Does anyone have a more up to date source for seeds from Brad/Wild Boar ??

The wildboarfarms link brings up pages that are at least 2 years old with no pages for seeds available.

The localharvest link doesn't have any of the Boar seeds listed any more. The merchant link gives an opps mesage about the seller no longer there or something like that.

In reading about some of the Boar tomatoes several of them were intregueing and looked like something I would like to try if I could find them.

Thanks for the help

Try wildboarfarms@hotmail.com and address the email to Brad Gates. Tell him what you're interested in and offer to mail him payment for what it is you want. Don't neglect to try Pink Tie Die and Pork Chop, two of the best in my opinion.

I have to agree about Pink Berkeley Tie Dye and Pork Chop.

I grew several of Brad's tomatoes for the first time last year and those 2 were real winners for me also.

Sounds great.

In some other threads I saw mention of Black & Red Boar, Striped Red Boar, and Evan Purple Pear. Those sounded good to me too. Anyone concure ?

Plan to try Evan's Purple Pear and Brown and Black Boar next year - hear good reports. Must say that Brad's Black Heart did very well for me this year, tasty and productive, definitely a grow-again!

Grew "Brad's Black Heart" and "Scabitha" this year and looking forward to "Pork Chop" and others next year. Ami

I've got a range of the Boars in down under and looking forward to the results. Good to hear such positive comments. Unfortunately I will have to collect seeds if I am to grow them again due to Oz import restrictions (or get some Christmas cards!!!!)

Evan's Purple Pear was under productive, pretty but bland.

Black and Brown Boar was a very healthy plant, relatively late, concentrated and very productive, a bit on the bland side, but not bad except very seedy.

See we all have our own different taste buds. Someone else had Evan's Purple Pear in a "must grow" list in another thread.

Thanks for the info gang.

Black and Red Boar was given out as a gift labeled "Trial Seeds" from Baker Creek this past summer. I believe the Niagara Tfest had it in their tasting samples. Maybe one of those folks can tell us about the tastiness.

That's wonderful to hear. Please keep us posted with a link as to which site you got set up when it's ready.

I'm new here but I've heard good stuff about quite a few of your varieties and would like to be able to grow several this coming year.

I know how the web site stuff can get put on the "back burner" when the garden needs attention. My own web site just got up dated last week since I had a flu-bug and the weather was too awful to be outside anyway.

Thanks for letting us know.

Just want to add that Black and Brown Boar has been really fantastic for me this fall. Even though I planted a few weeks late and we started getting temps in the 40's, which usually suck the flavor right out of the tomatoes for me, Black and Brown Boar has really held up in the flavor department, and I got a decent harvest.

Definitely returning next spring!

As of the attendees, and the one that ended up saving seed from almost all the varieties we had there, I can attest to tasting Black and Red Boar. In fact, I wrote it as one of my fav's on my notes, and also made a note to snare some seeds (that was before I agreed/offered to save Remy the work of processing all the leftovers for seeds.). Can't remember how it placed in the voting, but perhaps Remy can say, since she was the one that tabulated the votes/ballots, I believe.
