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.
|Ananas Noir||If 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 Green||A 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 Yellow||Big, 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.|
Disease Resistant Tomatoes
|Carmello VFNT Hybrid||This red French variety is thought to be one of the most productive varieties available, this tomatoes pumps out juicy fruits that have exceptional balanced flavor. Subacid and mildly sweet they are what a good tomato should taste like. Shows disease resistance to Verticillium wilt, Fusarium Wilt 1, Gray Leaf Spot, Nematodes, and Tobacco Mosaic Virus. Good for pots.|
|Red Rose||A cross between Brandywine and Rutgers, this is a disease and crack resistant tomato with dark pink fruit. Has good flavor that is is acidic and sweet.|
|Rutgers||Last year a customer couldn't praise this variety enough and he convinced us to carry it this year. It's an old fashioned classic tomato with the flavor to match that is production and disease resistant.|
