HEIRLOOM SLICER


Arkansas Traveler

Pink Tomato Ind.90 days

Five years ago I met a lady from New Orleans who said the best tomatoes in the world are Arkansas Traveler from her local farmer’s market. Every year I run out of these plants so fast that I guess she’s not the only one who likes them! These heirlooms are medium sized, pink-red, and very tolerant to heat. They are crack and disease resistant as well, but best of all they have an excellent well balanced flavor.

Black Prince

Purple-Black Tomato Ind.75 days

I grew Black Prince for the first time two years ago and decided it was a keeper. They have all the rich complex flavor and smooth texture of Black Krim, but are small (3-7 ounces) and round. Beautiful, iridescent red-black fruits with less cracking than Black Krim.

Some of my customers like the pink version of Brandywine better than the red, so I’ve brought it back for another season. The fruit are mostly large with a nice silky texture and a rich, sweet flavor.

Cosmonaut Volkov

Red Tomato Ind.65 days

Sometimes I have to try a new tomato variety just because of the name! Cosmonaut Volkov was a Russian (originally from Ukraine) cosmonaut who died in space in 1971. These plants are very sturdy as well as cold tolerant, making it a dependable early producer, even when summer is late in coming. The fruits are medium sized and red, and the flavor as described by Fedco is "sweet, rich, and full-bodied."

Crnkovic Yugoslavian

Pink Tomato Ind.70-80 days

No, that’s not a typo; that’s really how it’s spelled. I was asked to grow this tomato by several different market customers several years ago so I tried it. I picked 24 tomatoes off of one plant (in one day) at the peak of the season! And boy, those were delicious tomatoes! One of my new favorites for regular sized slicers.

Dester

Pink Tomato Ind.80 days

Dester is a tomato with an interesting story. It originated in Germany and was brought to America by Dr. Herbert Edgar Dester's ancestors. He lived in Berne, Indiana and was a medical doctor and a Mennonite missionary to India. He shared his seeds with his Amish housekeeper, Anna, who moved to Missouri and eventually shared the seeds to someone who shared them with Seed Saver's Exchange, which is where I get my seeds. So many steps to this delicious pink tomato. It is very large (8-24 ounces) and very tasty!
