Heirloom tomatoes are varieties whose incomparable eating quality has led seed savers to collect and pass them down through generations of growers. While the flavor of heirlooms surpasses many modern varieties, they do require more attention from the grower, and are typically lower yielding than modern hybrids. The thin skin that contributes to their fine eating quality can also predispose them to being damaged more easily than thicker-skinned varieties. We look for the best of both worlds and offer only the finest heirlooms, from lines that provide the highest marketable yield without compromising flavor. All our heirloom tomatoes are indeterminate varieties, many are available as certified-organic seed, and some as plants, professionally grafted onto vigorous rootstock varieties.
