Yellow Stuffer (Heirloom). Indeterminate. (Click here to see how I cooked these delicious tomatoes in August!)
Click here to see how we cooked them in September (Italian Stuffed Tomatoes recipe).
Yellow tomatoes, shaped like bell peppers, are perfect for stuffing. Vigorous vines produce loads of 3 to 4-lobed fruits.
Another description: Gourmet Yellow Stuffer Tomato:
Resembles a golden pepper with seeds clustered near the top. Core removes easily for stuffing. Try stuffing with a mixture of spinach and cheese, or any other mixture. Australian origin, fruits keep for an extended period when refrigerated. Indeterminate, 85 days from transplant.
Yellow Cherry Tomato (Heirloom). Indeterminate.
These tomatoes were good, nice and sweet, and one of the earliest to ripen for us!
Silvery Fir Tree Tomato (Heirloom). Determinate.
Along with our Yellow Cherry, our first to ripen in 2009, as advertised!
Distinctive carrot-like silvery-gray foliage on compact 24" plants. Heavy crops of round, slightly flattened 3-3½" red fruits. Extremely decorative variety that is a real eye-catcher. Does extremely well in hanging baskets or on patios. Determinate, 58 days from transplant.
Black Sea Man Tomato (Heirloom). Determinate. (So cool looking - I'm excited about this one.)
These were neat! Tasted like a typical acidic red tomato but looked so distinctive!
Small plants with medium-sized deep brown fruits, rich flavor. Looks incredibly odd when blanched and peeled, revealing skeletonlike veins under the skin. Potato leaf, but determinate, 75 days from transplant
Pineapple Tomato (Heirloom). Indeterminate.
Unfortunately, this year was such a bad year for tomatoes. Almost all of our larger tomatoes failed (it was cold & rainy all summer). The few of these we tasted were delicious. Sweet & mild.
Mortgage Lifter Tomato (Heirloom). Indeterminate.
Again, most of our large tomatoes failed this year. We had a few of these biggies!
HEIRLOOM Indeterminate. The story is that a gentleman named Radiator Charlie bred this variety with crossed between German Johnson, Beefsteak, and other varieties. He was able to earn enough selling the seed to pay off his mortgage during the Depression. The very large, pink skinned, sweet tomatoes.
Isis Candy Tomato (Heirloom). Indeterminate.
These ripened later than our other cherry-sized (yellow) tomatoes. They were incredibly sweet and they seemed to keep producing after almost all the other varieties succumbed to blight.
Martinos Roma Tomato (Heirloom). Determinate.
Great! Used in all of our canning! Made great sauces & salsas.
Italian heirloom. Mild-flavored meaty productive paste tomato with pretty rugose (puckered) foliage. Very heavy set of 2-3 ounce fruits perfectly suited for making sauce, salsa and paste. Extremely reliable variety for home or market. Has a tendency to fall off the vine when fully ripe. Rugose, 75 days from transplant.
Brandywine Tomato (Heirloom). Indeterminate.
Another of our large tomatoes, which failed from too much rain.
First introduced in 1885 by Amish farmers in Chester County, Pennsylvania, the large vines produce fruit that are 8–12 ounces and deep red in color. Very productive, excellent taste. Indeterminate, 80 days.
Saucey Tomato (Heirloom). Determinate.
These were also good. Seemed resistant to the blight which killed off the larger tomato plants. Great in sauces & salsa.
(Saucey is a Roma-type tomato)
Cherokee Purple Tomato (Heirloom). Indeterminate.
Again, failed with too much rain. I did have a couple. Beautiful color, good taste.
Unique dusty rose color. Flavor rivals Brandywine, extremely sweet. Productive plants, large crops of 12 oz. fruits. Indeterminate, 80 days from transplant
Moonglow Tomato (Heirloom). Indeterminate.
Best of show 2009!! These tomatoes will definitely be grown in my garden for many years to come. Kept right on growing, despite the terrible tomato weather. Taste was superb. Sweet. Awesome.
Medium-sized bright orange fruits. Solid orange meat, few seeds and wonderful flavor. One of our favorites since we first grew it in 1996. Indeterminate, 80 days from transplant.
Green Husk Tomatillo (Heirloom). Indeterminate (?)
Awesome as well. Great for my Salsa Verde recipe . These were also resistant to the blight & bad tomato weather. They kept producing right up until frost. No problems with bugs, slugs, or animals taking bites from them because of the outer husk!!! A winner. Has definitely earned a permanent spot at the farm.
Mexican husk tomato, prolific bushy plant 3-4' tall and across. Green 2" sweet fruits are ripe when the fruits burst through husks. Blended with hot peppers to make traditional Mexican green sauce. 90 days from transplant.
Jetsonic Hybrid Tomato (Hybrid. Only hybrid I'm growing.). Indeterminate.
I may have had a few of these. The seed company sent them with my order, for free, otherwise I would never have grown a hybrid in my heirloom-only gardens.
Early Jalapeno Pepper (Heirloom)
These just kept producing and producing. We were swimming in jalapenos this year. We grew almost 100 jalapeno plants at the farm! That meant thousands of jalapenos. Lovely. Low maintenance. Great for Salsa Verde, pickling, etc.
King Of The North Pepper (Sweet Bell Pepper). Heirloom.
Great! Low maintenance, heavy producer.
Golden Calwonder Pepper (Sweet Bell Pepper). Heirloom.
Delicious, sweet flavor. These were great.
Alma Paprika Pepper (Sweet, non-bell pepper). Heirloom.
Neat. Cute. That's about all I can say. I didn't do a lot with them. They were just too cute to pass in the seed catalog.
Napolean Sweet Pepper (sweet non-bell). Heirloom.
Very sweet! The sweetest pepper I've ever tasted. Delicious! Very good stuffed.
Sweet Chocolate Pepper (Sweet bell). Heirloom.
These were awesome. Great in chiles rellanos.
Volcano Pepper. Mildly Hot. (Hybrid. Only hybrid pepper I'm growing).
Good. We canned them with our jalapenos. Freebie from seed company.
