Grower Lori has released some additional varieties of tomatoes (while supplies last):

  • Yellow Pear
  • Mortgage Lifter
  • Tomatillo-green
  • Green Zebra - heirloom
  • Cherokee Purple - heirloom

The difference between determinate and indeterminate tomato varieties: Determinate tomatoes (also known as bush) are bred to grow to a compact height. Once they set fruit, they stop growing, and their crop ripens at the same time. These varieties are relatively good in pots.

Indeterminate tomatoes (vining) grow and set fruit continually until killed by frost or you get tired of having them around. They need the most staking and caging and are not as suitable for container gardening.
