THIS PALE YELLOW WITH LIGHT RED STRIPPING HEIRLOOM WAS INTRODUCED IN 2004. GARY IBSEN AND NOW WIFE DAGMA LACEY INTRODUCED IT. GEE, I WONDER WHERE THE NAME CAME FROM HAHA. THIS FRUIT IS SAID TO HAVE A TROPICAL FRUIT TASTE WITH A HINT OF LIME. IT IS TARTER THAN MOST SO AN ADDITION TO SALADS IS A GREAT WAY TO ENJOY THIS TOMATO.

 

THE INDIAN STRIPE IS PROBABLY A STRAIN OF CHEROKEE PURPLE. IT WAS NAMED BY CAROLYN MALE OF NY WHO GOT THE SEEDS FROM SOMEONE IN TEXAS. THE MAJOR DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AND THE CHEROKEE PURPLE IS THE SOMETIMES STRIPING WHICH IS MORE NOTICEABLE WHEN IT IS GROWING. IN ADDITION, THIS IS A LITTLE LIGHTER AND NOT AS BIG AS THE CHEROKEE PURPLE. ANOTHER THING IS THAT IT IS A GOOD COOL WEATHER TOMATO, WHICH MEANS YOU WILL NOT SEE THIS TOMATO UNTIL LATE AUGUST. LIKE THE CHEROKEE, IT IS SO GOOD FOR SAUCES, SANDWICHES, SALADS, AND SNACKING.

 

THE ONLY THING THE TITLE MIGHT HAVE IS THAT THE TOMATO IS CLOSE TO WHITE. IT IS A PALE PEACH COLOR WITH PINK BLUSHES. THE YIELD OF THIS PLANT IS SUPPOSED TO BE LOW SO WHEN THEY ARE OUT GET THEM. IT HAS A TROPICAL FLAVOR WITH A HINT OF MELON IN IT. IT IS ONE OF THOSE SWEET THAN TART TOMATOES.

HERE AGAIN, NAMES CAN BE CONFUSING IN THAT THIS TOMATO IS FROM NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA AREA. THIS MEATY PINK TOMATO HAS A FULL FLAVOR. IT IS ONE OF THE PARENTS OF THE MORTGAGE LIFTER TOMATO. SINCE THIS IS A LARGE TOMATO IT IS IDEAL FOR SLICING BUT ALSO IT IS EASY TO PEEL SO CANNING ALSO BECOMES AN OPTION. THE USES ARE MANY RANGING FROM SANDWICHES, SALADS, SOUPS, SAUCES AND OF COURSE SNACKING.

ANOTHER FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE TOMATOES, THIS TOMATO DOES NOT SPOIL ONES IDEA OF COLD IN RUSSIA. IT HAS ITS ORIGINS IN SIBERIA AND WAS INTRODUCED TO THE POPULATION AT IRKUTSK, RUSSIA. THIS OVAL DARK MAHONEY TOMATO IS JUST A LITTLE TOO BIG TO CALL CHERRY STYLE. IT IS SAID TO HAVE HEALTH BENEFITS BEYOND THE NORMAL TOMATO LYCOPENE. IT HAS A FULL, INTENSE, RICH TOMATO FLAVOR. IT IS ALSO USED TO MAKE BLACK PRINCE TOMATO OIL IN RUSSIA. IT IS GREAT FOR SALADS, SAUCES, OR JUST EATING.

 

THIS DARK PINK TOMATO HAS ITS ORIGIN FROM BULGARIA. THIS HEIRLOOM HAS FEW SEED AND IS FLATTENING IN SHAPE INSTEAD OF THE GLOBE SHAPE MOST TOMATOES HAVE AS ITS PRESENTS. THIS IS A SWEET FLAVORED TOMATO SO OF COURSE YOU KNOW THAT IT IS HIGH IN ACID AS IS MOST DARK COLORED TOMATOES. THIS IS GREAT FOR SALADS, SANDWICHES, AND OF COURSE SNACKING

 

SOME SAY IT TASTES THE SAME AS THE CHEROKEE PURPLE. THIS DARK CRIMSON RED WITH BROWN SHOULDER HEIRLOOM WAS DISCOVERED IN THE GARDEN OF HEIRLOOM CONNOISSEUR CRAIG LEHOULLIER. IT WAS INTRODUCED TO THE PUBLIC IN 2004 BY VICTORY SEED COMPANY. CHEFS LIKE IT BECAUSE OF THE CHOCOLATE MAHOGANY COLOR AND THE TASTE. THIS TOMATO IS GOOD FOR SALADS, SANDWICHES, SAUCES, AND OF COURSE SNACKS

 

THE BLACK KRIMM MIGHT ALSO BE KNOWN AS THE BLACK CRIMSON OR BLACK CRIM. REGARDLESS, IT IS FROM THE ISLE OF KRIMM ON THE BLACK SEA IN THE AREA OF THE FORMER SOVIET UNION. IT IS DARK RED, SLIGHTLY MAROON. THE TOMATO IS VERY PRONE TO CRACKING BUT MORE THAN MAKES UP FOR THAT WITH ITS TASTE. IT HAS A FANSTASTIC, INTENSE, SLIGHTY SALTY TASTE(GREAT FOR THOSE ON A SALT FREE DIET). IT IS THE PERFECT ADDITION TO THAT SUNDAY MORNING OMLET TO PAMPER YOUR TASTE BUDS. IT IS ALSO GREAT ON SANDWICHES, SALADS, COOKING OR JUST EATING

 

THE WHITE WONDER IS A LOW ACIT TOMATO THAT IS MILD AND SWEET. IT HAS A CREAM COLOR INSIDE AND OUT MAKING IT A UNIQUE TOMATO. THIS HEIRLOOM IS FEATURED REGULARYLY IN ALICE WATERS’ FAMOUS CHEZ PANISSE. IT IS A MUST IN ANY MULTICOLOR TOMATO MARINDADE (GARLIC, VINEGAR, OIL, PEPPER, AND HERB SEASONING). IT IS ALSO GOOD FOR ANYONE WORRIED ABOUT ACID AS IT IS VERY LOW IN ACID. GREAT FOR SANDWICHES, SALADS, SAUCES, AND SNACKS.

THIS IS NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE WORLD WAR II TANK BATTLE IN RUSSIA, BUT THIS IS A RARE AND UNEXPECTED FIND FOR HEIRLOOM TOMATOES. THIS IS A 100 YEAR OLD TOMATO FROM THE URALS NEAR THE CITY OF TOBOLSK, RUSSIA.  THIS IS A LIGHT YELLOW  TO ORANGE TOMATO THAT IS SWEET TO THE TASTE. IT HAS THE PERFECT BALANCE OF ACID FOR SUCH A SWEET TASTING TOMATO. THIS HEIRLOOM IS A GREAT ADDITON FOR SALADS SANWICHES, SAUCES, OR SNACKING.
