Seeds for next year's bumper crop

of tomatoes! has an incredible offer--free tomato seeds. Free! Okay, it will cost you 2 first class stamps and a couple of envelopes, but other than that...

Their list of tomato varieties changes frequently but as of this blog post there were more than 140 types available. Wow.

Choosing 10 varieties was not easy, that's for sure. I ended up searching for "heirloom" and also read the descriptions for hardier tomatoes since I'm not that experienced in growing them from seed.

The free offer is for your top 6 picks and then you specify 4 alternates in case any of your top picks aren't available.


For a minimum donation of $5 you can get all 10 choices and that's what I ended up doing.

Here they are--

Tomato seeds from

Clockwise from the top:
1. Great White
2. Black from Tula
3. Cherokee Green
4. Costoluto Genovese
5. Mikado Violettor
6. Super Marmande
7. Henderson's Crimson Cushion
8. German Johnson
9. Powers Heirloom
10. Paul Robeson (center)

Now how am I going to decide which ones to choose for winter sowing?

  • Wow, that's a lot of seeds. I planted 6 little seedlings of Roma tomatoes in my garden in early spring & now I am enjoying the fruits - there are hundreds of them.
