339SWEET'N'BRIGHTCert. BD/OG(Hellfrucht)80 days.Indet. A small salad tomato, with great disease resistance for early and mid-season harvest with cascades of bright red glossy 2-3 oz. round fruit. Heavy producer in both the greenhouse and the field. Makes very attractive clusters of uniform fruits for market displays. Slightly thicker skin makes this variety hold well in transport, with less cracking in the field, but it does not sacrifice flavor! Ours were very early outside, and produced until frost. If your customers or CSA members like round, red tomatoes, this is a workhorse variety, reliable and delicious.

328PRINCIPE BORGHESECert. BD/OG75 days.HEIRLOOM from Italy. An unbelievably abundant producer! Used for making dried tomatoes. Bushy plants with heavy clusters of small meaty 1-2 oz. plum-shaped fruits with few seeds. This tomato is somewhat mildly flavored raw, it is good for sauce, and very delicious dried. If you don’t have enough sun or a dehydrator, you can dry these in your oven at the lowest temperature. We recommend drying them on baking paper in halves, skin side down, until leathery, but not crispy. Store in an airtight jar or freeze for long storage. Throw these into the blender with balsamic vinegar, salt, olive oil, garlic and basil (fresh or frozen) for an unforgetable salad dressing.

302MATT'S WILDCert. BD/OG65-70 days.Indet.This little grape-sized red cherry tomato is packed with sweet, juicy flavor and is a quick favorite for all who try it. Best germinating at a constant 78 degrees or warmer. Once germinated, we find the plants remain healthy and produce abundantly even during cool, rainy New York summers. These are consistently the very last of all our tomatoes to succumb to blight in difficult years. Produces beautiful trusses which can be harvested complete for farmers’ markets, as they store better and are attractive when the whole truss is clipped, instead of picking individual tomatoes. Teresa Arellanos de Mena from Hidalgo in eastern Mexico collected and shared this variety with her friend and colleague, Matt Liebman of the U. of Maine Ag School, who saved seeds and passed them on to Johnny’s Selected Seeds. Thanks to Johnny’s for permission to offer this variety, and to Matt and Teresa who saved it.
