I won't try to guess how long. But will say they are in pretty good shape, I'm real interested in how they were stored that kept them form spoiling?

We took them on vacation the last week of July ! They where in a cabinet in the camper since then !! The camper sits in full sun and was closed up too . I've had tomatoes look worse sitting on the kitchen counters in a week . I just hope I saved the seed pack , I saved the seeds from the one I ate today but I think if it's a hy-brid it won't grow to be the same plant .

I'm not which variety of tomatoes those where but either " Granny Smith Hybird" by Lake Valley or " Jubilee" by Ferry-Morse . Also the 2 that are left one went bad and the other is starting to get a bad spot , they have only be on the counter a few days !
