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!
When I saw this variety in the Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds catalog, I just had to try it. Plants are loaded with gorgous dusky pink/purple fruits. The flavor is amazing!
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.
Wow! This tomato has it all - good looks, fabulous taste, nice size and very few seeds. Originally from Bavaria, it made it's debut in America in 1883. Makes a great all-purpose tomato - wonderful for slicing, juicing, canning and freezing. Fruits weigh 1-2 pounds and have a full, sweet flavor. One of my personal favorites!
A beautiful and tasty golden beefsteak type tomato, sure to please any palette.
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?!?
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.
A friend shared these seeds with me and I’m in love! The medium sized yellow fruits with blush-colored bottoms are the perfect size for slicing and sandwiches.
Looking for a classic red tomato? Look no further! Rutgers is an old time favorite, popular since WWII when it was the primary tomato breed used in commercial tomato production (and made Campbell's tomato soup famous!). This tomato is great for any purpose (slicing, salsa, jucing, canning, freezing, sauce), but I make sure to grow plenty to can and freezer for our own tomato soup. Delicious!
Bred by the University of Wisconsin in the 1940s, this is a versatile tomato with great flavor. Smooth, large tomatoes. Plants are extremely productive. An old-time favorite.
I spotted seeds for this variety at my local Seed Library and had to try it out. It did not disappoint! I’m so excited to share it with you!
The paste-type tomatoes are enormous and perfect for canning, salsa, sauce or soup.
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.
Famous Italian cooking tomato that makes the best sauce! Fruits are longer than Romas, with dry flesh that cooks down easily into sauce.
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.
Try all 3 of the Bumblebee Cherry tomatoes! Beautiful AND delicious - my favorite! Choose from:

Always among the first to ripen, Gold Nugget has an unusually rich, sweet flavor. Vigorous plants are loaded with round golden fruit from early in the season 'til frost.
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.
Beautiful classic sweet red bell pepper. Ripens from green to red. Bred specifically to ripen in time for those of us growing in Northern climates. If you have not had much success with Red California Wonder peppers, give King of the North a try!

The perfect snack sized pepper! Plants are loaded with delicious sweet orange mini peppers. My daughter's favorite!
