Are you ready to grow great tasting tomatoes? Here's our 2017 list of tomato varieties, all started lovingly from seed by us:
(We have limited supply of some varieties, so get your plants early!)
Abe Lincoln - Heirloom from 1923. Tops the list of big red tomatoes for flavor, appearance, production and disease resistance.
Ace 55 - Heirloom that produces red, thick-walled tomato that resists cracking, bruising and bursting. Great farmer's market tomato.
Arkansas Traveler - Old fashioned heirloom traditionally grown in the South. Very tasty with fruits up to half a pound.
Better Bush - Great for gardeners that have little space. Plants have a stocky upright stem that keeps it upright, so rarely requires caging.
Black Cherry - Heirloom with beautiful black cherry tomatoes that look like clusters of large grapes. Rich flavor.
Black Elephant - Medium to large size heirloom tomato from France. Flavor is well balanced and sweet.
Black Krim - Heirloom from Siberia. One of the most rare of the black tomatoes with incredibly rich, fruity flavor.
Black Zebra - Cherry tomato with stripes. Exceptionally rich, complex tomato flavors with a hint of smokiness.
Celebrity - Medium to large tomatoes can be used in canning, cooking or eaten raw on a sandwich. Nice flavor.
Cherokee Purple - One of the best tasting of the heirloom tomatoes producing loads of purple colored 12oz - 1lb beefsteak tomatoes.
Chocolate Cherry - Heirloom with attractive skin colored in shades of port wine and chestnut. Very productive plants produce 1 inch round fruit nonstop.
Christmas Grapes - Produces clusters of grape-sized fruits right up until frost. Great flavor burst!
Czech Bush - Extremely productive heirloom bush tomato. Perfect to grow in a pot on the patio. Doesn't need to be caged, but must be staked due to heavy clusters of fruit.
First Lady II - Large size for an early tomato. Yields 5oz very flavorful red tomatoes. Excellent for salads and sandwiches.
Green Zebra - An unusual and exquisite green heirloom tomato. Very tasty. Brightens up a salad.
Homestead - Heirloom great for hot and humid regions. 8oz fruits are resistant to cracking.

Super Sioux - Heirloom that sets fruit well in high temperatures. 4oz fruit with thick walls and tart flavor.
Tumbling Tom Red and Yellow - Bushy habit great in pots and hanging baskets. Sturdy and compact plants that need only a little support. A heavy cropper.
