This three piece collection features old-fashioned flavor and colorful fruit that cannot be beat for tomato lovers!
Includes one pot each of 'Abraham Lincoln', 'Mortgage Lifter' and 'Cherokee Purple' tomatoes.
From gourmet chefs to commercial growers to backyard gardeners, these varieties are highly sought after for their taste, productivity, and presentation.

'Abraham Lincoln' produces consistently large crops of extra meaty tomatoes. With its dark red fruit and bronzy-green foliage, it stands out among heirloom tomatoes with its 8-ounce fruits and rich, summery tomato flavor.

'Mortgage Lifter' is a big, meaty fruit with few seeds and a mildly smooth flavor. Its low acid flavor and big pink fruit weighing 16 to 24-ounces each make this variety an all-time favorite. It is also known for its tale of the gardener who created the variety in the 1930s and paid off his mortgage by selling plants one by one!

'Cherokee Purple' is a masterpiece of both color and taste! This heirloom sets giant beefsteak tomatoes, up to 16-ounces each, in violet-purple hues. Juiciness and a tangy flavor are well-known attributes of this heavy producer.


Is this for you?
With indeterminate vining plants, you will receive continued growth and fruit until the first visit of frost. These tomatoes perform well in containers or raised beds if you are limited on space. With some of these reaching nearly 6-feet tall, we suggest staking the plants or letting them grow in a tomato cage.

Disease resistant and easy to care for, these tomato plants are a must-have addition to your summer vegetable garden! For best results, we recommend planting in a location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sun per day. Tomatoes require plenty of water, fertilizer and support for success! To produce larger fruit, prune by cutting out suckers (auxillary shoots between the stems and the leaves).

Can be grown throughout most of the continental U.S. An excellent value and investment for any gardener. **This product cannot ship to the following states and territories AK, HI, PR, VI, GUAM.


What to expect:
Plants ship to you based on your geographic location. Your shipment will be based on the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map which we have correlated to your zip code. This means you will receive your plants when it is the right time to plant for you.

You will receive one each of three varieties of tomatoes, well rooted in 2.5-inch pots. These plants were carefully selected and packed for safe transport directly to you. Open immediately and follow the instructions in the planting guide available online that provides specific care instructions including how to plant them, continuing care and winterizing.

Expect plants to reach maturity in 3 months. However, growth of these plants can be affected by many factors including fertilization and climate factors unique to your planting location.

Expect heaviest fruit in late summer with continuous fruiting until fall. This annual puts all its effort into one season, yielding an abundance of delicious tomatoes that can't be beat!
