Tomato-Keeping

(8 varieties to choose from)

 

Keep the fruits off of the ground when being grown and harvest prior to frost.  Fruits have kept until February from an October picking.  For best keeping quality, pick as late in the season (but prior to frost) then store (with fruits not touching) in a cool, dark basement.

 

Giraffe - Late, Indeterminate, Regular Leaf, never really ripens, stays hard and green.  I am sure the best use for this is breeding material, but it could be a great joke on someone as a gift of a plant and keep them guessing when it will ripen.  Yield is very high.  Pkt. $2.00  Certified Organic Seed

 

Green Paint - Late, Semi-determinate, Regular Leaf, hard green, slowly changes color.  Very firm flesh.  Pkt $2.50  Certified Organic Seed

 

Green Thumb- Late, Determinate, compact plants producing 4 oz., very hard, green tomatoes.  After several months of storage, the fruits ripen to a pale yellow with reddish gel around the seeds Pkt. $2.50 Certified Organic Seed

Lenan Yellow - Mid-season, Indeterminate, Regular Leaf, hard fleshed lemon yellow fruit.  8 to 12 oz.  Pkt. $2.00  Certified Organic Seed

 

Old Fashioned Garden Peach- Early, Semi-determinate, yellowish-red, 4 oz. hard fruits that will keep for some period of time.  We have changed the name slightly from just “Garden Peach” as recently another tomato that is not this one is being distributed by that name.  This one does not have fuzzy skin and is a true, keeping type tomato.   Pkt. $2.50  Certified Organic Seed

 

Ruby Treasure - Mid-season, a Tim Peters development.  Nice, bright scarlet red fruits.  Slightly firm keeper that doesn’t keep quite as long as the others.  Pkt. $2.50  Certified Organic Seed

Winterkeeper- Late, Indeterminate, Regular Leaf, 10 oz. fruits, solid green until storage then turn a pale yellow outside and red inside.   Pkt. $2.50  Certified Organic Seed

Yellow Out Red In- Late, Semi-determinate, solid 6 oz. globe,  tart.  The best of the keeping tomatoes.  Pkt. $2.50  Certified Organic Seed SOLD OUT AS OF 3/5/2019
