I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

Japanese Black Trifele Tomato Seeds
Lycopersicon esculentum Japanese Black Trifele Tomato Seeds (70 days)
Sustainably Grown Approx. 25 heirloom seeds
Indeterminate. Despite the name "Japanese" Black Trifele this tomato comes from deep within Russia!
Japanese Black Trifele is a potato leaf variety that yields tons of mahogany-colored fruit in the shape of a pear and literally about the same size. The flavor and taste is unparreled even beating out Black from Tula in taste tests. Japanese Black Trifele's luscious fruit seems to never stop producing gobs of tomatoes all summer season. You will not need to plant more that a few plants that is for sure.
Excellent for fresh eating, salads and makes a rich complex tomato sauce.
California Grown Heirloom Seed This tomato not only did great here, I honestly got tired of picking it! There were so many tomatoes I couldn't keep up. Unlike a lot of black tomatoes that split or show concentric cracking, Japanese Black Pear is blemish free. This is a great black tomato for BLTs as well.
