Comment: Great selection. I'm very picky about the tomato I grow and I can't find these varieties at the local nursery's .I purchased tomato plants last year and loved them. The plants are packed well and the plants are healthy upon arrival. I got a great harvest last year and by the looks of the plants, I should get another one this year. Order early, they sell out fast.

Comment: Arrived safe, secure and healthy. Transplanted into a raised bed of tomatoes, carrots, pickling cuts and a variety of basil. Took its time with initial growth after transplant, but thriving now. Beginning to flower, no signs of tomatoes yet. As a confessed wine and tomato-aholic, who could go wrong with these tomatoes?

Comment: Got this to try in place of a Cherokee Purple variety. Will have to wait until harvest to compare the tastes. Plant came nicely packaged and was very healthy. Transplanted well and seems to be thriving. Looking forward to our first harvest!
