• After promising to grow this variety for each of the last 7 years, I finally grew them out in 2018. What took me so long? Pantano Romanesco tomato is a superb variety in every way. Additionally, it is pretty early. Smooth, oblate, 6-10 fruits ripen to a very nice red that is just head turning. Plants are hardy and not too tall. Surprisingly, this is a very good sauce maker. It's also great for sandwiches. I highly recommend this as a main crop for market vendors. It worked very well for us. Sweetish, juicy and satisfying is how I would describe its taste.
  • The prettiest of pink tomatoes, this Chinese slicer is perfect inside and out. Five to six feet tall vines produce 4-6 ounce, very clean tomatoes that would work perfectly for market sales and as a main crop. Plants are especially disease free and are hard workers. Tomatoes have a nice smooth balance but, true to the Chinese varieties that we have grown, are still on the sweet side. This is not a fancy tomato, just a straight up good one!
  • Pomodor Pero Gigante Tomato

    It really doesn't mater that the tomato is not purple because it's excellent! Purple Dog Creek is a 1 pound slicer that works well for many applications. This well balanced fruit has flavor that will quickly get you hooked! It's not too sweet, acidic, juicy of mild. It's just perfect! Flesh has a really nice, smooth texture. Vines are hardy and seem to love hotter weather! Go for it!
  • Norcarlina Pink Tomato

    Norcarlina Pink Tomato was discovered in 1999 at a local farmers market and seeds shared. Some have said that it was a renamed variety but at this time there is uncertainty about that. This large pink beefsteak is a delight. It is mild and sweeter with pink flesh with tempting aroma. Texture is also very good and this one is medium firm when ripened. As far as production, that is very good also, making it a god choice for market vendors, which is where it was discovered in the first place. Plants are about 5-6 feet tall and vibrant. They begin to ripen their fruits about 80 days after being transplanted in their final growing spot. These are perfect sandwich companions with really awesome flavor! The next move is yours!!  
  • Ideal Tomato

    Seeds gifted to me by a friend, Ideal tomato is a small slicing variety that is the perfect all purpose variety. The first things that comes to mind is tomato stew, market sales and cooking. Taste is kind of old fashioned, medium mild with good overall balance. This variety is not timid as far s production. Our plants just kept pumping them out. I just wished I had the time to harvest more. Regular leafed plants grew to about 6 feet tall and were always loaded. These were pretty early too, starting to ripen around 72 days from transplant. Honestly, I am not sure that I grew a more useful variety in 2021. If you need is for a tomato that's not too large, one that can cover many bases, this is a great choice!
  • Giant Kalian Tomato


    Giant Kalian Tomato

    A very pleasing tomato, Giant Kalian tomato took me by surprise this year.  Our plants were really vibrant and disease-free. I really loved production also. These produced quite nicely until late in the season. Fruits were between 8 and 16 ounces, pink shinned and very, very good!  These even tasted good when not fully ripened. They remind me somewhat of Dester tomato, which, to me is one of the best beefsteaks ever! These are perfect for anything, really! Sandwiches will shine when you use this variety! Give it a shot!

  • One of my favorite new varieties in 2018, Scarlett heirloom tomato has found a regular spot in annual rotation. This very memorable tomato is pretty, tasty and multi-purposed. I mainly used it for cooking and sauces.

  • Dwarf Pink Passion tomato reminds me more of a true fruit instead of a tomato. It possesses a personality all of its own and can truly inspire passion! 3 feet tall vines are hardy and produce a good amount of pale pink, aromatic fruits. If you love your tomatoes softer, juicy, fruity, and rich, this tomato will give you that experience. That's not all, sandwiches shine with Pink Passion as their companion. A little mayonnaise, black pepper, salt, olive oil, and perhaps some fresh basil, and your sandwich is good to go. Fruits begin to ripen about 80 days after transplant and plants must be staked. These babies can reach 8 ounces. Surprisingly, Pink Passion tastes great even when not fully ripened.
