This is widely known as the original Pink Brandywine strain, obtained by Ben Quisenberry from Dorris Sudduth Hill, whose family had grown it for more than 80 years. Many gardeners consider this strain the best Brandywine with fruit that is superior in taste and smoothness. Its tomatoes are indeed special, 1 to 2 pound pink beefsteaks with the delectably complex, rich, sweet flavor that has made Brandywine justifiably famous. Indeterminate. 85 days.
ALL-AMERICA SELECTIONS WINNER. Elongated cherry tomatoes grow in grape-like clusters and really load up on vigorous vines. The 1 ounce fruit has red, glossy skin and wonderful sweet flavor. As a bonus, the fruit is crack-resistant and holds on the vine better than most cherries. Expect high yields from plants that are tolerant to late blight and leaf spot. This variety is considered to be a 'big sister' variety of Santa. Indeterminate. 60 days.
Very large plants have an excellent set of huge, dark pink fruits with outstanding taste. It is unusual to find a variety that bears such large fruit in generous numbers and maintains such superb taste. And to add to that, you can expect steady, continuous production of tomatoes that weigh more than 1 lb. throughout the growing season. This family heirloom was brought into the U.S. by a Mexican family living in the Midwest. Indeterminate. 80 days.
This heirloom variety was originally released in 1944 by the University of Nebraska and is worth planting today because of its incredible flavor and reliably large harvests even in hot weather. Although this appears to be just an average size (6 oz.), unassuming red tomato, you just have to grow it to believe how good it is -- sweet yet tangy and full of those rich, complex flavors that make a delicious tomato memorable. Extraordinary taste in a round, red tomato. Indeterminate. 70 days.
AAS WINNER. Judges raved about the productivity of this award winning beefsteak tomato. Firm fleshed fruit weigh 8 ounces and are 6 inches in width. Flavor is exceptional, with just the right balance of acids and sugars. Improved disease resistance and a strong 5-foot indeterminate vine offers impressive potential for yield and gardening success. 80 to 85 days.
The first lemon yellow, not golden, tomato variety, and still one of the best. Extremely vigorous plants produce large harvests of attractive fruit that weighs 8 ozs. or more. Flavor is outstanding, mild and sweet yet tangy and definitely not bland. This one is easy to grow and understandably one of our most popular yellow tomatoes. Indeterminate. 72 days.
This is not only a beautiful red tomato with a melodious name, it is a really serious performer. It is both heat tolerant and resistant to tomato spotted wilt virus, two very important benefits for many growers. In one Louisiana trial of virus resistant tomatoes, Bella Rosa ranked up at the top for its productivity as well as its large fruit size and great flavor. Expect high yields of large, 10 to 12 oz. delicious tomatoes with bright red flesh. Determinate. 75 days.
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.
ALL AMERICA SELECTIONS AWARD WINNER. This crack-resistant hybrid originated with the heirloom Amana Orange and retains that wonderful old-fashioned flavor while adding some improvements. The hybrid has 9 to 12 oz. tomatoes that mature much earlier than Amana Orange and do not crack. The color both inside and out is a beautiful glowing orange that holds its intensity even when tomatoes are cooked, lending itself to creative uses by chefs. Vigorous plants are quite productive and are resistant to Tobacco Mosaic Virus and anthracnose. Indeterminate. 75 days.
2005 ALL-AMERICA SELECTIONS AWARD WINNER - Very sweet, cherry sized tomatoes are oval shaped with a pointed blossom end and a beautiful reddish-pink color. Fruit is produced in clusters on high yielding semi-indeterminate vines, which means that plants stay more compact but continue to produce over a long season. Indeterminate. 60 days.
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.
