"1534" El Salvador +* Originated in El Salvador. * United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), [[USDA link::|PI 273020]]. Collected in 1961 from Santa Tecla, El Salvador. * USDA narrative: : ''"Fruit weight 27 grams, fruit long."''


(Emerald) Evergreen +* ?
(Spear's) Tennessee Green, Yellow Strain +* Found by Denise Salmon of Vancouver, BC, Canada, in the box of green-when-ripe tomatoes labelled [[Tennessee Green]], sold by a local vendor at Nat Bailey Farmer’s Market in 2006. The salesperson told Denise that this off-type fruit was found in the field of Tennessee Green tomatoes. Denise bought the off-type coloured fruits (yellow variant), saved some seeds and shared them with Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T) in 2007. * It is just a speculation that the [[Tennessee Green]] tomatoes sold at the farmer's market were in fact the [[Spear's Tennessee Green]] variety.


0-33 +* A cold-tolerant selection by a Russian tomato breeder P.Y. Saraev, who specialize in breeding tomatoes that can withstand freezing temperatures. * Introduced commercially by [[:Category:Tomato Seeds|Tatiana's TOMATObase Seeds]] in 2015.


1884 +* Heirloom tomato, found growing after the great flood of 1884. The plant was discovered by a Mr. Williamson near Friendly, West Virginia in a pile of flood debris in 1884.
1884 Purple +* Jeff Casey of Alberta, Canada received the seeds for the "1884" tomato from Michael Gunn of Pasadena, Texas in 2005, and shared with Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T) in Dec 2005. Both Jeff and Tatiana grew it in 2006 and observed large, dark-black-purple fruits which, in Tatiana's opinion, were better than the original [[1884]]. Tatiana named it "1884 Purple" to highlight fruit color difference compared to [[1884]].
1884 Strawberry Wedge +* Discovered in 1994 by Darrell Merrell of Tulsa, Oklahoma (OK ME D) in his patch of 12 [[1884]] tomato plants grown from seed purchased from The Tomato Seed Company (no longer in business). 3 plants were different and produced strawberry wedge-shaped fruits instead of expected beefsteaks, hence the name. Subsequent growouts showed that the off-type was stable. * It could have been that a few stray seed of a known heart-shaped variety that accidentally got mixed in, but it is impossible to prove it or dispute. * First offered in the Seed Savers 1997 Yearbook by Darrell Merrell of Tulsa, Oklahoma (OK ME D).

Mrs. Khilenko and her family have been growing many native Russian heirlooms for many years, and she shared seeds from her seed collection with Aleksey Kulik, a Ukrainian seed vendor. * Introduced commercially by [[:Category:Tomato Seeds|Tatiana's TOMATObase Seeds]] in 2016.

Abakanskiy +* [[:Category:Russian Tomatoes|Siberian heirloom]] from Altai region, Russia; from Tamara Yaschenko's collection. * The seeds were sent to [[B.C KO T|Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T)]] as part of a large seed exchange with [ Tamara Yaschenko] of Biysk, Siberia, Russia '' '' in 2006. Tatiana grew it in 2007 and offered it in the 2008 SSE Yearbook.
Abe Hall +* Seed was given to Jerry Moomaw of Glouster, Ohio (OH MO J) by Fred Hutchison, a decendent of Abe Hall. Jerry Moomaw introduced this tomato in the SSE 1997 Yearbook. * The story of this variety says that a boater, Abe Hall, grabbed a large pink tomato he saw floating by while he was riding out an Ohio River flood and planted its seeds.
Abe Lincoln +* Very old commercial heirloom, developed and released by the Buckbee Seed Company in 1923. * United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), [[USDA link::|PI 644867]]. Donated to USDA in 1963. * See [[Abraham Lincoln]] page for the background information.
Abraham Lincoln +* Developed and released by the Buckbee Seed Company of Rockford, Illinois in 1923 (it was the feature variety on the cover of their 1923 seed catalog). It was distinct in two ways - it was a large fruited (fruit around one pound) red variety, unlike the other large tomatoes of that time, which were nearly exclusively pink; and it was described as having distinctly "bronze" colored foliage. * It is clear that either this description was an exaggeration, the bronze coloring was specific to that season or particular growing conditions, or the variety became crossed over the years, as the variety as grown from existing sources does not match the original catalog description. Except for the strain obtained by Craig LeHoullier from the USDA, all sources seem to produce semi-determinate, green foliaged plants with medium to medium small, round, red fruit. The USDA sample, obtained in 1994, produced a vigorous indeterminate plant, large red oblate fruit to one pound, but it did not exhibit the bronze tinged foliage. Perhaps a further, more extensive grow out of the USDA seed sample may yield the "real thing". * United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), [[USDA link::|PI 644867]]. Donated to USDA in 1963. * Numerous commercial sources of different strains of Abraham Lincoln were noted for 2004 in the [ Garden Seed Inventory 6th edition].
Absinthe +* Developed by Alan Bishop from crosses of [[Emeraude]], [[Aunt Ruby's German Green]], and [[Brandywine]] in the mid-2000s.
Abu Rawan +* From Iraq, collected by Iraqi seed saver and collector Nael Aziz from France. * Named for the one-time caretaker of the greenhouses at the Agricultural College at Al Ghraib, Iraq. Maintained in cultivation in private gardens there since the 1970s. * Introduced commercially in North America by [[Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds]] in 2012.
