You are here: Home > Shop Organic Heirloom Tomatoes > RARE Seeds - To Be Discontinued

We have selected a number of tomato varieties that we will be discontinuing to reduce our annual growing and harvesting expenses. Most of these varieties are not carried by other seed suppliers and are considered RARE and difficult to find.

Even if you may not need additional tomato seeds for this year, if you are interested in growing some of these hard-to-find tomato varieties in the future, we suggest that you consider obtaining these varieties before they are gone. (Note: Generally, seeds should be viable for five to ten years if stored in cool, dark, dry location. There are records of people having successful germination with seeds more than 20 years old.)

For almost thirty years Dagma and I have made it our mission to collect heirloom and open-pollinated tomato seeds from seed collectors, home gardeners and farmers from around the world in an effort to sustain these precious heirlooms and their histories for future generations. We regret letting go of these tomato varieties because many of these are historically notable for their outstanding and unique features (i.e., family heirlooms, exceptional taste, production and disease resistance).

However, in the past few years we have experienced a dramatic increase to our farming costs and now find ourselves unable to incur the added costs to grow and maintain these tomato varieties, especially when some of these may only sell fewer than five packs a year.

As America's most respected source for organic tomato seed, TomatoFest would love to keep you as our valued customer...and we also encourage you to save some your own seeds for your future — maybe just a variety or two of your favorite tomatoes. Seed-saving is easy.

NOTE: There is currently a national shortage of tomatoes. And there is a national shortage of seeds. Due to COVID inspiring an explosion of never-before-gardeners to grow their own foods for better nourishment, lower food costs, and convenience, more people are working at home with time to garden. Therefore, many seed companies are struggling to keep ahead of the demand.

We encourage you to purchase any of these deserving, soon-to-be 'orphans' for your own garden to keep the heirloom variety sustained. To assure you the best possibility of finding the seeds you wish — Order your seeds early.
