Tomato Plant Varieties Available:

Brandywine Tomato (left)
Brandywine is an Amish heirloom that dates back to 1885 and is generally considered to be the world’s best-tasting tomato.  Plants have “potato leaves” and produce good yields of firm extra-large, light rosy pink fruit.

Large Red Tomato (middle)
Large Red is a flattened, attractively ribbed beefsteak type heirloom tomato. The fruit is bright red and usually weighs 12-14 ounces, but occasionally can weigh over a pound. 

Yellow Pear Tomato (right)
Vigorous vines produce high yields of 2” yellow skinned, pear-shaped fruits with few seeds. Always a dependable performer.
