Plant Information
Introduced in Illinois in 1923 by the W.H. Buckbee Seed Company, Abraham Lincoln tomatoes are named for another famous Illinois native. A man of notable stature, Abe's name is particularly befitting a tomato that gets so large in size! The vine-like plants can be left to sprawl on the ground, giving you higher yields of smaller tomatoes and eliminating the need to prune. However, the preferred growing method is to support the vines with staking, enabling them to climb upward and produce larger fruits. And these tomatoes do get large, so be sure your support structure is of ample size and sturdiness to support the fruits' weight. Abraham Lincoln tomatoes grow in clusters of 6-9 fruits, each tomato maturing into a brilliant red, perfectly round fruit that can weigh as much as a pound. They're very meaty, smooth, and mild-tasting and ripen all the way through, and they're extremely resistant to splitting no matter how sizable they get. Like all tomatoes, Abraham Lincoln tomatoes are filled with many healthy nutrients, most notably lycopene. Tomatoes have the highest concentration of this beneficial antioxidant, which has been found to aid in the prevention and treatment of cancer, promote cardiovascular health, and help maintain healthy eyes.
