Orange Jubilee

prod001979

Indeterminate. A Burpee original—and an All-America Selections winner in 1943. Burpee’s Jubilee is the outstanding result of a stabilized, six-generation selection from a cross between Tangerine and Rutgers tomatoes. Up to 3″ across, the bright golden-orange globular fruits are smooth and solid, with a mild delectable flavor. High-yielding plants. 80 days to maturity. Plants 5 ft tall.


Heirloom Hot Tub Beefsteak Tomato

Determinant. Volunteer tomato that grew on our bulkhead exposed to salt spray, so we know it is rather hardy. This is our favorite for under our windows on the west side. They only get 3 feet tall and it is very easy to pick the medium size beefsteak that come in the months of July and August. 65 – 75 days to maturity.

Indeterminate. The culture of the ribbed and scalloped Purple Calabash Tomato dates to pre-Columbian Mexico. It is uniquely acidic, but with a rich and concentrated flavor. Delicious fresh, this tomato really shines in sauces and pastes. 85 days to maturity. Plants 6 to 8 ft tall.

(Out of Stock) Pink Egg Tomato

511o0k-tjol-_sy300_

Honestly a bit of a mystery to us. Received these seeds from a Moldovan family. They may turn out like the image above but no guarantees. Until we can verify what these tomatoes look like they will be a gamblers variety. Indeterminate? 65 – 70 days?


(Out of Stock) Yellow Pear Organic Heirloom
