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 Red Heart Tomato
Organic Red Heart Tomato (79 days)
25 heirloom tomato seeds per pkg
Introduce by Gill's Seed Company Portland, OR in 1939
1939 catalog says...
"We now introduce a tomato with flesh the deepest red in color yet found. One that is heavy bearing, long keeping, globe shaped. It is sure to be a valuable shipping and canning variety. Fruits picked entirely green will develop into ripe fruits of excellent qualitya and bright blood red when cut."
In our field test we found a great deal of variation in this seed line, but wanted to release it since eveyone was impressed with the flavor at the farm. It is meaty and sweet. Borne in clusters of 4. Good production. We will continue to improve this line.
