here is a detailed description list and i have some pictures of my set up if you are interested I can send them to you...

1. AUNT RUBY`S GERMAN GREEN TOMATO (HEIRLOOMSEEDS.COM) (15)
• 80-95 days - A delightful change of pace! The large, 1 pound beefsteaks have a deliciously sweet, but spicy flavor, and grow in clusters of two or three. They turn a light green when ripe, with just a hint of yellow and a pink blush underneath. Indeterminate vines.
2. BEEFMASTER HYBRID TOMATO (FERRY-MORSE) (16)

5. BIG BOY HYBRID TOMATO (FERRY-MORSE) (19)
• 78 days - One of the most popular hybrid tomatoes! Plants produce large, deep red slicing tomatoes, some up to 2 pounds. Great for salads, canning or juice. Plants will produce until frost. Indeterminate.
6. BIG RED TOMATO (HEIRLOOMSEEDS.COM) (20)
• 85 days - We acquired the seeds for this tomato from a family in southern Illinois who had grown it for generations, and was always simply referred to as that "that big, red tomato". The large vines produce 16 to 24 ounce huge, sweet, red fruit, with just enough "bite" for that old fashioned, home grown taste. Perfect for sandwiches, salads or just eating out of your hand! This is the tomato you remember eating from your grandfather's garden! First introduced in the United States by Heirloom Seeds. Indeterminate vines.
7. BLACK FROM TULA TOMATO (HEIRLOOMSEEDS.COM) (21)
• 85 days - This rich and sweet tasting tomato provides plenty of foliage cover, while growing smoky, dark reddish black, luscious tomatoes. Originally from the Ukraine, it makes a terrific addition to any garden! Indeterminate vines.
8. BLACK PRINCE TOMATO (HEIRLOOMSEEDS.COM) (22)
• 85 days - This old Russian heirloom has become very popular in gourmet restaurants! The smooth, round fruits have a deep, garnet skin color with dark, reddish - brown flesh. Very juicy and flavorful! For best flavor, the tomatoes should be harvested when the shoulders still have a trace of green. A MUST for the tomato connoisseur! Indeterminate vines.
9. BLACK SEA MAN TOMATO (C.O.) (HEIRLOOMSEEDS.COM) (23)
• 75 days - This unique tomato has a rich, complex flavor as well as unusual coloring. The beautiful, chocolate-brown skin hides the delightful red and green middle. The 6-8 ounce potato-leafed fruits grow on short, compact vines. Determinate vines.
10. BLONDKOPFCHEN TOMATO (C.O.) (HEIRLOOMSEEDS.COM) (24)
• 75 days - This German variety will produce a large crop of rich and sweet, golden colored cherry-sized tomatoes. Resistant to cracking, the fruits grow in clusters and will continue to produce till frost. Indeterminate vines.

15. CARBON TOMATO (BAKER CREEK) (29)
• 90 days. Winner of the 2005 "Heirloom Garden Show" best-tasting tomato award. This variety has won taste awards from coast to coast in the last few years, so we were proud to locate a small supply of the seed. The fruit are smooth, large, and beautiful, being one of the darkest and prettiest of the purple types we have ever seen. They also seem to have an extra dose of the complex flavor dark tomatoes are famous for.
16. COSMONAUT VOLKOV TOMATO (C.O.) (HEIRLOOMSEEDS.COM) (30)
• 72 days - After seeing these beauties at a local tomato festival, we knew we had to learn more about them.

I have updated the list of varieties that have sold out. I am trying to get rid of the plants that are left this weekend. These transplants blow away anything that I have seen at all of the stores, so grab'em while they are left. Let me know if you have any questions, and happy gardening!
Thanks,
D

I'm impressed with your list! I've been a creature of habit, growing Super Fantanstic (I like the indeterminant plants that grow for so long) and cherry tomatoes. The heirloom tomatoes always seem to be something I see in magazines, but see few at my local nursery.

Do you have any you would recommend that produce as well as the Super Fantastic, that I should try? And maybe I should take a few off your hands.

Last year I got a little carried away with my tomatoes. You'll find it on the blog thread I've been running at http://www.dirtdoctor.com/newforum/root/nature-yard-garden-us-nature-t9033.html in the member blog section. My fridge filled with fruit, and that doesn't show the half of it. It seemed like too much, but then a friend loaned me his steam juicer and I made tomato sauce and tomato juice. If you have ever tasted home grown tomatoes in home made juice, you know that it is pure ambrosia. And all of a sudden I realized I didn't have nearly enough tomatoes for all of the juice I'd like to make!

(Of the three arrangements in this photo, when it is stacked all three parts then it works as a juice extractor, like a triple boiler.)

here are the following that I would recommend (from what is left) for more prolific plants (I have had great success with these plants, even last year in the torrential rains and crazy heat, but I do baby them all a great deal):

Black Prince
Cosmonaut Volkov
Druzba
Kellogg's Breakfast
Mule Team
Purple Calabash
Rio Grande
Soldacki
Swiss Alpine
Tangerine

take some time to read their descriptions above so you can get a bit of information on the characteristics of these plants

let me know if you are interested so I can hold back any plants that you want.

I haven't had a chance to see the tomato plants yet, but hear they are beautiful. Thanks so much to this young man, 2 good organizations will be able to test these varieties out:
1. The Gleaning Network of Texas: http://www.gleantexas.org/
who is partnering with an inner city youth organic garden and teaching them and their families the value of organic gardening and eating (community, family togetherness, high nutrition, emotional and physical well-being, etc.)

2. The Lake Highlands Community Garden donation garden: http://lhgarden.org/ Which provides organic produce to the North Texas Food Bank Nutrition Education/Operation Frontline program:
http://www.ntfb.org/au_programs-nutriti ... ntline.cfm

From what I understand, D Gardener is a young man that is budding horticultural star, entrepeneur and now a wonderful philanthropist! You bring me hope for our next generation--thank you so much for the contribution of the plants:) .

thank you so much for the extremely kind words! I hope that the plants work out great for them! There is no better feeling than passing on some of your babies to people that are going to put them to good use, for a great cause.
