2017 Plant Sale!

Rosso Sicilian

We’re doing plant starts again this year – peppers,  tomatoes and herbs. They are $3.50 each or 3 for $10.

We will be selling them again at the farm and at Moschetti’s (please see our Facebook page for more information).

For the past three years we’ve attended a tomato tasting and then held our own tomato tasting event. Our primary focus was finding tomatoes that were not only productive but also had exceptional flavor. Some of the varieties we grew last year didn’t make the cut but we found many more to take their place.

We are a CDFA licensed nursery.


Cherry Tomatoes

Black CherryRich, sweet and complex, this true black tomato is productive and irresistible.
green-grapeGreen GrapeSmall, compact plants with easy to harvest fruit that full of sweet, tart, juicy flavor. Prolific producer.
isis candyIsis CandyOrange cherry tomato with red starburst. Very productive of small sweet, fruity tomatoes that you can just pop in your mouth. In our opinion it has better flavor that Sungolds.
Snow WhiteSweet ivory colored cherries that are hard to resist just popping into your mouth while picking them. They are the sweetest cherry tomatoes we've tried while still maintaining a complex flavor profile. Truly a favorite here.
Wapsipinicon PeachA small yellow tomato with an unusually fuzzy skin. Productive plant of very, very sweet, mild fruit with a hint of peach. Husband says “sweetest tomato I’ve ever eaten.”

Paste Tomatoes

amish-pasteAmish PasteOf the many paste tomatoes we tasted, this one was far and away, the best tasting. I look forward to trying the concentrated flavor of these when canning. Nice sized red Roma type tomatoes that are good for both canning and fresh eating (something you can’t say about most paste tomatoes). Fresh they are very sweet with acid right up front.
Rosso SicilianRosso SicilianThis is an Italian heirloom with small to medium sized ribbed fruits that are firm and meaty and perfect for making sauce and paste. Bruises easily. Rated as one of the better tasting tomatoes we grew last year.

Slicing Tomatoes

Black KrimOne of our most popular varieties. A purple-black beefsteak with a subacid, mild flavor. Fruits get darker when exposed to sunlight. Productive.
green zebraGreen ZebraSmall 2-1/2″-3″ salad tomato that is green with darker green stripes. Fruit is sweet and “zingy.” Very productive plant if you can find all the fruit! The light green will have a yellow hue when ripe. Makes a really good green pesto bruschetta. Good for pots.
Minolta DSC JubileeProductive tomato with golden large, round fruit. Delicious flavored tomato that gets 8-12 oz.
mr-stripeyMr. Stripey (Tigerella)For whatever reason, many striped tomatoes tend not to have as much flavor as their solid colored compadres. I surmise that it is due to the coloring of the striped tomato being the primary focus, rather than the flavor. Mr. Stripey, fortunately, is not one of them. These are smaller salad size tomatoes with a sweet and tart flavor.
SiouxWe grew this small rather unassuming red tomato two years ago only because we got a packet of free seeds. At our tomato tasting we were surprised that it outperformed all of the other tomatoes and was hands down the favorite out of 16 varieties. Sweet, tangy, rich and complex, you won’t regret making space for this variety.
stupice-homeStupiceOne of our more popular varieties. This very early tomato blew me away this year with it’s productiveness. Small tomatoes, but not quite cherry size are born as early as late June and continues through until the frost. Sweet and flavorful. Good for pots.
thessalonikiThessalonikiA red Greek tomato that resists cracking and sun scald. Fantastic old fashioned but sweet, subacid tomato flavor. I have farmer friends that say they only will start selling the fruit from this variety after they physically can no longer eat them.
valenciaValenciaMeaty, fruit is both tangy and sweet. Ripens earlier than most orange tomatoes.

Beefsteak Tomatoes

Ananas NoirIf you can’t make up your mind about what color tomatoes to grow, this might be the one for you. Green, red, orange, yellow and purple all rolled into one tasty beefsteak-type tomato. A very tasty, sweet tomato with low acid.
Aunt Ruby's German GreenA popular green heirloom tomato that is acidic with a meaty, old fashioned flavor. It is better tasting than most red tomatoes. How could we not give this one a try?
Brandywine (Sudduth’s Strain) The beefsteak that all beefsteak tomatoes should be judged by. Big, red fruits commonly over a pound but can reach two pounds are rich and intense.
Dr. Wyche's YellowBig, beautiful yellow beefsteak with green shoulders. Productive plant of 1lb fruits or larger. Subacid with a lovely citrusy, sweet flavor.
Hillbilly Big yellow orange beefsteak with red streaks. Husband describes it as “rich, meaty, tomato-y goodness.” The favorite tomato around here. Few seeds and very fleshy.

One thought on “2017 Plant Sale!

  1. Bought my first tomatoes from you Saturday. Can’t wait to watch them grow. I want to thank you for your helpful hints in planting them. I’ll be back next Saturday to purchase the Isis Candy and what ever catches my fancy. You also recommended to go to Mid City Nursery to get the dirt but I don’t remember the type or brand. Thank you again, Debra Flork
