    Well, if you are growing one already and getting tomatoes, can't you just keep some seeds from your tomato (provided that is the ONLY tomato you have)?

    Mountain Spring is a hybrid variety and thus will not produce true to the parent when planted back. It was developed by NC State especially for the Southeast. Others in that series are Mountain Delight, Mountain Fresh, and Mountain Pride.
