Fruits weigh around 6 oz. Plainsman is extra early and a heavy yielder of vivid red fruit with good globe shape and excellent quality. Plant is small and compact so requires a minimum of space. Foliage protects against sunburn better than most early types.
One of the few truly Texas "born" tomatoes I know of. There must be more! Please email me if your family has a uniquely Texas tomato that has been in your family for generations.
