Once a very common home garden crop, ground cherries have recently become increasingly hard to find. Excellent citrus flavor, can be used fresh in salads or for preparing jams, pies, and sauces. Bushy plants grow 24” tall, are extremely productive and great for containers. Encased in a paper-like husk and will store 3-4 weeks under cool & dry conditions.
First-early determinate red cherry tomato. High-yielding compact plants. Globe-shaped, 20–25 gm. fruits have a deep red color. Thick-walled, meaty, and flavorful, with good keeping quality on or off the vine. Widely adapted. Developed by Washington State University. Determinate. USDA Certified Organic.
Sugar Sprint produces excellent early yields of edible, stringless pods that are sweet and tender. The compact 26″ vine has intermediate resistance to PEV and PM, averages two pods per node, and lends itself well to either ground or short stake production. The 3″ pods can be enjoyed fresh off the vine, steamed or used in stir-fry.
Here’s the old standard pear-shaped variety for paste and juice. Large determinate plants spread out the harvest period, but total yield is heavy. The Roma tomato has a relatively high viscosity and soluble solids for thick, red sauce, and its firm texture works well in salads.
Huge yields of medium sized 3-4 lobed fruits. Has apparent tolerance to blossom drop as nearly every flower produces a pepper. Widely adapted but performs particularly well in cool climates where bell peppers are difficult to grow successfully. Best for early crops and particularly good for pack sales.
