Early Tomatoes 2019

*SOLD OUT* Baxter’s Bush Cherry (60 days) Very tasty 1″ bright red cherry. Great for snacking or salads. Vigorous and productive. Determinate growth habit which eliminated the need for staking. Works well in the topsy turvy tomato growing systems. Determinate.

*SOLD OUT* Beaverlodge Slicer (55 days) Very early, with a wonderful sweet/tart taste. Plants are loaded with smooth blemish-free fruit. Perfect for containers or hanging baskets. Determinate.

  

*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* Bush Beefsteak (65 days) Compact and prolific, huge yields of early 8 oz. beefsteak tomatoes in clusters. Good for containers. Determinate. 

*SOLD OUT* Ethel Watkins Best (60-80 days) Round red, perfect fruit, 4-8 oz., juicy with an excellent sweet refreshing flavour. We love these in a salad and on bread. A favourite on our farm. Recommended to us over 15 years ago by Bill Minkey of Seeds of Diversity and we have grown it ever since. Indeterminate.

*SOLD OUT* Golden Cherry (63 days) Incredibly sweet small cherry tomatoes in abundance, perfect for snacking on in the garden, sprinkling on salads or pasta. Indeterminate.

*SOLD OUT* Grightmire’s Pride (65 days) A large, early, meaty, low seed, low acid fruit with good taste. Indeterminate. 

*SOLD OUT* Harbinger (55-60 days) Terrific flavour, reliable, lots per plant of medium-sized, thin-skinned  fruit. Introduced 1910. Does well in cool areas. 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.

  

Matt’s Wild Cherry (60 days) A very sweet tiny tomato. Grows wild in eastern Mexico. This vining plant will sprawl sometimes 6 ft so this variety requires space or trellis support. Some blight resistance. Indeterminate.
