2018 Heirloom Plants
Take home part of the Three Acre Farm! We grow a variety of plant starts you can cultivate in your OWN garden! All plants are started right on the farm (in our 1880's farmhouse basement) and lovingly tended to ensure your gardening success.
These are varieties that we grow in our garden, the tried and true favorites after years of experimenting... and few new varieties we try for fun. Most are grown from Organic seed, which means they are well suited to be grown in your organic garden.
The classic multi-purpose tomato. Firm flesh and few seeds. Great for slicing, salsa, canning, freezing or sauce. Most of the fruits ripen around the same time, which is handy for canning or freezing.
Well, I didn't think any tomato would ever come close to the flavor of Cherokee Purple, but when I grew in Pink Berkley Tie-Dye last year, I had a hard time deciding which one is the best! Pink Berkley Tie-Dye certainly wins the award when it comes to good looks. They are quite possibly the most beautiful tomatoes I have ever seen, with a deep pink background and stripes of metallic yellow-green. Stunning appearance and taste - what more could you ask for?!?
Hands down the best tomato I've ever tasted! Don't let the unusual look turn you off - some might call it "ugly", but I call it "misunderstood". The flavor is out of this world! The "shoulders" (top) of the tomato often remain green, but the underside turns a lovely pink/purple color when ripe.
One of the best tasting tomatoes out there! When people think of "Heirloom Tomatoes", Brandywine is at the top of the list. Fruits are huge, up to 1 1/2 pounds each! If you haven't tried one, you are missing out!
Oh. My. Goodness. These teeny, tiny tomatoes are like candy. You can't stop eating them! I just stand in the garden and pop them in my mouth. About half the size of a classic cherry tomato, but twice the flavor! The plants are incredibly vigorous and highly productive. Be sure to provide a trellis or stake for the plant to climb on, as it can easily grow 7-10 feet high.
A friend shared these seeds with me and I'm in love with these pretty pink tomatoes! Early Detroit was released by D.M. Ferry seed company of Detroit, Michigan in 1909. It was very common in the Detroit area in the 1950’s and 60’s. The fruit is about tennis ball sized and perfect for sandwiches and salads. Also good for cooking and canning.
Everyone who buys this cherry tomato comes back to the farm and raves about it! It's that good. The fruits are a lovely dusky pink/purple color and slightly larger than a classic cherry tomato. These look lovely when paired with red and yellow cherry tomatoes.
