Many gardeners who live in hot/humid tropical climates have requested that we feature an heirloom tomato seed collection for those whose garden is restricted to containers and patio gardening. One such gardener is a friend who lives in a retirement community and who let me know she no longer has a shovel or land to dig in but intends to feed herself and her friends from the planted pots on her patio.

Well, here it is. We have assembled a collection of short, determinate, tomato varieties that are well adapted to growing in hot & humid growing conditions. This tomato collection features favorite heirloom tomato varieties of different fruit sizes, and a diversity of beautiful colors and delicious fruit flavors. (30 plus seeds/pack)

Cost: $19, a savings of $5.90 off individual seed pack price

Compact, bushy, determinate, tomato plants produce 4-6 ounce, meaty, uniformly-round, delicious, bright-yellow tomatoes that are very sweet (almost seem acid-free). A wonderful choice to add a zesty spark to tomato salads or a splash of bright yellow color to your favorite salsas. Tomatoes are good for slicing, therefore, they are perfect for sandwiches. Fruit holds up well in hot, humid growing regions. Determinate. 68 days.
  • Homestead 24 - Great for hotter growing regions in the South since this variety sets fruit under even in hot weather. Big, leafy vines produce huge amounts of smooth, red, round 8 oz. fruits with exceptionally good taste. Resistance to cracking. Determinate. 80 days.
