Abe Lincoln Tomato


Abe Lincoln Tomato is an heirloom variety introduced in Illinois in the 1920s. Produces huge clusters of 1 lb tomatoes great for slicing and canning. Resistant to early blight. Solanum lycopersicum. 80 days to maturity.


Abe Lincoln Tomato is an heirloom, open-pollinated variety that was introduced in 1923. The variety was named after Abraham Lincoln, who was from Illinois where the variety was developed. This variety has excellent disease-resistance for an heirloom tomato, including resistance to early blight and alternaria stem canker.

Abe Lincoln Tomato is an indeterminate variety with large plants that will continually produce throughout the warm growing season. Fruits can get as large as 1 lb each and grow in massive clusters, with up to 9 tomatoes per cluster. This is a great slicing variety for tomato sandwiches, but also is the preferred variety by many for canning and making sauces. The fruits have a slightly acidic flavor and have a uniform ripeness with no green shoulders.


Growing Information

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be "stepped-up" to 4" pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.

Love The Abe Lincoln Tomatoes

This is my first year growing the Abe Lincoln Tomatoes. I'm very impressed. They are hugh! And taste fantastic. I will definitely be growing them again. I have had fantastic luck with all seeds I have purchased from Hoss over the past couple of years.
