Buy TOMATO Seeds L-P

tomatotable

  • All Tomatoes are OP(Open Pollinated) and/or Heirloom with a minimum of 15 seeds per packet unless stated otherwise.
  • All tomato packets are $1.75 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, but I wonder about that.




.
.
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.

tomLuckyTigertomato lucky tigerLucky Tiger tomLuT
This is another tomato bred by my tomato friend, Fred Hempel of Artisan Seeds (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.

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. 15 for $1.50.

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 huge 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 my display tomato and wanted seeds.




.

tomato mariatomato mariaMaria tomMar
I don’t know much about the origin of this tomato. The seed came from SandHill Preservation and all the description says is “Early, Determinate, oblate, 10 oz., red fruits.” The fruits keep coming though so I would classify it as semi-det. as the fruit keep coming til the weather turns. So it is very productive, and they have a good mixed flavor too.

Marianna's PeaceMarianna’s Peace tomMaP
This pink beefsteak has an infamous history. Tomatofest back in 2002 sold his Marianna’s Peace seeds at 6 seeds for $20! which was and still is astronomical in price. The owner of Tomatoville got seeds and with the help of Darrel Jones of Select Plants, he got them grown out and then sent out literally hundreds of Marianna’s Peace seed packets for free. This made the price drop to a reasonable amount. Tomatofest of course says the price was so high being the seed were in such short supply. They have a moving story of where this tomato came from and how it was named. It is suppose to be from the Czech Republic. Regardless, it is now a favorite of many growers, and a customer insisted I should give it a try. It is a very good tomato. Production was ok for me. It was quite hot early this summer, and I had more late tomatoes on it because of the cooler morning temps so in a normal moderate temp growing season, it probably would perform better. Potato Leaf.

tomato-marvel-stripeMarvel Stripe tomMSt
This is a large pretty bi-color beefsteak said to be originally from Oaxaca, Mexico. There is a strong starburst pattern on the bottoms of the fruit. Though the photo by Curtis Jackson of Renaissance Farms shows fairly smooth fruit, they can have strong pleating if conditions are right. Click Here to see ribbed fruit at Dave’s Garden. I find that characteristic with many cultivars is variable with the weather. Strong ribbing or not, it is a beauty. I don’t know if it is related to Oaxacan Jewel which is also a bi-color.




.

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. 15 seeds for $1.50.




.
.
Mexico tomatoMexico tomMex
This pink beefsteak is tasty. It was the winner of Best Overall Tomato at the Buffalo~Niagara Tomato TasteFest 2016. The fruit average about a lb. but they can get quite large. These are often contestants for largest tomatoes at the taste fests. This tomato’s story is that it was brought into the U.S. by a Mexican family that settles the Midwest.

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. Limit TWO per customer.




.
.
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.
Sorry, now out of stock. Hopefully back again Fall 2017.
.

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. 15 seeds for $1.50.




.
.
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.

NSL 187099 tomNSL
This a no name tomato from the UDSA seed bank. It is 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.
Limit ONE per person.

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 Crimee 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 has been a hit for many customers who have purchased it in previous years.
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. Update! I found out form Tatiana’s Tomatobase site that “There is also another tomato with a very similar name – Northern Light (single) (a.k.a Severnoe Siyanie in Russian). It is a small red tomato from Russia, and it is not related to Northern Lights tomato.” So that solves the mystery.




.

tomato opal's homesteadOpal’s Homestead tomOpH
There’s not a lot of info out there about this cultivar. I found this, “Small to Medium red fruit irregularly shaped slightly flattened, very good flavor, productive, old Kentucky strain.” from a description my friend Gary Millwood wrote some time ago. My friend Marsha E. of FL gave me seeds a few years ago as she likes this one, and I figured I should try it. It is a very productive red fruited semi-det. The size varies but most were like the tipped fruit in the photo.




.
.
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! It was early, prolific, and tasty; what more could you ask for. If you have been disappointed by orange tomatoes before, I recommend trying this one. It is originally from Belarus.
Sorry, now out of stock. Hopefully back Fall 2017.
.

.
.
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?




.
.
P&J Ellis tomatoP and J Ellis tomPJE
This pink tomato was the taste winner of the year (2016) for me. I originally received seed of this one from my friend James who runs the Kansas City tomato tasting at the Local Pig there so I figured it must be good, and it is! I unfortunately planted them in a crummy spot so they did not fair well. They are a definite regrow in better conditions. (I know I seem to do this often to new tomatoes, but I don’t want to give up good real estate to a clunker so new tomatoes often get the crummy spots.) The tomato is not related to the Polish Ellis tomato. Being a rare one, there is a LIMIT of ONE per customer.




.
.
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. 15 seeds for $1.50.




.
.
.
Paul Robeson tomPRob
This black tomato comes from Russia. It was named for the famed actor and singer turned activist. Click Here for a bio. The fruit are generally 6-12 oz. oblate fruit. It is a favorite of many people with its mix of flavors.

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. Many customers are very happy with this one.
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.
Sorry, now out of stock. Hopefully back Fall 2017.

plate de chateuarenardPlate de Chateaurenard tomPDC
This is a very productive red tomato from France. They are medium sized tomatoes that look beefsteak like. The flavor is a good mix of sweet and tart with an earthy undertone. I’m postive this will become a favorite for some people.




.
.
.
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 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. 15 seeds for $1.50.
