Heirloom Tomato Plants

Heirloom Tomatoes are just what their name implies. They have been handed down, through generations of farmers and gardeners, from family member to family member. Many of these heirloom varieties are known to have thrived since the 1800's.


Heirloom tomato plants are open-pollinated, growing 'true to type' plants, like their predecessors, from seed. These tomatoes will add untraditional color and pleasing variety to your garden harvest. In order to grow the heartiest and most flavorful tomatoes, we recommend using the Tomato Grower's Test Kit to test your soil, thereby determining the best soil additives for the most successful growth of of your heirloom tomato plants.


Heirloom tomatoes are more susceptible to blossom drop as they are touchier about hot temperatures. Read about how to prevent blossom drop and fruit setting problems in our article on Why Blossoms Drop on Tomatoes.
