There`s only two heirloom seed companys here in NZ,Koanga and Eco Seeds,(Kings Seeds offer a small range of heirlooms),none offer a tomato that even looks close to EOE.Theres only about twenty or so NZ heirloom tomatoes,most of those came with the early setters in 1840s -1880s.If EOE was breed within NZ, it and Money Maker are really the only true NZ heirlooms, then again is Money Maker old enough to even be a heirloom?

Over the next few seasons i would like to grow some those 20 heirlooms,post photos of them here on T V and see if there original names can be identifed.
