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.

Belarus Orange Tomato Seed
Belarus Orange Tomato Seed (76 days)
Sustainably Grown Tomato Seed
I believe the story or history of a seed like Belarus Orange Tomato is important to share. I got this seed a few years ago from Lisa Von Saunder. She collects endangered seeds from Amish Pennsylvania German families in the area and tries to preserve them. Lisa also gets seeds from her friends in Russia. Here is how she says Belarus Orange came about.
"I received a wonderful surprise package of heirloom seeds from Andrey B. from Belarus, a former part of the Soviet Union until 15 years ago. It is situated between Russia and Poland and is in growing Zone 4A." Andrey told Lisa "I want you to present these great varieties to American and other foreign gardeners "
Sweet incredibly rich flavor. Firm, thick, meaty, few seeds all packed in an amazing orange color. Very, very productive! Belarus has to be one of my favorite orange tomatoes! Perfect for slicing.
California Grown Heirloom Seed Belarus Orange did extremely well here in the coastal range. It was the earliest orange to start producing and didn't stop until the first freeze. This was a favorite of the chef at the winery for the bright color and rich flavor.
