About Our Seeds
TomatoFest ® is one of America's first family-operated seed distributors to feature only Certified Organic, open-pollinated tomato seeds. Since 1990, we have personally grown, and harvested all of our heirloom tomato seeds, by hand, to ensure you the finest quality, true-to-type, tomato seeds. No hybrids. No GMOs. "Every Seed A Possibility."
We GUARANTEE our seeds! ~ Gary Ibsen, Dagma Lacey.

Carmel TomatoFest EventTake a look at our past TomatoFest Event. After a several year hiatus, We have now returned photos of the former Carmel TomatoFest Event (1991-2008), to our website to provide tomato lovers everywhere the opportunity to visually visit what was called “America’s Favorite Tomato Festival”, the most extensive and heralded tomato tasting and tomato culinary event in the country held at the famed Quail Lodge Resort in Carmel Valley, California.
Through our Tomato Seed Donation Program we support community and urban garden projects, school gardens, and organizations that promote education and sustainable living through organic gardening.
We have assembled probably the best Tomato Seed Collections you will find anywhere to help get you started with some winning varieties.
We offer tomatoes in many color groups: Purple/Black tomatoes; Yellow/Orange tomatoes; Pink tomatoes; Red tomatoes; Bi-colored tomatoes; and Other-Colored tomatoes (green tomatoes, white tomatoes, even blue tomatoes).

We probably have the largest selection of purple/ black heirloom tomatoes. Don't miss the opportunity to mix these in your garden with your other colors.
