Tomato
Black

A Russian import that has made its mark as one of the best-tasting "black" tomatoes. Fruits are actually mahogany red-brown, thin-skinned and soft, with dark purplish flesh. Attractive, 2 to 3" fruits are smooth with a juicy texture that holds together for slicing. Flavor is a complex blend of sugar and acid that leans toward the sweet side.

Brandywine

10-16 oz. Fruits. This oversized beauty is considered by many to be the finest of all tomatoes. William Woys Weaver has documented its introduction in January 1889 by Johnson & Stokes of Philadelphia. Thin-skinned variety produces better in cooler weather.

Cherokee Purple

Medium-large, flattened globe fruits. Color is dusky pink with dark shoulders. Multilocular interior ranges from purple to brown to green.

Garden Peach

This unique heirloom looks very much like a small peach - it even has slightly fuzzy skin! Small, 2 oz., light-yellow fruits have a delicate, distinctive flavor that's light, clean and a little bit fruit-like. A prolific producer of juicy fruits that have excellent keeping quality. Introduced to American gardens in 1862.

Great White

A magnificent, almost perfect, "white" tomato with low acidity and few seeds

Green Zebra Tomatoes

Beautiful chartreuse with deep lime-green stripes, very attractive. Flesh is bright green and very rich tasting, sweet wth a sharp bite to it. A favorite tomatoe of many high class chefs. This is the tomatoe colored for the Green Bay Packers.

Hillbilly

This ancient heirloom hails from the hills of West Virginia, where they know a superb tomato when they see one! Huge, mild-flavored, beefsteak-type fruits weigh 1 to 2 lbs. apiece, and are colored a most unusual orange- yellow, streaked and mottled in attractive shades of red and pink.

Japanese Black Trifele

Japanese Black Trifele is a really cool heirloom from Russia, I know the name says Japanese, but it is from Russia. The fruit is medium sized and dense and meaty, the flavor is salty and super complex.  Shoulders should be green.

Pruden's Purple

A silken texture and rich tomato taste, nicely tart with a balanced undertone of sweetness that is neither insipid nor cloying.

Rose

An Amish heirloom from Pennsylvania. Large, crack resistant, 10 oz. fruits are meaty and dusty rose colored. Flavor is excellent, and is considered by some to rival Brandywine. Plants are vigorous and strong with good leaf cover.

Yellow Brandywine

A Golden-yellow version of Brandywine.
