Three different gourmet tomato plants. A feast for tomato lovers. This premier collection offers three of our best heirloom varieties for taste, flavor and size. You get one plant each of: Cherokee Purple tomatoes with gorgeous dark color and tangy flavor. Estler’s Mortgage Lifter which is very productive and Brandywine Sudduth strain-considered the best-tasting heirloom tomato of all time. Enjoy.
Brandywine – Brandywine, which dates back to 1885, is probably the first heirloom tomato to achieve “rock star” status. One taste of its superb flavor and you’ll understand why. It is also the tomato that has broken the most gardener’s hearts because of a tendency to be stingy with fruit and susceptibility to diseases. Grafted onto the Mighty ‘Mato rootstock, these problems simply disappear. You’ll harvest many large, beefsteak-shaped fruits on upright, potato-leaved plants.
Cherokee Purple – The dusky rose, 8-12 ounce round fruits have a complex, old-time flavor that rivals Brandywine – a treat for slicing onto sandwiches! Pre-1890 heirloom has dark shoulders that may retain a hint of green even when ripe – harvest when slightly soft to the touch. Fruits display deep red flesh when sliced. Prolific indeterminate plants
Mortgage Lifter -This large, meaty, mild-flavored tomato has few seeds and is the perfect tomato-sandwich tomato. The plants bear pinkish-red, one to three pound tomatoes all summer long. One of the best strains of the Mortgage Lifter Tomato is the Estler’s selection; it is more productive and tasty than the other strains. Indeterminate. 85 days
