With all the varieties of tomatoes we are carry
this year, we know it can be overwhelming to choose just the right one
for your garden. To help you in your selection we’ve asked our team
which tomatoes are their favorite and why.
Pick: Early Girl
A very attractive medium size tomato. Great for slicing and canning. I
like this tomato because its not too large and it is one of the first in
the season you can start picking. Indeterminate.
This small, plum size fruit can be found in many Italian dishes. Very
meaty, and not much juice or seeds makes it fabulous for salsa and
Caprese salads. Determinate.
Pick: Yellow Pear
In the cherry tomato family, this tiny tomato is fun to eat. The small,
yellow, pear-shaped fruit adds a bright splash of color to your salads.
Also great to eat straight off its highly productive vines.
Pick: Sweet 100
This vigorous plant produces lots of the sweetest, small, cherry-shaped
tomatoes. Like most tomatoes, it has high levels of Vitamin C, but much
tastier than your daily vitamin. Great treat to pack for a lunch snack.
Very sweet and a little nutty in flavor, this tomato is like candy on
the vine. It’s a good thing that it produces lots of golden colored
round tomatoes or none would ever make it inside for dinner. Great in
Pick: Oregon Spring
A very meaty tomato, and very disease resistant, it was bred to perform
well in our Northwest gardens. It produces fruit early in the season and
is perfect for creating your own fresh tomato sauce. Determinate.
Pick: Better Boy
This tomato is huge, firm and meaty. It’s incredible just simply sliced
and served on sandwiches, but can also be used for making your own
tomato sauces. Indeterminate.
