Mr. Stripey - Flossie's Stripey tomatoes

Mr. Stripey - Flossie's Stripey tomatoes

IND (80 days) This is a long story, because it took a very long time for me to be able to offer these amazing seeds and plants to you. I first met Flossie's Stripey back in 2006 when I helped Dr. Randy Gardner of NCSU in his trials to develop "heirloom-type hybrid" tomatoes. Dr. Gardner would listen to me gush about this particular variety with a twinkle in his eye. Years later I wanted to bring this incredible tomato into the catalogue and after growing various stripeys I realized that Flossie's Stripey was not like other Mr. Stripeys, which were too soft and mushy. I was finally able to acquire a few seeds from the archives of the tomato breeding program (Dr. Gardner had since retired). That year (2014) I finally got the crop in the ground but an early frost killed most of the plants before much fruit was ripe. Every year after something would happen to the Flossie Stripey plot and I was only able to get enough seeds to keep the genes alive for next year; not sell the seed or even the plants. Finally I am able to offer you the most incredible, incomparable, laudable Flossie's Stripey Tomato! (Applause!!!). Now to tell you about the fruit: Huge beefsteak fruits ripen from green to green/yellow to green/yellow/red to yellow/red. This process alone is a marvel. Pick one as soon as the yellow begins to arrive and just watch it turn. Wonderful, balanced sweet fruits with excellent firm flesh. Plenty of juice to savor, but still very meaty.

Opalka tomatoes


IND (75 days) One of the best long, red, paste or sauce tomatoes. Sweet, refreshing taste, can be eaten fresh off the vine. Vigorous plant with high yields of 6-8 oz., 4-6", red, elongated fruit. From Poland.

Radiator Charlie (aka Mortgage Lifter

Mortgage Lifter, Radiator Charlie's

IND (79 days) A legendary tomato developed by M C Byles (Radiator Charlie), in the early 1930s in Logan WV. It was in such demand that he sold the plants for $1.00 apiece. His grandson, Edward Martin, is working to provide us the REAL story and the REAL seeds from this classic tomato. The large, slightly flattened, pink-red tomatoes can average 2-1/2 lbs. They are meaty and very flavorful. A must grow.

Pantano tomatoes


IND (85 days) Italians are serious about tomatoes and Pantano is a seriously delicious Italian heirloom. Ruby red beefsteak fruits are bright, firm-fleshed, perfectly balanced and just exquisite. Average size is just under 1 lb so fruits are on the smaller end of beefsteak size. Juicy yet meaty, it's as close to perfection as a tomato will ever come. Well worth the wait!

Peacevine Cherry tomatoes

Peacevine Cherry

IND (75 days) Unbelievable cherry tomato. Produces tresses of small 3/4" delicious red tomatoes. Just keeps on producing. Uniquely high in vitamin C, and gamma amino butyric acid, a body sedative that calms jitters!


Principe Borghese tomatoes

Principe Borghese

DET (75 days) "The traditional Italian tomato for drying!". Traditionally grown in Southern Italy, these 2" long, red, plum shaped tomatoes bear heavily, ripen early, and hold well on the plant. Meaty with little juice and few seeds. Unbelievable! Sweet, tart, tomato essence is beautifully concentrated when dried!

Riesentraube tomatoes


IND (75 days) Most unusual German heirloom red cherry saved by Carolyn Male. Originally from East Germany, but also grown by PA Dutch as early as 1850's. The name means "giant bunch of grapes." Bouquet type blossoms turn into bunches of 20-40 small, oval, red fruit with pointed ends. Excellent, full flavored taste similar to that of beefsteak tomatoes.


Rutgers tomatoes


IND (75 days) An old fashion classic developed in the 1920's. Delicious old timey flavor, highly productive. 6-10 oz juicy red tomatoes. Great for canning.

Sorry. These seeds are sold out.

San Marzano tomatoes

IND (82 days) *Please note some customers are having trouble with the link to buy seeds and plants. I am working to fix it. If you want this variety and have trouble ordering it, just make a note in the purchase order or send an email and I will substitute this variety for another that you order. January 2022* The infamous sauce tomato, deserving every bit of its stellar reputation. Clusters of red, oblong fruits ripen uniformly to allow for small batch processing of your sauces and marinara. Superb flavor, very meaty with few seeds and juice, makes this one of the best canning tomatoes we offer. Try roasting them for an even more rewarding experience! I was reluctant to grow this for many years as it is widely available, but the chef in me finally yielded to experimentation and my gardens will never be without these tasty romas again!

Soldacki tomatoes


IND (80 days) Polish heirloom yielding 1 lb deep pink beefsteak fruits. Low acid, sweet flavor with thin skin makes this cherished by home gardeners as it does not transport well, so is hard to find outside of your garden! Vigorous vines need staking. Dropped from our catalogue for many years and revived due to its exquisite flavor, firm flesh, and hardy growth habit. Proud to reintroduce this rare variety into our curated collection! UPDATE 2024 SEEDS ARE SOLD OUT.

Striped German tomatoes

Striped German

IND (78 days) Incredibly beautiful tomato with flavor to match. Huge, bicolored and ribbed fruit. Yellow with red starting at blossom end. Striking slicer with fruity taste. A must!

Sorry. These seeds are sold out.

Tappy's Heritage tomatoes

Tappy's Heritage

IND (78 days) What a great, old-fashioned tomato. The flavor is so balanced and fresh it won my heart in this year's trials. Such a great, all around tomato. Beautiful, juicy, rich, good producer. In our efforts to offer more red globe tomatoes we sought this one out and it beat Tappy's Finest hands down for production, flavor, and disease resistance. Great canning tomato or fresh off the vine. Try this one, you will be so pleased!

Thai Pink tomatoes

Thai Pink

IND (75 days) One of our favorites! Small, oval, 2 inch, iridescent pink fruit. Flesh is smooth and sweet with real tomato flavor. Incredible yields. Heirloom from Thailand. Hard to find, but definitely worth growing.

Vinson Watt's tomatoes

Vinson Watt's

IND (75 days) The only thing 'wrong' with this tomato is the name starts with a V so you're just now getting to it. This is THE taste test winner of all 62 varieties we grew in 2012. This is the tomato that makes you fall in love with heirloom tomatoes all over again. Perfect balance of flavor and texture with a glowing rose color that seduces you from halfway across the field. Disease tolerant, great production, huge beautiful beefsteak fruits. Effusive praise falls from your lips in between bites. I can't believe it took me so long to discover this heirloom! Try it for yourself and you'll be writing long paragraphs about it too!

Soldacki tomatoes

Wanda's Potato Top

IND (80 days) Potato leaf variety with beautiful pink-red huge beefsteak fruits that make great tomato sandwiches, salsas, and just great fresh eating! This hard to find variety is also reintroduced into our catalogue after combing through the many types we have not had the room to plant, but wanted to keep alive. So glad this one made it into the collection after falling into near obscurity! The 1 lb+ fruits will give other, better known, varieties a run for their money (I'm thinking German Johnson and Mortgage Lifter, though their early ripening gives them an advantage on that front). We don't know who Wanda was, but we sure are glad she kept this delicious tomato alive and we are happy to offer it to you, once again!

Yellow Pear

Yellow Pear

IND (75 days) Heirloom from the 1800’s. Extremely vigorous vining plants produce sweet, scrumptious cherry size yellow fruits shaped like a pear. Great to eat straight off the vine, in salads, and makes a lovely addition to a charcuterie board. See why people have loved them for more than 200 years!
