Casey's also lists JD special C-Tex for those interested.

Jeff I know well and just sent him off a few varieties he wanted and a couple of surprises.

There are many places where seeds for Earl of Edgecombe can be bought and TGS and Sandhill Preservation come to mind without my doing a google search.

BTW, I think Jeff does a wonderful job with his tomatoes as well as having accurate tomato descriptions. TGS and Victory and Sandhill are also good with descriptions, I think. And pretty soon all the 400 or so varieties at Sandhill will have the basic info on plant habit, leaf form and other traits, hopefully in 2010 since the 2009 catalog is being printed as we speak and most of the website has been updated, but not all.

Nice looking tomatoes. I'm quite fond of EoE. A good looker and a great taster. I have it in the garden this year making its second appearance.

Looking good there! I am very happy that the 3 remaining seeds I had produced something for you. It would've been a total bummer for both of us if none of them germinated.

Take your time. I may not be able to grow much of anything this year with not knowing yet where we're moving. Sighhhhh.

Kay,I was the first to introduce it to the US,seeds from Ulrike in England and here's the history behind it

I don't have any fresh seeds but I know that others do.

Richard!!!!!!

Didn't you get my PM telling you about your Birthday thread in the 2 cents Forum,which I intiated and asked you to come back and look at it?

It's not too late to do that you know.

Carolyn, and Kay,also noting that if you go to the WANTED seed subforum and ask for seeds I know that you will get offers. Asking for seeds in the Legacy Forum doesn't work that well. I forgot to say this in the post I just did here.
