1. Black Krim Tomato Seeds
Indeterminate. 84 days. A European heirloom slicing tomato, the Black Krim has quickly set the standard for large and unique heirloom tomatoes. Similar to other exotic black European tomatoes such as Black from Tula and Black Russian, the heirloom Black Krim is native to Ukraine and the Crimean Sea, in which the cultivar was named after the Ukranian word for Crimea, Krim. Produces large 1+ pound tomatoes and requires heavy trellising and support.
2. Brandywine Pink Tomato Seeds
Indeterminate. 91 days. The original among the famous line of American heirloom Brandywine strains, Brandywine is by default considered a “pink” tomato, cultivated from a long tradition of pink tomatoes cherished throughout the Ozarks. Named after the Brandywine River in Pennsylvania, the Brandywine was bred to specificity for the region before becoming a standard among American heirlooms. Brandywine tomatoes are known to routinely weigh in at about 1 pound per fruit.
3. Green Zebra Tomato Seeds
Indeterminate. 84 days. Bred and cultivated by pioneering American horticulturist Tom Wagner, the Green Zebra was the first of its kind to make the traditionally inedible green tomato into a sweet and sugary favorite. Smaller than beefsteak varieties, the Green Zebra delivers an entire summer's worth of 3-5 ounce tomatoes and is prized as both an exotic paste and slicing tomato. Try pairing Green Zebra tomatoes with tomatillos or sweet peppers.
4. Tangerine Tomato Seeds
Determinate. 84 days. Also popularly known as Sweet Tangerine, the Tangerine tomato is grown for its uniquely bright yellow and orange skin and flesh which helps break up the monotony of more traditionally colored tomatoes in the kitchen. The Tangerine tomato is nearly a century-old American heirloom boasting medium sized 6-8 ounce fruits versatile enough to be used as either a slicing or paste tomato. Comparable to the Green Zebra or Hillbilly tomato.
5. Vintage Wine Tomato Seeds
Indeterminate. 91 days. Perhaps the most elegant and visually complex tomato of the Crazy Color collection, Vintage Wine is a rare Brandywine-type tomato from the long tradition of pink mountain tomatoes. Vintage Wine delivers artisan orange and yellow bi-colored fruits that will have any number of color combinations throughout the ripening process. Produces large 14-20 ounce colorful beefsteak-style tomatoes, an ideal substitute for the traditional beefsteak.
6. Yellow Pear Tomato Seeds
Indeterminate. 77 days. Golden yellow teardrop-shaped 1-2” long heirloom cherry tomatoes, Yellow Pear tomato is widely known to be one of the sweetest tomatoes with the least amount of acidity. Still considered a smaller cherry tomato, the Yellow Pear has a noticeably rounder and pear-shape body. Despite the tomato being native to the Americas of the New World, the Yellow Pear was first developed and marketed in Europe towards the end of the 18th century.
