Spring and Planting Thoughts

Over the past few years I’ve planted several different heirloom varieties of tomato. It’s easy to pick up a plant from the local nursery, but more variety is available if started from seed. Heirloom varieties come in all shapes, colors and taste. Give it a try and see what you think!

The “TOP 10” Tomato Descriptions

  • Black Cherry – The only truly black cherry tomato. Large, sprawling, vigorous tomato plants that yield abundant crops in huge clusters of 1″, round, deep purple, mahogany-brown, cherry tomatoes. Indeterminate. 64 days.
  • Brandywine, Sudduth Strain – Tennessee native. Prolific potato leaf plants produce 1-2 lb. large, pink tomatoes. Indeterminate. 85 days.
  • Chocolate Stripes – Large tomato plants that yield a plentiful crop of 1 lb. Indeterminate. 79 days.
  • Blondkopfchen – An heirloom tomato from eastern Germany. Indeterminate. 75 days.
  • Black Krim – Suitable for container/patio garden. Indeterminate. 75 days.
  • Brandywine – A potato-leaf heirloom weigh an average of 1 lb. Indeterminate. 72 days.
  • Amana Orange – A HUGE heirloom beefsteak tomato. Indeterminate. 90 days.
  • Azoychka – This variety produces an abundant crop of smooth, 3-inch, 10-16 oz., slightly flattened, oblate, meaty, yellow/orange tomatoes with a luscious sweet citrusy flavor. Rare tomato seeds. Indeterminate. 70 days.
  • Cherokee Chocolate – A stabilized version of Cherokee Purple. Indeterminate. 80 days.
  • Sunset’s Red Horizon – Proven resistant to frost, blossom end rot and cracking. Delicious fruit with huge tomato flavors. Indeterminate. 80 days.

We have a few more weeks here in the south before it will be time to start seed indoors. Last time I started way too many and ran out of room to plant them all. Starting from seed can also save money. One individual starter plants cost the same as a packet of seeds. That packet of seed has 25 – 30 potential starter plants that you can start yourself. Starting from seed doesn’t take up too much room, and after a few tries you’ll get the hang of it.
