                     Tomatoes
Everybody who gardens usually plants at least one variety of Tomato.  While actually classified as a fruit, almost everybody considers them a vegetable.  With literally dozens of varieties available and personal preferences almost as many, our dilemma has been how to decide what varieties to carry with the limited space we can offer.  With nine choices to pick from (down from 15 in 2007) your dilemma will be the same.  We have a possible solution for you.  Try our new Variety 6 Pack.  Each of these packs will have six different varieties, so you can have a multiple choice of tomatoes to grow without having to buy six of every kind.

Selection Tip: when choosing varieties, keep in mind that “determinates” ripen over 3-4 weeks on bushy vines that usually need no staking. “Indeterminate” vines continue to grow and produce fruit all season until frost. The large vines need support.
