cart during season.
Red Heart (Heirloom)
Maturity: 75 Days
Large, red, heart-shaped fruit. Beautiful, large, deep red, heart-shaped
tomato. Smooth and appealing fruits avg. 8-12 oz. The interior is meaty
with few seeds and has full flavor for salads or cooking. The only red
tomato of this type known. Ordered from Johnny's Selected Seeds who thank
Craig LeHoullier for this tomato, which he got from J. Reif, PA, who received
it from an elderly Italian man. Indeterminate.
Maturity: 70 Days
Petite, distinctive salad tomato. Tall, vigorous vine bears quantities
of small, 3/4 to 1 oz., lemon yellow, pear-shaped fruits. These unusual,
appealing tomatoes are a focal point when served whole in salads or in
lightly cooked summer vegetable dishes. Mild flavor. Indeterminate.
Maturity: 65 Days Northern favorite. Established in short-season areas
as a favorite early plum. Medium large, avg. 3-4 oz., oval-round red fruits
are jointless (pick without stems) and easy to harvest. Good taste for
canning or fresh. Larger and earlier than other sauce tomatoes. Compact
plant with a concentrated early set. Developed by Dr. Jack Metcalf, Smithfield
Experiment Farm, Ontario, Canada. Determinate. Organically grown.
Maturity: 62 Days Taste tops the charts. Grow this for quantities of medium-sized,
avg. 4-7 oz., red fruits with rich, full flavor for sandwiches and salads
early in the summer. New Girl ripens earlier than First Lady II, and the
fruits better resist over-ripening so they keep longer when ripe. With
the still widely-grown variety Early Girl over 20 years old, it's time
for a successor, and New Girl is better tasting and more disease resistant.
53 days pale yellow, 78 days red ripe. Tasty East European frying pepper.
Jan Antohi was a touring acrobat when he defected to the United States.
In late 1991, he visited his family in Romania for the first time in over
8 years, and came back with seeds of this delicious heirloom pepper. Smooth,
4" long, by 2" wide, tapered, pointed fruits ripen from pale
yellow to red. Upright plants have good branch strength and yield early
grow this pepper variety for three year and love the taste of this pepper
when cooked - Romanians fry it in a hot skillet to experience the sweet
full flavor, especially when red ripe.
53 days. Jade's beautiful, 6-7" long, slender, deep green pods are
exceptionally tender and delicious. Large upright plants keep beans clenad
and straight. Heat tolerant and high yielding even when stressed by heat
