TOP 10 OF 2022:


Sgt. Pepper's Tomato

No surprise here- as she's been a winner for years! An exquisite oxheart variety with beauty, flavor and production to match. Our plants were loaded with the most attractive heart-shaped fruits with breathtaking colors of black, deep purple and raspberry pink. The flesh of Sgt. Peppers is almost all meat; being extremely tender with rich and sweet flavor. These tomatoes began to ripen around 80 days and produced an extremely generous harvest for the farm. Long shelf life, flawless appearance and disease resistant vines make this an all around winner and fabulous contender for market. The largest fruit of the season weighed a whopping 1.5 lbs while most were around 8-12 oz. This one is perfect for sauces with its thick flesh yet equally as fantastic fresh off the vine. The only drawback we find is its thin vines and slightly droopy leaf habit... combine this characteristic with high yields of enormous fruits and you'll find that strong supports implemented early in the season are a necessity to have a successful growing experience with the lovely Sgt. Pepper's Tomato.

Aurora Blue Tomato

It's no secret that I am a total sucker for this magnificent color combination... but Aurora Blue just does it oh so well. The fruits of this variety are absolutely flawless and have the most luscious raspberry colored skin with shimmering violet to deep purple colored shoulders.

Shades of indigo, pink, gold and green drip down the fruits in the most stunning display, and are matched by a luscious, rich and juicy flesh. These plants have a droopy growth habit, similar to Sgt. Peppers, and can be very challenging to support. However, once well established, they are extremely heavy producers and will set fruit quite early on in the season. Absolutely delectable flavor and unmatched beauty!

Ananas Noire Heirloom Tomato

Multicolored, large to extra large beefsteaks showcase mottled colors of olive green, soft yellows, pinks, mauves and more- but the biggest surprise is their stunning red and green streaked flesh. While some flaunt extremely bold and wild colors, others are softer and a touch more muted. Generally, the riper the fruit, the more prominent the colors will be inside!
These are absolutely delectable tomatoes. Pascal Moreau found this gem after an unknown black tomato variety and a pineapple tomato naturally crossed in his garden. This lovely combination birthed a fruit with all of the best qualities both parents had to offer; being very bold, sweet, rich, smoky and tropical with a perfect balance of acidity. We have been growing these since 2012 with great success in a range of different climates. A forever favorite on our farm!

Fruit type: Beefsteak/Slicer
Fruit Size: 6-12oz
