seedling list

Well, the inventory is finally complete.  I'm posting here a list of all the seedlings we have left to pass along.  They are $3 each, and will mostly come in 9 oz. plastic cups.
Paul and Lulah will come to town Saturday morning, May 4, to the Farmer's Market.  There are plenty of some, and few of others.  Place your orders early and we'll set them aside for you. First come first serve.

We may have a few dozen eggs available as well.  Let us know if you want some.

We hope you're all enjoying this long slow Spring.

the list:
Peace Vine - classic little red fruit.

Black Cherry -  Beautiful dusky purple-brown. They have that rich flavor that makes black tomatoes famous. Large vines yield very well.

Honey Drop - orangey-yellow, juicy with a fruity flavor - a lot of genetic diversity in this variety - can bear any variety of shapes and colors.

Frosted Green Doctor - these cherries are green when fully ripe - looks like frosted grapes.  sweet fruit.


Polish Lingusia - huge, sausage shaped paste tomato with excellent flavor. 

San Marzano La Padino - classic paste tomato - low water content and open seed cavities - high yielding. 


Cosmonaut Volkov - great flavor on a standard red heirloom from the Ukraine.

Big Beef - hybrid - combining traditionally delicious flavor with today's disease resistance. 

Goliath - hybrid - long season with wide adaptability and disease resistance.

Mortgage Lifter - large smooth fruit with rich sweet taste. 

Rose de Berne - Swiss heirloom with sweet and sturdy 4-8 oz fruits.


Paul Robeson - If you know us, you know this one is a favorite - medium sized fruits with interesting navels and intense flavor.  We've saved this seed for several years and feel that it's well adapted now.

Sara Black - purplish brown that we're trialing this year.

Morado - large black tomato (up to 1 lb), purplish pink with green shoulders.


Jubilee - old standard with sweet mild flavor - good size and yield.

Woodle Orange - good main season producer of round tangerine colored fruits.  One of our favorites.

Dad's Sunset - trialing this one - claims to be a good keeper.

Djena Lee - another trial variety - this one won first prize at the Chicago Fair 10 years in a row.


Lillian's Yellow - meaty creamy flesh in a light yellow fruit.  bi-lobed and lopsided, but great flavor on an unusual beefsteak type.



New Ace - hybrid,  thin-walled, not blocky, turn red early, good for the home garden.

Carolina Wonder - heirloom (our first year saving, so could be variable in its type) - nice green bells that turn bright red when mature. 
Golden Treasure - one of our favorite keepers - Italian heirloom - long golden yellow fruits, so sweet!


Jalapeno - classic - brown nettign appears as fruit ripens from dark green to dark red.

Lemon Drop - Seasoning pepper from Peru ripens to a clear lemon yellow, sometimes with a dark purple blush. The flavor is a very clean, uncomplicated, slightly citrus-y heat. 2-foot plants are covered with the thin-walled, conical fruits which reach 2-3 inches in length, with very few seeds.

Dorset Naga - The Dorset Naga, a chili from Bangladesh, has a Scoville rating of more 1.6 million units, making it the world's hottest chili.

Bhut Jalokia - Also known as Ghost Pepper, Naga Morich. Legendary variety, one of the world's hottest peppers, if not the hottest, with readings in excess of 1,000,000 Scoville units! Bhut Jolokia starts out slow but eventually makes tall plants, exceeding 4 ft in favored locations. The thin-walled, wrinkled, pointed fruits reach 2-3" in length, ripening mostly to red.

African Cayenne - Large vigorous Cayenne pepper.
