The most popular garden vegetable in America, and most people don't know there's more than a half dozen types.  We apologize for the lack of photos–where possible we've linked external sites that have further descriptions and photos.  Watch the description categories and you'll get most of the information you need.  We're working on getting photos in, but probably won't make much progress until after sales are over for the season this year.

  • Named for the man who maintained the variety throughout his life, not the breakfast food company.  This flavorful, juicy tomato can be late bearing, like all of the large beefsteak varieties, but produces a nice set of massive fruit that are some of my all time favorites.

  • The tomatoes that remain green when ripe taste remarkably similar to the other colors, except for a certain spicy note that's hard to describe.  Around here, these form an amber blush which makes it easier to tell when ripe, but like all tomatoes it's best to test for firmness as well.  Don't eat it before it softens or you'll miss out on the great...

  • More flavorful than most plum (paste) tomatoes, Opalka is also skinnier, oddly shaped, and a bit more temperamental.  However, it's one of the few plum types that could be recommended for eating fresh.  Always a customer favorite.

  • Imported by a UN worker in Kosovo, this is one of the most productive large tomato varieties that I've tested in the Mid-Columbia.  The meaty, flavorful tomatoes are produced on prolific, but drooping branches in all kinds of weather, and they make excellent sauce when they're not used up on sandwiches.  Highly recommended.

  • A bright taste of sunshine, this sweet, fruity cherry tomato is the only hybrid tomato variety we normally offer.  The plant is vigorous and the fruit sets well, though it is prone to cracking in wet conditions.  The fruit gets sweeter and less fruity the longer it stays on the vine.  Customer favorite.

  • This is a great introduction to purple tomatoes for those who aren't familiar with them, and has a well-deserved reputation for good quality fruit.  The flavor is always good, and it's a reliable producer of mid-size tomatoes that's well-adapted to many conditions.

  • A product of the Cross-hemisphere dwarf breeding project, this compact plant is amazingly vigorous.  It produces a regular size fruit with a similar flavor to Cherokee Purple, though with a greater tendency toward ruffled fruit.

  • Yellow grape-shaped cherry tomato without the hard crunchiness of grape varieties.  Heavy producer of small fruit with a balanced flavor.  The plant puts more energy into producing flowers than foliage.

  • One of the best-flavored of the white tomatoes, and also one of the whitest in our test gardens, as most whites tend to be yellow inside and develop a strong blush on the skin in our climate.  Whites tend to have a very mild flavor with low perceived acidity.

  • Brandywine is probably the most acclaimed heirloom tomato variety available.  It is also the most confused, in that there are so many crosses and similarly-named strains out there that it can be hard to tell what you're getting.  This variety, Sudduth's Strain, is the one which kicked off all of the attention a few decades ago, and the closest thing we...

  • Brandywine is probably the most acclaimed heirloom tomato variety available.  It is also the most confused, in that there are so many crosses and similarly-named strains out there that it can be hard to tell what you're getting.  This variety is a highly praised strain of the Yellow Brandywine, which is better adapted to our area than the more famous...

  • Brandywine is probably the most acclaimed heirloom tomato variety available.  It is also the most confused, in that there are so many crosses and similarly-named strains out there that it can be hard to tell what you're getting.  This variety is an offspring of the Yellow Brandywine, produces red fruit, and is better adapted to our area than the more...
