Tomatoes | Cherry

Peacevine – Tremendous producer of 3/4 inch cherry tomatoes borne on trusses. Most fruit is red, although occasionally orange/gold; exceptionally delicious and high in vitamin C. Peacevine earned its name from its high content of gamma amino butyric acid, an amino acid that acts as a calming body sedative.
Sungold – Exceptionally sweet. Vigorous plants start yielding early and bear right through the season.
Black Cherry – Sweet and robust, heirloom flavor, high yielding.
Chocolate Cherry – These cherries have an attractive port wine colored flesh and skin with a comparably delicious and multifaceted flavor. The super productive plants produce trusses of 1 inch round fruit.
Supersweet 100 – A reliable cherry tomato with prolific yields of great tasting fruits produced in large clusters High resistance to fusarium wilt and verticillium wilt.

Tomatoes | Slicing
New Girl – Better flavor and more disease resistant than Early Girl (traditional favorite).
Estiva – Classic round red slicer. High producer resists cracking.
Black Krim – Dark red-purple fruit, rich sweet flavor. Typically places high in tomato taste trials. Very juicy. Heirloom from Russia with unique looking, large fruit.

Tomatoes | Sauce/Paste
Blue Beech – Well-adapted to Northern climates and resists disease and blossom end-rot better than others of its type. High yield varietal (red, not blue!) brought to Vermont from Italy during WWII.
Speckled Roman – Elongated plum tomato has little juice, good for fresh eating and cooks quickly into sauce. Excellent flavor.
Amish Paste – Farm favorite! Large sauce tomatoes are good in salads and great for sauce.
