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 Katja Tomato Seed
Organic Katja Tomato Seed (50-60 days)
Sustainably Grown/Approx. 25 seeds per pkg.
Katja is a large pink slicer that not only bears early, but produces copious amount of large fruit that can easily weigh a pound or more.
Plants are semi-determinate which makes them perfect for those that want to get large fruits from a fairly compact plant.
Note: We have been improving this line for earlieness and size. As you will note below the original Katja was 3-5" in size. Our line produces MUCH bigger tomatoes.
Our Friends at Seed Ambassadors say... "Pink 3-5" slicer tomato, very early and reliable. Gorgeous and delicious, Originates in Sludjanka at the shores of lake Bajkal in Siberia, where it is grown outdoors. It is not clear whether it was developed by Katarina Konovna Sviatova (Katja) herself, or if it is an old Russian commercial variety, received from Søren Holt of Frøsamlerne (Danish seed savers) who received it from the Sviatova family in Siberia."
California Grown Heirloom Seed Katja had little problem producing large fruits in cool nights. Which can be a real challenge sometimes. It beat out Brandywine coming in weeks ahead with some of the first big tomatoes of the season. Like most tomatoes it is a heavy feeder, so if you want big fruits don't neglect Katja and she will make you proud!
