Tomato Plants – Red Heirlooms
Heirloom tomatoes have more complex, old-fashioned flavors than hybrids. Usually less acidic, more of the mystical flavors you remember from your childhood. Indeterminate. 4″ Rootmaker pots. Plants will be ready May 7. Protect from frost.
Note: Seeds can be saved from open-pollinated and heirloom tomatoes. Tomatoes are inbreeding plants with self-fertilization usually occurring before flowers have opened. Therefore, you can grow several varieties next to each other and still have a pure seed stock.
BRANDYWINE QUISENBERRY: 78 days. Large fruit with deep pink skin and pink-red flesh. The potato leaf plant is not a heavy yielder but makes up for it with its wonderful, old-time flavor. Indeterminate.
SIOUX: 70 days. This heirloom variety was originally released in 1944 by the University of Nebraska. Incredible flavor and reliably large harvests even in hot weather. 6 oz. red tomatoes, sweet yet tangy and full of those rich, complex flavors that make a delicious tomato memorable. Indeterminate.
