  • Gold Nugget - The round to slightly oval cherry tomatoes have a deep-yellow color. The flavor is well-balanced and delicious, and most of the early fruits are seedless. Healthy, compact plants with a concentrated early set. Determinate & heirloom.

  • Little Napoli - A great performer in containers, this is one of the only patio-type Romas available, and it has disease resistance to Fusarium Race 1 and Verticilium for better garden success. The small plants yield large amounts of tasty paste tomatoes, so gardeners can actually harvest enough at one time to make a batch of salsa or sauce.

  • Bobcat - Picture-perfect, smooth-skinned fruit have firm, meaty, gloriously red flesh and a classic tomato shape. These impressive 10 ounce slicers load heavily on powerful, strapping, determinate plants. Quick to mature, you can be enjoying Bobcat earlier in the season than most other varieties of this type.

  • Galahad - Galahad's compact, determinate plants produce buckets of shiny, crimson, squat, 3 inch, globe-shaped fruit that's juicy, sweet, meaty and crack resistant. We are equally impressed with the crop's large, picture-perfect fruit, disease resistance and succulent flavor.

  • Green Zebra - Always a ravishing table presentation, the 1 ½-2 ½ inch fruit have glowing green skin overlaid with olive and gold mottled streaks. Sure to impress when sliced on a plate and intermingled with orange or black-fleshed tomatoes. Indeterminate plants just keep producing these breathtaking fruit throughout the season.

  • Taxi - The best yellow variety for short season areas. Bright yellow 4 to 6 oz. fruits are smooth and blemish free. Flesh is meaty, mild and acid free. Excellent fresh for salads, sandwiches or adds a nice splash of color to salsas. Heavy yielder over a 3 to 4 week period.

  • Gill's All Purpose - A cross between Wasatch Beauty and Pepper tomato, Gill’s All Purpose was bred in 1947 by the Gill Brothers Seed Company in Portland, Oregon. Outstanding yields of 3–3 ½ inch deep red fruit with rich tomato flavor. Determinate plants are quite disease resistant.

  • Orange Paruche - The quintessential flavor of summer is captured in these sweet and flavorful fruit. This Indeterminate excels in productivity with astonishing quantities of brilliant, glowing orange fruit that are irresistible, and vitamin packed.

  • Chocolate Sprinkles - As tempting as its well-deserved name, Chocolate Sprinkles is the perfect balance of flavor, appearance, yield, and disease resistance. These bite-sized tomatoes have striking, forest green streaks over deep coppery-red and a delightfully sweet taste. Indeterminate plants produce abundant, thick trusses of the scrumptious, crack-resistant fruit.

  • Juliet - Small red plum known for being both delicious and easy to grow. These AAS award-winning grape tomatoes are very much like mini Roma Tomatoes – full of flavor and perfect to enjoy either fresh or in a cooked recipe. The indeterminate high-yielding hybrid plant puts on clusters of 1-2 dozen tomatoes at a time.

  • Tommy Toe - Heirloom from the Ozark Mountains. Excellent in salads or for juices, 1/2 to 1" fruits are smooth, mild, glossy red and range from round to oval in shape. Resistant to Black Rot. Prolific reseeder. Indeterminate.

  • Sungold - The fruity or tropical flavor is a big hit with everyone who tastes it. The bright apricot-orange round globes are 1 ¼ inches across and are borne on long, 10–15 fruit, grape-like trusses. The vigorous indeterminate vines produce equally well in the field and the early spring greenhouse.

  • San Marzano - The granddaddy of the San Marzano family of sauce tomatoes. This one still ranks among the richest roma types we’ve trialed and is high in sugars, pectin, and flavor for the very best in sauces, pastes, and soups. The rosy red fruit are meaty and thick-walled, reaching up to 5 inches long, and gather on the indeterminate plants in thick clusters.

  • Black Prince - A Russian heirloom that is one of the sweetest tomatoes we have evaluated in its size class. The opalescent rose fruit have darkened shoulders, are 3–4 inches wide, thin-skinned, and quite soft. Indeterminate and very vigorous. Seed from a seed saver in the former Soviet Union.

  • Old German - Indulge in one of these treasured heirlooms and experience the true meaning of pleasure! Routinely weighing in at over a pound and a half, it was one of the largest fruits in our trials. It is both delicious and beautiful with succulent, meaty fruit and golden streaked, reddish skin. Indeterminate.

  • Heirloom Marriage - These luscious, ruby-red slicers are the result of a cross of Brandywine and Costoluto Genovese, two of our most delicious heirloom varieties. This fusion produces beautiful, slightly squat, globe-shaped tomatoes with the most delectable flavor. The indeterminate plants are ready to harvest two weeks before either of the parent plants.

  • Jaune Flamme - A gorgeous study in contrasts, with bright orange skin surrounding reddish flesh that is a rare find in heirloom tomatoes!

Heavy production all season long. Originated outside of Budapest, Hungary, around 1900. Indeterminate & heirloom.

  • Trophy - Introduced in 1870 by Colonel George E. Waring, Jr., of Rhode Island. Sold for five dollars per packet (equivalent to eighty dollars today).
