*SOLD OUT* Black Cherry (64 days) This dark  1” tomato is a pure burst of delicious smoky flavour, especially when eaten straight off the vine.  Large, vigorous plants. Indeterminate.

*SOLD OUT* Brookpact (60 days) This early red is good for those with limited space. Plants tend to be small and neat but produce lots of large 6-10 oz fruit. Determinate.

*SOLD OUT* Chadwick’s Cherry (72 days) An heirloom variety that has been grown for over 100 years. Plants produce high yields of small 1” red cherry tomatoes which grow in clusters. Sweet-tart flavour. Perfect for snacking or salads. Indeterminate.

*SOLD OUT* Jaune Flamme (70 days) Prolific French heirloom that bears in clusters of 9 or 10, beautiful, 1-1/2 inch, round golf-ball sized tomatoes that are persimmon-orange coloured inside and out. A delicious, tangy, full-bodied flavour that is great for snacking and salads. I consider this the best tasting tomato we grow. Indeterminate.

*SOLD OUT* Manitoba (60 days) Developed in Manitoba, this 6 oz bright red tomato is very smooth with a slightly flattened appearance. Bush-like plants are very productive yet stay relatively small.  Resistant to cracking. Good for the topsy turvy tomato growing systems. Determinate – so does not need staking.

*SOLD OUT* Rosella Purple (75 days) A dwarf tomato, perfect for a large container or small garden space. The salad sized tomatoes ripen to a deep pink-purple colour. Full, intense, balanced and delicious flavour. Indeterminate.

*SOLD OUT* Scotia (60 days) This Canadian-bred small bush variety produces heavy yields of medium-sized fruit in short season areas. A beautiful early tomato with a lovely sweet flavour. Popular for using the unripe tomatoes to make the famous Maritime Green Tomato Relish. Determinate.

*NEW* White Currant (70 days) The fruit is tiny, barely an inch across, and creamy white, with skins having a pale yellow tint. One of the sweetest tomatoes, with superb flavour. The fruit grow in clusters, and the yield is huge! Large vining plants that trails well in a hanging basked.  A wild type. Indeterminate.
