2024 Tomato Plants

Here's a list of the plants we have available this year:

Slicing Tomatoes:

Big Brandy: (pink) “This terrific heirloom-hybrid is a result of crossing Brandywine with New Big Dwarf. The hybrid is much higher yielding and earlier to mature than its heirloom parents, with all of the great flavor and fewer blemishes. Regular-leaved plants bear pink beefsteaks that weigh 12 to 16 ozs. and have all the wonderful taste of the original heirlooms. Indeterminate. 75 days.”

Darkstar: (dark purple) “This new hybrid heirloom type combines the flavor of heirlooms with the productive quality of a commercial variety. The attractive, dark purple fruit weigh 7 to 10 ounces, and have deliciously sweet and tangy flesh. And Darkstar is resistant to Late Blight. The strong, 6 – 7 foot tall indeterminate vines will produce over a long period of time, with great productivity. 75 days.”

Early Girl: (red) “Dependable large harvests of flavorful, solid 4 to 6 oz. fruit. Disease resistance is good, contributing to its excellent performance in almost any climate. A proven variety for delicious, early tomatoes. Indeterminate. 52 days.”

Cherokee Carbon: (purple) “Another winning variety from the Heirloom Marriage(TM) series that crosses two heirloom varieties to create an offspring that is higher yielding and earlier but retains all the great flavor of the parents. This robust deep purple beefsteak is a cross of Cherokee Purple and Carbon, both of which are famous for their unique and delicious flavors. Expect 10 to 12 oz. unblemished tomatoes with exquisite taste. Indeterminate. 75 days.”

Defiant: (red) “Bred for earliness, disease resistance, and flavor. This mid-size slicer has high resistance to late blight and intermediate resistance to early blight combined with great flavor. The 6–8 oz., globe-shaped fruit are smooth and medium-firm with good texture. Deep red internal and external color. High-yielding, medium-sized plants are widely adaptable.” Determinate. 65 days.

Celebrity Plus: (red) “Fruits avg. 7–9 oz. with more uniform shoulder ripening and better crack tolerance. Healthy plants.” Resistant to Alternaria, Fusarium, Gray Leaf Spot, Nematodes, Tomato Mosaic Virus, Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus, and Verticillium Wilt. Vigorous determinate. 78 days.

Polish Linguisa: (red) A paste tomato developed in the 1800’s, seeds were passed down for generations within a family that made selections for size and flavor. Linguisa is like a Roma on steroids. Most paste tomatoes range 2-4 ounces, these tomatoes are 8-10 ounces. Indeterminate. 73 days.

Amish: (pink) An absolutely HUGE tomato from an Amish group in Iowa. Extremely meaty with very few seeds. This one is popular with canners because it cuts down on the work! Indeterminate. 80 days.

Fred’s Tie Dye: (pink with green stripes) “Fred’s Tie-Dye Dwarf Tomato is essentially Berkeley Pink Tie-Dye on a dwarf 3′ plant, its abundant, striped slicers averaging 8 ounces. You’ll enjoy plenty of fruit when you grow these in containers, all the more if you trellis them ever so slightly.” This is Rachel’s all time favorite tomato! 70 days.

Manyel: (yellow) Manyel means "many moons," as they appear among the leaves on the vine. Of Native American origin. Regular leaf plant produces 3-inch, round, clear-yellow tomatoes that are mildly sweet with a tinge of citrus within the array of delicious flavors. I really enjoyed this tomato last year and it produced well for us. Indeterminate, 75 days.

Cherry Tomatoes:

Sungold: “Intense fruity flavor. Exceptionally sweet, bright tangerine-orange cherry tomatoes leave everyone begging for more. Vigorous plants start yielding early and bear right through the season. Tendency to split precludes shipping, making these an exclusively fresh-market treat. The taste can't be beat. 15–20 gm. fruits.” Indeterminate. 57 days.

Yellow Cuban: Tiny pear-shaped lump of sugar. These plants produce very long vines and an abundance of fruit. Great for snacking in the garden. Expect long clusters of fruit that can be picked individually with very little cracking. Indeterminate. 90 days.

Golden Sweet and Valentine: Yellow and red grape tomato varieties. Golden Sweet was especially prolific for us last year and delicious. Both varieties are fairly firm and resist cracking. 60 and 55 days.

Black Cherry: This one has a deep rich black tomato flavor in a bite size package. Large vines produce an abundance of sweet fruit in 65 days.

Mexico Midget: This is a wild red currant tomato with an intense BIG tomato flavor. This is by far our most popular cherry tomato.

Sweet Million: An improved version of Sweet 100, this variety offers the same wonderful flavor and yields, but much better disease resistance and tolerance to cracking. Incredibly long clusters of 1 inch dark red fruit grow on tall, vigorous plants. Indeterminate. 65 days.
