Buy TOMATO Seeds L-Z

  • All Tomatoes are OP(Open Pollinated) and/or Heirloom with a minimum of 15 seeds per packet unless stated otherwise.
  • All tomato packets are $1.50 unless stated otherwise.
  • Free seeds with every order!
  • Varieties grown by us (most of the tomato listings) are organic, but not certified. Some varieties are CERTIFIED ORGANIC. To not make mistakes when supplies change, they are not listed as such. If you need to know if your choices are organic, please send an email to SampleSeeds@yahoo.com.
  • All tomato descriptions are from my experience/climate.
    I was asked by a customer about adding DTM(Days To Maturity) to my descriptions. I really don’t like them since so much is variable on the weather and the gardener.
    I try to be as honest as possible in how a plant performs here. I am in one of the most northern spots of zone 6 in the country. So those of you in zone 5 probably can expect experiences similar to mine. Spring comes late here compared to you to the south, and I always hope I can get them out by mid-May. I usually get them out in the second half of May. Sometimes the weather does not cooperate(too rainy), and it is the beginning of June.
    If I say a plant is early, I’m getting tomatoes in good amounts at the end of July/beginning of August. If I say a plant has produced a lot of tomatoes, by the end of August, I’ve thought to myself how good the plant has done. If I’m waiting in Sept. for the first ripe tomato off the plant, or it only grew a few tomatoes, I promise to say so in the description as I did for Beauty King as an for example.
  • Plants are indeterminate and regular leaf unless otherwise stated.
  • Because I get asked so often about varieties that can easily be grown in pots, plants that are dwarf or determinate will be highlighted with POT in their title.
    Other varieties are can be grown in pots(a customer told me they have easily grown Stupice and Matina in pots) but pots for indeterminates must be quite large and staking can become an issue.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALarge Red Cherry tomLRC
This is a well known cherry is said to have been originally distributed by Ben Quisenberry (Brandywine, Stump of the World, other oldies but goodies.) So it has a boring name, but it tastes good. It is an excellent producer.




.
.
tomLemonDropLemon Drop tomLeD
This light yellow cherry won tangiest at the 2015  Buffalo~Niagara Tomato TasteFest and rightly so. It has a wonderful sweet tart flavor.  So those of you that do not like the super sweet cherries, I recommend this one. The plants are good vigorous producers.  The grower that first gave the seeds to SSE said it was a spontaneous mutation on a branch of a Snow White cherry.




.
.
Lime Green Salad POT tomLGS
This dwarf variety makes tasty green saladette sized tomatoes. Saladette means too big to be a cherry, but too small to be a regular small globe tomato. (Sometimes places try to add that moniker on to small paste types, but I don’t consider those salad tomatoes.) It has great flavor for a compact plant. It is a newer OP variety bred by Tom Wagner who also bred the famous Green Zebra. It was originally named ‘Green Elf’.

Little Lucky tomLLu
Luscious Little Lucky runs through my mind when I eat this tomato. I just love it. It is juicy with phenomenal flavor. It is a small yellow globe, a bit variable in shape sometimes looking like a small beefsteak or heart, with a red blossom end blush and you will find red in the core. Craig LeHoullier, heirloom tomato connoisseur, had an accidental cross of Brandywine with and unknown variety. From that he developed this variety and Lucky Cross. It is late season tomato, but it produces just in time that I get a nice amount of tomatoes before the weather go south. Those of you to the north might have too short of a season for this variety. Potato leaf.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAburpeesLongKeeper1892Long Keeper tomLoK
I grew this tomato to see what it was like and eh is how I feel. My friend Gary Millwood wrote a long post on Dave’s Garden about storage tomatoes including a good description of Long Keeper. Please CLICK HERE to read it. I had quite a few fruits off my plants, but I didn’t take any pics except for the ones that happen to be in a bushel photo after being picked. The scan to the right from the Burpee 1892 catalog has the story (click to enlarge) of how this variety came to be. 15 seeds for $1.25.

Lucky Cross tomLuck
This is the big sister to Little Lucky. It is another tomato with exceptional flavor. The large bicolor beefsteaks are yellow with a pink blush. The pink blush spreads as the tomato ripens. Unfortunately for northern growers, it is late to mature. I have a love hate relationship with this tomato because of this.  The phenomenal flavor keeps it on my grow list. Potato leaf.

tomLuckyTigerLucky Tiger tomLuT
This is another tomato bred by my tomato friend, Fred Hempel (breeder of Blush.) I got to try it this past summer in Kansas City, MO while attending my friend James Worley’s tomato tasting party. I was impressed by the flavor. Fred knows what he is doing.Photo courtesy of James Worley.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAtomMagliaRosa2Maglia Rosa POT tomMRo
This is another tomato developed by my friend Fred Hempel of Baia Nicchia Farm/Artisan Seeds. Click Here to read his blog post about Maglia Rosa. It was a very good grower here and got lots of sweet fruit. Det.

Malinowy Warszawski tomMaW
I grew this tomato because a customer requested it. The light to medium pink fruits varied from small globes to mini beefsteaks like the one in the photo. It seems to be relatively unknown here though fairly popular over in Poland. If you like beefsteak flavor but want a smaller tomato than this would be a good one for you. I believe the name translates to Pink/Raspberry from Warsaw. They ripened early, and I had a decent amount of fruit. Potato leaf. (The foliage in the photo does not belong to this tomato.)




.
.
Tomato ‘Manitoba tomMan
This variety was developed by the Morden Experimental Farm in Manitoba. So it was bred for short growing seasons. The tomatoes are red globes and weigh a little less than 1/2 lb. It is also resitant Verticillium wilt and Fusarium Wilt. Determinate.

tomMaralingaMaralinga tomMara
This Dwarf Tomato Project cultivar “originated with a cross between an early generation Sleepy selection called Wilpena and Cherokee Purple made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2008 and named Plentiful. Maralinga was selected and named by Patrina. The vigorous regular leaf dwarf plants produce heavy yields of rich brown (yellow skinned black) tomatoes with deep crimson flesh that range between 6-12 ounces. The flavor shares the typical intensity of the best black tomatoes – rich, intense and memorable. Involved – Patrina Nuske Small, Craig LeHoullier, Patrick Sullivan, Lisa Moore, Rich Hawksworth, Shawn Conant, Scott Jacobs, Bill Yoder, and Doug Frank.” This seed was grown and provided by Bill Minkey.

Marcia’s Mystery Black
tomMMB
This tomato is a mistake from another seed company. My friend Marcia who attends the Buffalo~Niagara Tomato Tastefest brought it as Black Sea Man. It is not that. This is the second time I’ve grown this tomato. It is a regular leaf  and seems to be a semi-determinate type. So why am I selling a no name? Well, it is very early for a beefsteak, and it tastes really good. It is not any other black tomato I’ve grown so far, and who knows I or someone else may at some point ID it. Customers have asked about my carrying it as the characteristics of the tomato are more important than the pedigree. The photo is from mid-August in a not so good season as this one was, but it was already producing lots of tomatoes. The cracks on top were because of the torrential rains that happened while the tomatoes were growing. 15 seeds for $1.25.




.
.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMarge’s Polish Pride tomMPP
If you want a tomato that makes lots of big fat beefsteaks, then this one is for you. As you may know I do not grow for size, and this one made big ones with no special care from me.  The pink fruit have a mild sweet beefsteak flavor like Olive Hill.  I had to grow this one because one of my favorite ladies I know is named Marge and was married to a Polish man. It was huge hit at the seed swap in Berea, KY this year (2015.) Everyone saw it and wanted seeds.




.
.
Matina tomMat
This tomato is often mentioned when asked of tomato growers what their favorite early variety is.(Many others will mention Stupice.) The small, 2-4 oz., round red fruit is flavorful and produced in large quantities. This variety originally came from Germany. Potato leaf.




.
.
.
Matt’s Wild Cherry tomMWC
This cherry is a rampant grower and producer of red Cherries just a bit bigger than Currant. They are very sweet. Gary who love sweet ones absolutely loved them. One day as he was shoveling them in his mouth, he said, “Now this is what tomato should taste like. If you could get this flavor in a big tomato, it would be perfect.” Winner of sweetest tomato Buffalo~Niagara Tomato TasteFest 2012. It is originally from Mexico, and reported to be resistant to Late Blight. Don’t confuse this with being resistant to all fungal problems. It still got Early Blight quite readily though it did keep on growing and producing as it is a vigorous grower. Please note, the seeds of this variety are very small and should be almost surfaced sowed for best success.




.
.
Max’s Large Green tomMaxLG
I almost forgot to take a pic of this tomato! It is a good sized beefsteak that is pretty smooth. It stays very green even when ripe compared to other GWR’s. The tomato in my hand was actually overripe and you can see how green it still was.  It came on bit late, and that may be due to the year, but it was till in time for lots of tomatoes. This tomato originates from KY via Roger Postley of Tomatoes, Etc. (he sells tomatoes in Lexington, KY,) that attends the swap in Berea. The taste is very good typical of GWR’s.




.
.
tommicrotomMicro Tom POT tomMicT
This is a very tiny tomato plant! As far as I know, it is the smallest tomato plant out there. It is really cute for pots. The photo is of unripe fruit. They are red at maturity. Besides the plants being tiny, they are quick to make tomatoes. The plants can start to flower before transplanting outdoors. The flavor of the fruit is ok. This one is more for display/conversation piece than eating.
Sorry, now out of stock.
.
.
Moldovan Green aka Green Moldovan tomMoGr
From the assortment of green tomatoes at this year’s (2011) Tomato TasteFest, this one was a favorite of many attendees. It is very good tasting. It is a small green beefsteak that develops an amber blush, but still have a nice green to it when ripe. It was not overly productive for me, but being only a couple seedlings survived this spring’s horrible cold and wet, I can not say it would not perform better in another year. I will definitely grow this one again. You’ll often see this variety listed as Green Moldovan, but it was originally listed in the SSE catalog as Moldovan Green.




.
.
Monkey Ass tomMAs
This tomato has a silly name, but it really is a wonderful tomato! It is a large pink heart, very meaty and sweet. Sometimes the hearts double causing a baboon bottom look to them. I found it productive compared to some other hearts I’ve tried. It also was on the early side of my main crop to ripen every time I’ve grown it. Many customers have reported back that they love this one. Limit ONE per customer.




.
.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMoravsky Div tomMoD
This is a variety from Czechoslovakia. The name means The name means ‘Wonder from Moravia.’ According to my friend Tatiana’s site this is a strain of Stupice, Stupické Polní Rané, which was renamed be a seed company there so it sounds more appealing. The fruit are small round red globes like oversized cherries. Like Stupice it is a good grower. I was late to get it planted but I still got a nice crop of fruit. Potato Leaf.




.
.
Mortgage Lifter tomMLi
This is one of the most famous heirloom tomatoes. Supposedly plants of it were sold to pay off a mortgage  I grew it here, and it was ok.  It is a nice big pretty pink beefsteak. When I visited KY one time, I stopped at a farmer’s market and picked some up, and they tasted great. Tomato flavors can really  be different in other areas. So much depends on the soil and the weather.




.

Mountain Gold tomMGo
This cultivar was developed by the well know tomato breeder Dr. Randy Gardner at the North Carolina State Mountain Horticultural Crops Research Station. The fruits are yellow medium sized slightly flattened globes.  It is resistant to some disease, Verticillum Wilt and Fusarium Wilt races1 & 2. Determinate.




.
.
Mountain Princess POT tomMPr
When first offered in 2009, the seeds of this variety went quick! I was quite surprised; I didn’t know the variety had such a following, but then again this variety is excellent for growing in a large pot or in the ground. The red fruit is quite good for an early variety. They are small to medium size slightly flattened globes. Originally from West Virginia. Determinate.

tomMrsSchlaubaughsFamousStrawberryMrs. Schlaubaugh’s Famous Strawberry tomMSFS
This pink heart was the Best tomato winner of the 2015 Buffalo~Niagara Tomato TasteFest. I got plants from my friend, Rob, and I stuck them back in the corner near the sunchokes so not the best place to really make an evaluation on how well they perform in a garden. I wish I had not done that after how everyone loved the taste. Next time, I will give them a good spot. LIMIT ONE per customer.
Sorry, now out of stock. Hopefully back Nov. 15th 2016.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANeves Azorean Red tomNAR
I sold this tomato seed way back when I first started the company and thought it was about time I regrew it! It is one of the best big red beefsteaks out there. The late Anthony Neves of MA brought a tomato from the Azores with him when he emigrated to the USA. It is a tad late for those of you with super short seasons.




.
.
NSL187099 tomNSL
This a no name tomato from the UDSA seed bank. It a dwarf with a lot of recessive genes. It is not really one to grow for eating, but more for your own breeding projects or conversation piece. The foliage is potato leaf and very rugose as shown in the photo. The cherry tomatoes are green. The foliage in the middle photo by E. Court shows the variegation that expresses itself under cooler environmental conditions. For you tomato breeders, the gene codes this tomato carries are a, c, d, gf, gs, h, marm, mc, r, wf, y.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANoire de Crimee tomNDC
I grew this one years ago and had to regrow again. The fruits of this tomato are small dark globes sometimes a bit oval shaped, just a tad to big to say they are a cherry. The plants are super productive. I don’t find the foliage to be very fungal disease resistant, but they produce very well anyway.  They have that black tomato flavor that I really like. Noire de Crimme translates to Black Krim, but Black Krim is another variety.
This tomato is also listed in 100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden. I picked out quite a few to grow from that book this year (2014,) but they are great varieties. My friend Carolyn has good taste in tomatoes.




.
.
Northern Lights tomNoL
This is a very productive bi-color, and it starts producing quite early too. The tomatoes varied in size from medium to large. They have the typical sweet fruit flavor of bi-colors. This variety was a hit for many customers who purchased it this past year. In a forum discussion it seems some people have a version that is round and may turn fully red red when ripe, that is not correct.
Sorry, had a seedling mishap, and will be out of stock until Fall 2016.
.

Olive Hill tomOH.
Reports from everyone who has grown this variety are the same; it is exceptionally productive. It is a deep pink tomato averaging about 3/4lb. They have a mild sweet flavor. Originally from Kentucky. Potato leaf. (Photo courtesy of Hilde Reineck.)




.
.
Opalka tomOpa
I first grew this paste tomato back in the late 90’s because of the recommendation of my friend Carolyn Male. It is one of her favorite pastes. It did do well for me, and it is much better flavored for fresh eating than many pastes, but I have other favorites. Of course I always say there is a tomato for everyone.




.
.
Orange Minsk tomOMin
This is my new favorite orange beefsteak! and it still is! (2015) It was early, prolific, and tasty; what more could you ask for. If you have been disappointed by orange tomatoes before, I recommend this one. It is originally from Belarus.




.
.
.
Orlovskie Rysaki POT tomOrRy
This is a determinate from Russia. The tomatoes are small red globes. Click Here for a pic of fruit still on a plant. It is an early determinate, and tasty for an early. It does have a zippy taste but is not overly acidic. The name comes from a Russian breed of horses, Orlovski Trotters, maybe because of the quick speed of ripening?




.
.
Pastel Orange Heart tomPOH
This is a nice sized heart. The color is a muted orange when ripe. It is meaty and mild flavored. I unfortunately didn’t get a really nice pic of this variety. History unknown.

Paul Robeson tomPRo
This black tomato comes from Russia. It was named for the famed actor and singer turned activist. The fruit are small beefsteak type fruit. I unfortunately cannot recall the flavor!

Pineapple tomPine
This is a large heirloom bi-color, yellow and red throughout. It is a popular variety having been offered for sale by Gleckler’s long before the internet. It has a mild sweet fruity flavor. 15 seeds for $1.50.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPlan 9 from Outer Space (Not Solar Flare) tomNSF
Ok here’s the deal, I grew this this year (2014) because a friend (Sorellina) grew it the year before (2013) and loved it. She thought it was Solar Flare as she was sent it as such and the person  sending it (2012) thought the same, but it is not. Solar Flare has red flesh and red skin with yellow stripes. As you can see this is yellow fleshed with a hint of red and yellow skin with red stripes. It grew great, and the flavor is fantastic, strongly sweet in a good way. So being so good, I want to share it with you all.
I’ve received a few messages about this tomato, and I appreciate the ideas. One was that it might be Beauty King. I can assure you it is not that as I’ve grown that one and it is on the Tomato Variety Reference Page. Another idea is that it is ‘Lover’s Lunch’ a new Wild Boar Farm cultivar. Problem is this tomato has been grown for a few years before the release of Lover’s Lunch.
I’ve decided on the name ‘Plan 9 from Outer Space’ as the tomato is a mistake, like the movie of the same name, but sure to be a tomato cult classic.




.
.
Polish C tomPolC
I missed taking a photo of this one. (Every year there seems to be one!) It is a typical Polish pink beefsteak. Typical for a Polish beefsteak is not a bad thing as they are all fine varieties as you know if you’ve grown any. It is the finding which ones you love best in you garden that’s key. There must have been an A and a B at some time, but those do not seem to exist any more. Potato Leaf.




.
.
Polish Dwarf POT tomPDw
This is a very cute variety. It is a mini tree type with rugose foliage. It grows to about 2-2 1/2 feet tall. All my plants were in small pots(nursery gallon size) so growth was more restrained to about 1 1/2 feet or so. They stood straight up until they got full of tomatoes and then started to tip from the weight. The tomatoes are small unassuming red globes, but what flavor! They are quite yummy for such an early det. tomato.




.
.
Polish Linguisa tomPLin.
This paste tastes like sauce should taste to me. I find it performs best in cooler weather so if your entire season is in the 90’s, you might not like this one.




.
.
.
Polish Pastel tomPPas
This unusual tomato originated in Australia. The creator of this bi-color paste, John Smarsz, is of Polish decent. The fruit are very sweet with firm meaty flesh. This also variety does well in hot weather producing lots of fruit. Both years I’ve grown this variety, the plants did not get very large so semi-determinate would be the best description for growth. The fruit is variable in size. Photo to the right is of a salsa made with Polish Pastel.




.
.
Prescott tomPres
By customer request. I received seeds for this tomato labeled Prescott Cherry, and I got a bit worried when I saw the tomatoes getting a tad too large for a cherry They are more of a mini plum than cherry, but they are suppose to look like that. Someone incorrectly added cherry to the name. The tomatoes do grow in trusses like cherries and are extremely high yielding. They are pink. 15 seeds for $1.25.

.
.
Prudens Purple tomPruP
This variety has been a mainstay in my garden longer than any other. It is one of the first heirlooms I ever grew, and still one of my favorites. It is a reliable, early for its size, producer for me. The big pink beefsteaks are meaty and flavorful. There is a slight ribbing to the shoulders of the fruit. The plants are very vigorous right from the get-go. Potato leaf.




.
.
Purple Calabash tomPurC
Now this tomato is as purple as a tomato is going to get. Heavy on the ruffles, and unusual tasting, it is a conversation piece. People often disagree on this tomato with its looks and taste. It has been awhile since I grew this one, but I don’t remember disliking it(not like when I grew Early Girl, yuck!) 15 seeds for $1.25.

.
.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPurple Dog Creek tomPDC
This was a favorite of mine in 2015. It produced fruit in a timely fashion and kept them coming until the weather turned. The flavor is really good with depth. This could become the favorite of many a grower. It is a family heirloom from the Dog Creek area of KY. The purple part of the name is is from the color pink which at one time was called purple like Purple Coneflowers are pink. At some point, we switched to calling the color pink. I know it is confusing because some newer named tomatoes have the word purple in them to designate a dark colored tomato like Cherokee Purple.




.
.
Purple Russian aka Ukrainian Purple tomPRus
This is a dark plum tomato. It is good for fresh use as it is not dry like some plums. It has wispy foliage that is typical of heart tomatoes so there must be some of those heart genes in this tomato. This tomato was originally distributed to seed savers in the USA from a lady in the Ukraine which is why I think it sometimes is listed as Ukrainian Purple.




.
.
Red Pear tomRdPr
This is a very old variety known since the 1700’s. It is a cute pear shaped cherry tomato. The plants are large and disease resistant. You will get tons of fruit off of one plant. I can see why this plant was used for canning making preserves and such.Click to enlarge the text from the 1865 copy of Field and Garden Vegetables of America to see a recipe for Red Fig which I was told though similar is not the same tomato, but the info about preserving is still interesting. 15 seeds for $1.25.

.
.
Red Pear (Giant) Abruzzese tomRPGA
There are a few large red pear varieties available out there often with a place in Italy attached to them, Abruzzese, Gransasso, etc. You will sometimes see them sold by their botanical name Piriform. The shape is not the same as the little Red Pear tomatoes which are more Bosc pear shaped. These are more of a pyramidal shape looking like a D’Anjou pear. This is a popular version of this tomato type.




.
.


Red Pear (Giant) Gransasso Strain tomRPGG
I bought this tomato seed some time ago now (pkt. show to the right,) and it is no longer commercially available in the US until now. I’ve been very please with this tomato both times I’ve grown it. It is productive even in in heat and will keep on producing late when much of the foliage has died off as in the middle photo. It tastes really good for a meaty cooking type tomato so it can be used fresh.




.
.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARed Robin POT tomRRob
This is a good plant for small pots or growing indoors over the winter. It grows only 8-12″ tall and produces fruit very fast. The fruit are red cherries and for the size of the plant are fairly large.




.
.
Reisentraube tomRei
This is a very old heirloom red cherry listed in C. Male’s 100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden. The blossoms of this variety are born in abundance which of course make large clusters of tomatoes hence the name when translated to English means giant bunch of grapes. The fruits themselves have pointed ends like the Utyonok tomato shown farther down this page. These cherries taste tomatoey and not sweet, so they are different than most cherries.




.
.
Remy Rouge POT tomRemR
This cherry tomato is from France. (Thank you my friend Tomatoadddict for originally supplying me with seeds.) Remy is a popular name there, and I of course think it is quite a nice name. The small cherries are incredibly sweet. I would dare say sweeter than Sungold, yes, I know, you might think I’m lying, but I’m not. It is not as complex a flavor as Sungold, just super sweet. The very productive plants are quite attractive too. I have had many good reviews of this tomato from customers especially those in the midwest. Semi-Determinate.




.
.
‘Rio Grande’ tomRioG
This paste tomato is growing in popularity. It makes very meaty 4″ tomatoes. It is definitely one for making sauce. Hilde Reineck’s photo of my tomato is a bit smaller than they normally are. Determinate. 15 seeds for $1.25.

.
.
Rose Beauty tomRoB
The name is a bit confusing on this tomato. Rose comes from a family surname, not the color. This tomato originated from John Rose of Richmond,KY. It is a pretty white (pale yellow) tomato that with good care can get quite large as seen in the photo. This tomato is a favorite of my good friend Tara. She requests it every year. It does grow and produce well here for a beefsteak. It also does NOT have the mild sweet fruity flavor profile typical of white beefsteaks. If you closed your eyes you would think it was a red tomato. (Photo courtesy of Hilde Reineck.)




.
.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARosella Purple tomRoP
This was one of the first releases of the Dwarf Tomato Project.  It was a very good grower for me this year (2014.) So it is understandable that this has been a big hit with many people. It is an intensely flavored tomato. I don’t recommend it though if you are a mild sweet fruit tomato lover. My tomato friend, Craig Lehoullier, loves this variety.  Craig is one of the heads of the Dwarf Tomato Project, and he now also an author! He wrote Epic Tomatoes an excellent book for tomato lovers. This cultivar is the result of a cross between Budai Torpe (a small red fruited dwarf) and Stump of the World. It can be grown in a big (5 gall.) pot successfully.

Roughwood Golden Tiger tomRGT
This novelty tomato came through as a real winner. I would of never believed such a bizarre plant and fruit combo would produce high quality tomatoes if I hadn’t seen and tasted them myself. The angora foliage hung down in a floppy way reminding me of a long eared rabbit. The plum shaped tomatoes have orange and red stripes and have fine hairs creating a peach fuzz to the skin. The tomatoes are meaty and very flavorful. They were also born in abundance. Great for sauce. Even though this is often listed as indeterminate, the plants do not get very large so I would say it is more of a semi-determinate. Limit ONE per customer.
Sorry, these went fast! Hopefully back Fall 2016.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARozalinda POT tomRoza
I had to grow this because of my friend with the same name. I’m glad I did because this was a terrific potted plant in 2015. It is very productive lots of small pink globes. I found the flavor was best when the fruit were allowed to deepen in color, so don’t eat them too soon, or you won’t get the full flavor experience. Det.

Rozovyi Flamingo POT tomRozF
Rozovyi means pink in Russian, and I just had to grow a tomato whose name translates to Pink Flamingo for my proud to be tacky, plastic flamingo loving, grandmother. The plants were grown (both times) in a couple gallon pots and were dwarf growing only a couple feet high. They probably will be a bit larger grown in the ground. The fruit are an elongated globe shape (not elongated enough to be called a heart in my opinion) and a light pink, very pink as tomatoes go so the name is fitting. Excellent flavor for a dwarf.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASainte Colombe  tomSCo
These deep pink tomatoes have that earth taste like Box Car Willie, but they also have hint of sweetness too. They are fairly meaty, and I think are good in a sandwiches. It was just a tad slower than the other tomatoes of it size to get producing, but was in no way really late. This photo is from mid August. This variety is from the Sainte-Colombe-sur-l’Hers region of France.
For those of you that remember Gary Millwood, he gave me seeds of this variety (and a few others) the last time I saw him in KY. I think he knew he would never get to growing them. Though it isn’t a KY heirloom, I picked this variety to grow in his memory this year (2014.)




.

San Marzano 2 tomSM2
This is a paste tomato from Italy. There are quite a few variations of San Marzano out there. This one has bigger fruit than some and is indeterminate. Customers have been very happy with it.




.
.
Santa Maria tomSaM
I’m very lucky to introduce this heirloom originally from Italy. A tomato growing friend of mine from Niagara county has been bragging about these huge red pastes from an old Italian immigrant friend of his father in law’s for a few years now. Well he finally showed up with them, and they are big! I grew them this year(2013) and though not as large as my friend’s, they were big and tasty. I was so impressed with the output of the plants. It is a new favorite for me. I like it so much better than Romeo. I have received excellent feed back from many customers who have grown it. It is nice to know people agree with me on this. Limit ONE packet per customer.
Sorry these went fast this year! (internet discussions can do that.) Back in stock Nov. 15th 2016.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASean’s Yellow Dwarf  POT tomSYD
2015 was the year of friends and family names. I picked quite a few for them and this one was for my brother (though he only likes red/pink tomatoes, lol.) As you can see from the plant photo I managed to take, it was a very good producer.  This is the description from the Dwarf Tomato Project, “early-mid season regular leaf Dwarf producing lots of smooth medium sized oblate bright yellow fruit with a very pale yellow interior, with a refreshing, bright delicious flavor.  A member of the Witty family (Budai X Cherokee Green), Sean’s Yellow Dwarf is the collaborative work of Patrina Nuske Small, Lee Newman (who named it after his friend, Sean, in whose garden it first appeared)…”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASerendipity tomSer
I wanted to grow this pretty bicolor tomato because I like the name. It also reminds me of John Cusack from the movie Serendipity, and that as a good a reason as any right? Anyway, it is from an unknown cross of Earl’s Faux  in the garden of Millard Murdock of East Flat Rock, NC which hestabilized.   They are sweet and meaty. Also, they are not related to the variety Striped Serendipity.




.
.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAShchelkovskiy Ranniy aka Shchelkovsky Early POT tomShR
This early Russian determinate variety is a compact grower, great for pots, with small/med. round to oblate red fruit. It is a favorite among northern short season growers. As with many of the early Russian varieties it has a stronger flavor.




.
.
Siberian POT tomSiber
This short but spreading determinate tomato has small red egg shaped fruit. It is early to start producing, and is said to be very tasty for an early. Great for pots. 15 seeds for $1.25.

.
.
Silvery Fir Tree POT tomSFT
The finely dissected foliage of this tomato is unusual and attractive. This plant is listed as a determinate, but it is more like a spreading dwarf in growth. I’ve grown this variety in the flower border as well as pots. The juicy, tart, but still tasty, tomatoes come early and in plentiful quantities. They are red, vary from smooth to lobed, and are a good size for such a small plant.




.
.
Slavic Masterpiece aka Slavyanskiy Shedevr tomSlavM
This variety makes red tomatoes of various sizes. The biggest as in my hand(very dirty from gardening) were almost a lb. and very pretty so I can see where the masterpiece part of the name came from. I was expecting an earlier ripening variety being Slavic, but it was mid-season for me and others that I gave plants to. The tomatoes are acidic tasting.(Got to love the pic with my again dirty gardening hands! I swear they are most often clean, clean as I type this even.) 15 seeds for $1.25.

.
.
solanum humboldtiiOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASolanum humboldtii aka Lycospersicon humboldtii  tomSHum
This tomato species makes tons and tons of pretty pink cherries, and they seemed pretty crack proof. The flavor reminded me of Reisentraube from when I grew that way back when. It is a full spreading plant that wants to grow out and not up. It not easy to train up a regular tomato cage, and I think it i better to just give it room and let it grow.




.
.
Soldacki tomSold
I first grew this pink beefsteak after reading 100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden by Carolyn Male. I liked the tangy but sweet, complex flavor description. I’m happy to say, I agree with the book. Though contrary to the book, my yields haven’t been overly high. It seems each year I decide to grow this tomato, the weather is cold and wet, and it doesn’t seem to like that. I still like growing this tomato because I do enjoy the flavor so much, and I bet in better weather there would be more fruit. Polish heirloom. Potato leaf. Update~ 2012 was a hot year, and as I surmised, it did perform way better than the cold wet years!




.
.
Sophie’s Choice POT tomSoCh.
This tomato is a dwarf sized favorite of mine. It is actually a determinate, just a very short and spreading one. In a pot or in the ground, it is a little workhorse. It produces red, large for the plant, fruit early and keeps on going. Fruit tasty and not overly acidic tasting like many early tomatoes. It grows great in pots. (The left photo is an early one from last season of the tomatoes developing. The other is courtesy of Hilde Reineck.)




.
.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASouthern Night large POT tomSoN
I was given seed for this variety from my friend Karen Golden who owns Michigan Heirlooms, a company that sells plants in the Highland, Michigan area, I’m always looking for new Determinates to try, and I know some of you are too. As is typical of most black/brown tomatoes, it has a very good flavor. Potato Leaf.




.
.
.
Spear’s Tennessee Green tomSTG
This variety is a small beefsteak with typical green tomato flavor. It has an amber blush when ripe. If you have got this far in reading my tomato descriptions, you know I love the GWRs (Green When Ripes.) If you have never tried one, you should be adventurous and pick one to try! (Doesn’t have to be this one.)




.
.
Stump of the World tomSTOTW.
This is my favorite variety though I sort of hate to say that. What if you buy it and hate it?! It is sort of like Brandywine, but a bit stronger flavored and juicier. The best analogy I can come up with is Brandywine is a peach, and Stump is a nectarine. So if you like sweet peaches best, you’ll like Brandywine better. If you like zippier nectarines better, you’ll like Stump more. For a beefsteak, it is on the smaller  size(averaging 12-16 oz.,) but sometimes it makes larger ones. They are a deep pink almost looking red. The plants performs very well here. It won best tasting tomato at the 2008 Buffalo~Niagara Tomato TasteFest. Potato leaf.




.
.
StupicetomStu
This is a well known heirloom early tomato. I grew it years ago myself. It gets loaded with large cherry sized fruit. A lot of people love the flavor and will tell you it is the best early. I remember them being acidic. Originally from Czechoslovakia. Potato leaf.




.
.
Sugar BeefsteakSugar Beefsteak tomSugB
This tomato with regular leaves seems to have originated from Sand Hill Preservation. Being a good producer, it is a favorite of my friend Rob, and that is how I’ve come to know it. It has red fruit of variable size.




.
.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASungold aka Sun Gold F1 Hybrid TomSunG.
This tomato has won sweetest Buffalo-Niagara TasteFest a couple times. It is always talked about. Some love it for its sweetness. Others think it is unnatural for a tomato. Either way it does prove that hybrids can have a lot of flavor. It starts producing ripe fruit very early and keeps on delivering all season. It is one of the most popular hybrids. Many heirloom fans grow this tomato as it proves hybrid does not always equate to a pretty but tasteless fruit. Sungold is a hybrid from Takii in Japan. 10 seeds for $1.50.




.
.
tomsweetaperitifOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASweet Aperitif tomSwAp
My friend Rob gave me these to try and I’m sure glad he did. The little red cherries were super sweet. The fruit trusses were not one single raceme, but split in two as you can see in the green fruit plant photo. Other plants may do this but I found it to be an unusual trait. Very productive.




.
.
Sakata Seed AmericaSweet Million F1 tomSwMi
This is a very popular hybrid cherry. Like Sungold, it was bred for flavor and garden performance breaking the hybrid flavor stereotype. It makes large tresses of red fruit. It is suppose to be crack resistant for those of you who have issues with that.
Just a note as I noticed that if you do a google for photos, there’s a site that comes up claiming this tomato is Monsanto related. It is not. The breeder is Sakata in Japan. The photo is from Sakata. 10 seeds for $1.50.

This Dwarf Tomato Project variety “originated with a cross between an early generation Sleepy selection called Wilpena and Cherokee Purple made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2008 and named Plentiful. Tanunda Red was selected and named by Patrina. The vigorous regular leaf dwarf plants produce excellent yields of smooth oblate red fruit that range from 4-10 ounces.

This Dwarf Tomato Project cultivar “originated with a cross made between Dwarf Wild Fred and Brandywine by Vince Lavallo in 2008 and named Tasty. TastyWine was selected and named by Vince. Essentially a dwarf growing version of Brandywine, the vigorous potato leaf dwarf plants produce plenty of pink smooth oblate tomatoes that range from 6-12 ounces.

Tigerella tomTiger
This tomato is a small red globe with orange stripes. It looks like Green Zebra’s sister. Its origins are in England where it is very popular. It performs well in the garden there which makes me think it may be a very good one for coastal gardens where the summers are more moderate in temperature. 15 seeds for $1.25.

.
.
Tigrovy (sometimes known as Tiger-Like) tomTig
The Russian name Tigrovy translates to Tiger-like and is so named because of the stripes on the fruit. I prefer to keep the names of tomatoes in their native tongue if they came to me that way. I believe it helps to avoid confusion later on. If you look at other country’s catalogs, they do not rename our tomatoes. Anyway, all that aside. This is a nice little tomato! The flavor is balanced between sweet and tangy. They started producing fairly early, and in good quantities. A customer down in TX this past year sent me updates and pics. It performed amazingly well down there, so it does do well in heat.
Sorry, now out of stock.
.
.
tomtinytim2Tiny Tim POT tomTTim
This variety stays pretty small. It can be grown in a small pot. Mine grew about 8″ or so in small pots. I’ve read they can get a bit bigger in the ground to about 18″. The tomatoes are red cherries that grow in clusters. They ripen very early. 15 seeds for $1.25.

.
.
Tom’s Yellow Wonder tomTYW
My tomato growing friend, Rob K., grew the monster sized fruit show in the photo to the right. Rob is known for growing large fruit. Tom’s Yellow Wonder is normally a big pale yellow/white beefsteak often with a pink blush at the base when ripe, and obviously with lots of love can grow exceptionally large. The origins of this variety come from seed saved from another tomato friend, Tom M. of NJ.(Right photo courtesy of Rob K.)




.
.
Tumbler, Cherry POT tomTum
This is an OP version of the well known hybrid. Most tomatoes are floppy sprawlers without support, but they naturally grow upwards at first where Tumbler  just spreads. So it is a very good variety to grow in hanging baskets where the branches can hangover the sides. Determinate.




.
.
Turks Muts tomTMu
This variety has small ruffled black fruit. The varietal name comes from the Dutch and means Turkish Turban. They sort of remind me of a small Purple Calabash. The fruit came on strong early. The flavor is also strong, acidic. Potato Leaf. 15 seeds for $1.25.

Uluru OchreUluru Ochre1OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAUluru Ochre tomUOc
This a Dwarf Tomato Project release. I grew it this year, and think it is one of the ugliest things I’ve ever grown (though others disagree,) BUT the flavor was fantastic. This is the description from the DTP, “The vigorous dwarf regular leaf plants are relatively compact, quite early to produce and prolific. Producing a good yield of medium to medium to large sized (6-12 ounces) oblate uniquely colored tomatoes that are essentially the first “black/orange” we’ve seen – orange flesh with green overtones, and somewhat amber/orange/green in appearance when whole. The flavor can be a bit variable season to season, but at it’s best, is absolutely delicious. This variety originated with a cross between Orange Heirloom and Rosella Purple.” The photos to the left are from Patrina Nuske who also named this variety. LIMIT ONE per customer.




A request from the breeder of Uluru Ochre, Patrina Nuske Small:
This new dwarf variety you have purchased is very unique due to its unusual colouring, and I would like to make sure it can be openly shared and made available to anyone wanting to grow or use it for breeding in the future.  I would hate to see it used in any patent applications which would prevent other people being able to save or share its seeds, and in today’s world this is increasingly a problem, in fact it’s a huge problem.  I would therefore like Uluru Ochre to be associated with the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI) and for packets to include the following pledge whenever people sell or share its seeds, also asking the person receiving the seeds to do the same.
The OSSI Pledge – http://osseeds.org/
You have the freedom to use these OSSI seeds in any way you choose. In return, you pledge not to restrict others’ use of these seeds or their derivatives by patents, and to include this pledge with any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives.
Thanking you on behalf of seed and food security for the future!  Patrina.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAVF Gardener tomVFG
I picked up a pack of seeds for this variety a couple years ago while visiting the gardens at Cornell. So this is from their breeding program. It is an OP cultivar with resistance to Verticillium wilt and Fusarium wilt hence the VF of the name. It though is not resistant at all to Early Blight or Septoria. So if the wilts are your problem, try it, but if the fungal issues are your problem, it might not be the best for you. The tomatoes are in general small round globes, but I got a few medium ones as shown too. The flavor was good for a red. Plants seemed to be semi-determinate.




.
.
Variegated tomVari
This novelty variety will get attention in the veggie garden with its strongly variegated leaves. The fruit are small round red globes. It sometimes mistakenly called ‘Splash of Cream’ but the proper name is ‘Variegated’ or ‘Variegata’. 15 seeds for $1.25.

.
.
Victorian Dwarf POT tomVD
This dwarf as with all the dwarfs I’ve tried are little work horses pumping out a lot of tomates. It is almost like they are trying to prove their worth as a plant. The red tomatoes are slightly flattened globes with a few ribs. As with all the dwarfs this season, I grow these in pots so I can’t comment on garden planted size. In the pots they are about 2 feet tall.




.
.
VR Moscow POT tomVRMos
This tomato was developed by the Utah State College in Logan, Utah and the USDA in 1952. It was bred using Moscow as a parent and is very similar, but it has resistance to Verticillium Wilt. It is a determinate with round red tomatoes. 15 seeds for $1.25.

.
.
Wapsipinicon Peach tomWapsP
This is another customer request grow out. It is an old variety from 1890 and originally was known as ‘White Peach’. It somehow got the name Wapsipinicon after a river in Iowa later on. It is a fuzzy skinned variety.The walls of the fruit are thin so the ripe fruit feels very soft. $15 seeds for $1.25.

Willamette POT tomWill
This is a good determinate  tomato for those with wilt problems. It is a  red globe with nice flavor.  It was early for me and produced all season. It was bred at Oregon State University by the late Dr. Tex Frazier.
Resitant to Fusarium Wilt, Race 1 and Verticillium Wilt.




.
.
Whippersnapper POT tomWhip
I was very happy with these little plants this year. Very early they got loaded with very pretty bright pink oval cherries and kept on producing all season. For a small determinate, I found the fruit tasty. From what I see on the internet, there are two versions – a round cherry and the oval grape tomato shape. I do believe the oval which I have is the correct version.




.
.
tomwhitecherryWhite Cherry tomWhC
The name of this cultivar isn’t exciting, but the tomatoes are sweet and are produced prolifically as typical of most cherries. 15 seeds for $1.25.

.
.

Yellow Brandywine tomYBr
I wasn’t expecting much from this tomato. Well I was expecting great flavor, but since regular old Brandywine is very stingy with the tomatoes for me I thought I might not get any to taste. So I was pleasantly surprised at getting fruit. The plants still didn’t have tons, but at least I got fruit and in a timely manner. The fruit averaged about a lb. and were very pretty as you can see from the pic, not misshapen as it is sometimes described. (I do wonder if I have the Platfoot Strain, but of course I can not know that unless I grow them again together.) The flavor of course was very good. Potato Leaf.

Yellow Pear tomYP.
This very old heirloom, the yellow version of Red Pear, produces copious quantities of miniature pear shape fruit. The flavor is sweet and mild. (Photo courtesy of Hilde Reineck.) 15 seeds for $1.25.

.
.
.
Yellow Stuffer tomYSt
I thought this would be a good one to carry. It makes yellow fruit that look like a bell pepper. They are hollow inside like a pepper and are good for stuffing. At one of the Buffalo~Niagara Tomato Tastefest, my friend Julianna brought yellow tomatoes with Greek stuffing. They were a beautiful side dish and tasty! 15 seeds for $1.25

    Hello Remy!
    Thank you for my seeds! I learned how to pollinate them this year with an electric toothbrush and have a bumper crop:) Here’s a rundown on how things produced this year:

    CHRNKOVIC- Excellent producer, sweet flavor, beautiful dark pink, excellent sandwich tomato, early.

    ChOCOLATE STRIPE- Stunning mahogany interior!! Excellent, sweet flavor, prolific, meaty, great sandwich tom.
    BEAUTY KING-Gigantic 2 lb’er. Intensely fruity + sweet that reminds me of Kellogg’s Breakfast. Great by itself.
    FANTOME DU LAOS- So pretty it glows! Beautiful ivory exterior and interior. Thick walls, not sweet and medium tart. Heavy producer. Good for salads, etc.
    LITTLE LUCKY- Holy cow! Words cannot describe how potent this gem is! On a scale of 1-10 for sweetness and acidity, it’s an 11 in both. Some have pointy bottoms but not all.

    Maybe you can tell me best 5 most productive and earliest tomatoes you have?

  • remy says:

    MJ, that is difficult to say. There are too many varieties. It would be much easier for you to pick out ones that you are interested in and then send an email to SampleSeeds@yahoo asking if they are suitable.

    Hi
    We purchased the Heirloom Mix for our 2015 tomato season and it was great. There was more than enough seeds to start and share with family. Also the surprises we got were delirious.
