Hi all :)
It's the off season for gardening, but I've got a few questions regarding tomato varieties that might be desirable in northern Illinois.
For the last two years I've been growing my own heirloom tomatoes. I went with four different varieties at home and six varieties at work. The women who runs the nursery where I buy my vegetables is open to suggestions. She usually gets around 40 varieties of tomatoes and many of them are heirlooms :roll:
Here is a link to the 2009 varieties. Does anyone have any suggestions about must have heirlooms? or must keep heirlooms?
Her selection of tomatoes is much better than her selection on other vegetables. Have you got any heirloom suggestions for other veggies?
Last year I tried Thessaloniki, Pruden’s Purple’, Green Zebra and Garden Peach at home. At work I had Green Zebra, Garden Peach, Julia Child, Matt's Wild Cherry, Chocolate Cherry and Mule team.
All were very good and together they were even better! My least favorite were probably Matt's Wild Cherry, just too sweet.
