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.

Ponderosa Pink Tomato Seed
Ponderosa Pink Tomato Seed (86 days)
Approx. 25 heirloom tomato seeds
Indeterminate tomato vines
More properly known as Henderson's Ponderosa. This tomato was first released by the Peter Henderson Seed Company in 1891.
This is what the 1896 seed catalog says about Henderson's Ponderosa Tomato..."The vines are strong and vigorous and esily carry their enoumous weight of fruit. Its massive ponderous fruits are almost perfect in form, and when we come to size, weight and solidity, no other tomato begins to approach it. The color, a rich crimson permeates the from circumference to center, so that when sliced for the table its rare beauty never fials to elict general admiration. It is almost seedless. It is very early for a large tomato. The flavor is delicious, whether used raw or cooked."
