60-70 days, Open-pollinated, Determinate
Beautiful, early, glossy-pink slicer tomato from Quebec, with 6-8 oz. globe shaped, blemish-free fruit, high yields, excellent sweet-tart flavor, good texture, tender skins, ripening over several weeks. Sturdy, 4’-tall, determinate bushes are easily caged or trellised. Great for short-season areas such as higher elevations in the foothills.
Orange King – NEW!
65 days. Open-pollinated, Semi-Determinate
One of the earliest full-size tomatoes to ripen and one of the best producers of early tennis-ball-size, very meaty, bright orange globes that can weigh up to ¾ lb. Blemish-free and durable fruit grow on stocky 3’ bushes that are easy to cage. An excellent short-season slicing variety, it has great low-acid, sweet, fruity flavor. There are a few varieties with the same name, but this Orange King was bred by Tim Peters of Peters Seed and Research in Oregon.
New Big Dwarf – NEW!
70-80 days, Open-pollinated Heirloom, Determinate
This much-loved heirloom dating back to the early 1900’s is a cross of Ponderosa with Dwarf Champion. The compact, 2 to 4’ tall plants with rugose leaves are perfect for containers, small gardens and patios, producing remarkably high yields of 8 to 12 oz. (some 16 oz.!) slightly flattened, deep pink beefsteak tomatoes. Very sweet, juicy, and flavorful, perfect for salads, slicing, and sandwiches. Reviewers say, “The plant only got about 4 feet tall but I got around 70 tomatoes from the thing!” and “It grows upright much like a large broccoli plant and the fruit are hidden under the foliage.” Reportedly resistant to TSWV.
Early Cascade – NEW!
55-62 days, Open-Pollinated, Indeterminate
The Early Cascade Tomato is an early maturing, full-flavored bright red ‘saladette’ type of tomato that produces super-abundant yields from early summer to the first frost. The little 4 oz. vibrant tomatoes, borne in clusters of 5-8 fruits are perfect for salads and sandwiches, versatile enough for home processing and canning. Bred for cooler climates and disease resistance, recommended for higher elevations here. NOTE: Early Cascade OP has been “de-hybridized” from the popular hybrid variety of Early Cascade that is no longer being produced. The OP variety has better flavor and thinner skins than the hybrid did.
Mountain Gold – NEW!
70 days, Open-Pollinated, Determinate
An early-maturing, golden-yellow slicing and salad tomato bred for good yields, disease resistance, crack-resistance. The large, firm 8-12 oz. fruits have a mild, sweet flavor with a hint of acid. The round, smooth-skinned fruits hold up in quality both on the 4’ bush and after picking.
Cascade Village Blue – NEW!
70-75 days, Open-Pollinated, Indeterminate
Bred by Tom Wagner of Everett, Washington, from a cross between an indigo type and his famed Green Zebra tomato. This lovely high anthocyanin ‘saladette’ tomato holds well on and off the vine, is beautiful, and tastes great, too. Dark purple-skinned, 3 oz. globes in clusters of 6 to 8 ripen to red on the bottom, often with a red star shape that forms under the calyx. The tender flesh is red, with minimal seeds and bright, low acid flavor that finishes tangy-sweet (inherited from Green Zebra parentage). And the foliage has a nice dark purple tinge.
Native Sun – NEW!
50-65 days, Open-Pollinated, Determinate
Considered the best super early yellow determinate tomato. Flavorful 3-4 oz. lemon yellow fruit. As early as subarctic tomatoes with much more flavor – very sweet with a nice tomato finish – and larger size. Very productive, with multiple concentrated yields on healthy bushes. Crack resistant and blemish free. Grows well in containers and even better in the ground. Bred by Tim Peters of Peters Seed and Research.
Geranium Kiss – NEW!
68 days, Open-Pollinated, Dwarf Indeterminate
Another gem from the hyper-tress breeding work of Dr. Alan Kapuler.

These are perfect for snacking, canning, salads, and even good tomato sauce. Fruits are on the sweet side, with not too much juice, but very tasty. Staking is required because of the weight of the trusses. Excellent in containers and small gardens. Resistant to Late Blight.
Bush Early Girl – NEW!
54-65 days, F1 hybrid, Determinate
This determinate ‘sister’ of popular Early Girl has the same desirable qualities in a compact, true bush, perfect for large patio containers and small gardens.

Cherokee Green – NEW!
72-80 days, Open-Pollinated, Indeterminate
One of the best tasting, most flavorful of the green tomatoes. Essentially like Cherokee Purple in plant habit (big, leafy, fruit shape and size (6-12 oz.), texture and flavor (very meaty, bold, acidic, complex), but the interior ripens bright green, and the amber-green skin takes on a yellowish-hue when ripe.
