A search turned up I think two different plant types..

Check out these sites. On the first site scroll down to "flora-dade" and read the info.  The second site is a variety called exactly as you said, "Homestead"

http://www.victoryseeds.com/catalog/vegetable/tomato/tomato.html

http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/31015/

There seems to be other sites also about this "homestead" tomato. Just do a google search. I did not look hard enough to find seeds. but they must be out there.

most seed stores will have them this spring around here or bonnie plants sells them at walmart other places. Homestead's are a nice tomato. My favorite though is the beefstek tomatoe.

As stated, Victory seeds have many varieties and are heirloom. I have such a short season I purchased some Siberian Tomato seed from Victory this winter. They are supposed to be 52 day. That would be great for us in this altitude. Will see how they do.
