Now for the main event: Tomatoes. Everyone from celebrity chefs to food critics are talking about heirloom tomatoes. With good reason. Heirloom tomatoes have been perfectly bred for small-scale home production. They don’t transport well, they aren’t always blemish-free, but when you’re able to pick them at the peak of ripeness and enjoy them right away, they are the best tomatoes you’ll ever have, anywhere, anytime. Sweet, rich, full of flavor, they are everything grocery store tomatoes wish they could be. Since these heirlooms are traditional varieties developed for home use by families and communities over the last few centuries, they are widely variable in size, shape, and color. Try anything that strikes your fancy, you can’t really go wrong.
Most heirloom tomatoes are indeterminate, meaning that fruit will continue to set throughout the season. A few heirloom tomatoes are determinate, with large yields of tomatoes all at once. Determinate tomatoes are great for canning and preserving, since the whole crop comes in at about the same time. All tomatoes are indeterminate unless otherwise noted.
Minimum 25 seeds per packet unless otherwise noted in the product description.
