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.

Organic Burpee Table Talk Tomato Seeds
Organic Burpee Table Talk Tomato Seeds (75 days)
Sustainably Grown Approx. 25 heirloom seeds
Semi-determinate vines with regular leaves.
Burpee's Tabletalk is said to have been a single plant selection from Marglobe and released by Burpee in 1941. Listed prominently on many Burpee catalog covers and was reported to be their top variety in 1943. Burpee's Tabletalk has 4-6 oz, deep globe shaped fruit with a solid meaty interior. Very similar to Marglobe with fantastic crack resistance. Was extremely popular for many years especially on the East Coast.
1944 Burpee Seed Catalog said about Burpee Table Talk Tomato.... "A new all-purpose tomato. The fruit, unusual in that it combines a large size with deep globular form, averages 7-8.5 oz. The shoulder is smooth, there is little or no depression at the stem end and the scar is quite small-in other words, it is refined in spite of its size. The color is bright scarlet, uniform and attractive. Slice Burpee's Table Talk and you will marvel at the structure and the firmness of its interior. The plant is short stemmed and bushy, but with no self-topping tendency. The leaves are small and set closely together, dark green, thick and fir in texture, forming a dense mass of foliage which protects the fruit."
California Grown Heirloom Seed Burpee Table Talk was very prolific in our gardens producing many, firm tomatoes just bigger than a golf ball. Some get larger and I want to start selecting those over the next few years to improve the line.
