  • Tomato, Auld Sod (Organic)

    Tomato, Auld Sod (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Red. 55 days. Det.

    Small bushy plants produce plum-shaped, red fruits that are firm walled but juicy with some tang. Large, early and heavy yields with some blight resistance. A great choice for dried tomatoes or anything plum or grape tomatoes are used for, such as pasta sauce or salad. Irish heirloom that grows well outdoors there and here in Oregon. Our original seed source was the Irish Seed Savers Association.

  • Tomato, Black Cherry (Organic)

    Tomato, Black Cherry (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Purple. 70 days. Indet.

    So you might be wondering why this tomato? Doesn’t everybody sell this tomato? Well, our penchant for obscurity sometimes goes too far and this tomato is just too good to pass up. Tall plants with huge yields of medium-sized, round purple-chocolate-black cherry fruits that taste so good, you think you are eating a big heirloom slicer. Sarah claims that these are her favorite tomato for flavor and they certainly are the first to be eaten when there is a choice. Andrew says they are “much, much” better than Sungold. A great addition to mixed cherry pints or to add some variation to your market display. Black Cherry can get Fusarium in outdoor production, but it is unstoppable in the greenhouse. A superb modern open pollinated tomato. Developed by Vince Sapp of Tomato Growers Supply and released in 2003.


  • Tomato, Columbianum Wildform (Organic)

    Tomato, Columbianum Wildform (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Red. 65-70 days. Indet.

    Massive tresses of medium-small red cherry fruits that ripen in clusters of 20 or more. Good rich flavor and ability to hold on the plant. Originating wild in Colombia. Some sources say this variety may be a separate species, Lycopersicon columbianum, however we believe it is a semi-wild member of the common tomato species Lycopersicon esculentum, aka. Solanum lycopersicum. Therefore we use Columbianum Wildform as the variety name. Originally given to The Seed Ambassadors Project in 2007 by tomato seed collector Gerhard Bohl when we visited him in Germany.

  • Dancing with Smurfs Tomato

    Tomato, Dancing With Smurfs (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Purple Red. 65-70 days. Indet.

    Delicious and very unique dark-purple topped red cherry tomatoes. Healthy, disease resistant plants have a purple blush and grow easily to 6 feet. A newer tomato color often referred to as indigo coloration. After we trialed many of these new indigo tomatoes we decided that Dancing With Smurfs is the best tasting. The purple/black color of these tomatoes comes from a natural cross with a wild purple fruited tomato made by Jim Myers, Professor and plant breeder at Oregon State University. His original releases were then further developed by many independent tomato breeders. This particular variety was bred by Tom Wagner from Everett, Washington, the founder of Tater Mater Seed, and the famous breeder of Green Zebra tomato. It was first offered commercially in 2012 by New World Seeds and Tubers.

  • Tomato, Dark Orange Muscat (Organic)

    Tomato, Dark Orange Muscat (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Orange. 65-75 days. Indet.

    Tall vines produce unique, large dark orange cherries with bronze shoulders and some green inside. Sweet, fruity flavor. This cherry tomato has traveled across the pond at least twice: Madeline McKeever of Brown Envelope Seeds in Ireland received this seed from a seed saver in Washington State while at an Organic Seed Alliance conference; and while we were in Ireland, we picked it up from her and brought it back to the Pacific Northwest.

  • Tomato, Estonian Yellow Cherry

    Tomato, Estonian Yellow Cherry (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Yellow. 65-70 days. Indet.

    Multi-flora type with up to 100 fruits in a cluster. High yield of small, round yellow fruits with pointy ends and good sweet intense flavor. Early, decorative, and cold tolerant plants. Fruits hold their quality through late fall when others split or rot, and hold well off the vine. Collected from an elderly Russian woman at a market outside of Tallinn, Estonia. Given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by Lila Towle, fellow Seed Ambassador and member of Frøsamlerne, the Danish seed saving organization.

  • Tomato, Galina's Cherry

    Tomato, Galina’s Cherry (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Yellow. 60 days. Indet. Potato leaf.

    Bright-yellow cherry with unique, perfectly balanced sweet and tart flavor that we never get tired of. Yields early and heavily all season long. Does well in cool weather conditions and in the heat. Keeps very well off the vine. When picked ripe, this tomato kept for 2 months piled in a tray in our living room and still tasted good (don’t ask, we don’t know why). It is a better keeper than Longkeeper! Andrew’s favorite cherry by far. Introduced to the US from Siberia by Bill McDorman of Seeds Trust in 1991. We sourced it in Wales when visiting Ben Gabel and Kate McEvoy of Real Seeds in 2007, who highly recommend it. Aka, Galina.

  • Gardener's Sweetheart Tomato

    Tomato, Gardener’s Sweetheart (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Red. 65 days. Indet.

    This adorable little tomato has a lot to offer. Cute, heart- shaped fruit are large for a cherry and have a really good rm texture and a lovely sweetness to match. This variety quickly became a favorite field snack tomato. Vigorous plants produce long trusses of split- resistant fruit. Bred by Will Bonsall in Maine from a cross between a cherry and a paste, and released in 2014. Thanks to Fruition Seeds for turning us on to this one.

  • Tomato, Gobstopper (Organic)

    Tomato, Gobstopper (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Yellow/Green. 60 days. Indet.

    Strong vines grow very tall. Early yellow cherry with green flesh that is slightly visible through the skin. Fruity and sweet, de-hybridized Sungold with a unique outcome. Less fruity than Sungold and with different flavor characteristics that everyone seems to like. Andrew has started to prefer this one to the ubiquitous hybrid, as he can delightfully eat many more of them without getting an overloaded tomato-belly. Other improvements are that the fruit is split resistant and keep very well before and after harvest. Along with Galina’s Cherry this is one of our favorites. Thrives in climates such as western Oregon and Ireland. Bred by Madeline McKeever of Brown Envelope Seeds, Ireland, and she was our original seed source. Introduced to the US by the Seed Ambassadors Project in 2008.

  • Tomato, Grappoli d'Inverno (Organic)

    Tomato, Grappoli d’Inverno (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Red. 60-70 days. Semi-det.

    Not for fresh eating. Small bushes ripen plum-sized fruit early that keep very well once picked. The mushy bland flavor when fresh is transformed into deliciousness once roasted. Also good dried. A selection of a type of tomato with strains grown in many regions of Italy for winter storage. Fruit is tied in ristras, hung in a cool place and store well for months. We saw this done in Italy and have successfully done it ourselves, making for the perfect homemade pizza topping all winter long.

  • Tomato, Harvest Luck (Organic)

    Tomato, Harvest Luck (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Red. 50-60 days. Indet.

    Ernteglück in German. Bright red, round classic cherry tomato. Long, forked tresses with up to 30 fruits. One of our favorites with perfectly balanced sweet flavor. A standby variety for our farmers market sales. Given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by seed steward Gerhard Bohl in Germany.

  • Tomato, Humboldtii Wild Pink
    Out of Stock

    Tomato, Humboldtii Wild Pink

    Solanum lycopersicum. Pink. 60-70 days. Indet.

    This tall wild cherry tomato produces large quantities of small fruits with pink skin and tart flavor. A little too acidic for some, but many people preferred it at our 2007 taste-off. A unique flavor in a world of super sweet cherry tomatoes. A friend told us that this type of tomato is found cultivated in parts of Central America and sometimes growing wild. Our original seed was received from collector Gerhard Bohl when we visited him in Germany in 2007.

  • Komohana Tomato

    Tomato, Komohana (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Red. 60 days. Det.

    Red grape tomatoes form on vines that grow to 3 ft. Firm flesh and balanced sweetness make Komohana an easy choice. We’re big fans of grape tomatoes since they tend to be more split resistant than standard cherries, and have fewer seeds per fruit. Would be a good variety for drying. This variety comes to us via our friend Glenn Teves, who has been working to adapt vegetables for seed production in the humid tropics of his home state of Hawaii. Komohana grows well for us here in Oregon, and should also do very well in hotter, more humid climates.

  • Tomato, Millefleur (Organic)

    Tomato, Millefleur (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Yellow. 60 days. Indet.

    Small, oblong, yellow cherry tomato with good flavor. Huge tresses of 50+ flowers on plants with wild-currant-tomato-like growth. Surprisingly, the ripe fruit keep very well once picked. Similar to Centiflor types with smaller, more tart fruit. Millefleur means ‘thousand flower’ in French. Variety originally sourced from Peter Bauwens, of De Nieuwe Tuin seed company in Belgium during our 2007 Seed Ambassadors Project trip.

  • Tomato, Pink Bumble Bee (Organic)

    Tomato, Pink Bumble Bee (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Pink Striped. 70 days. Indet.

    This 2012 release from Artisan Seeds in California is a great addition to the cherry tomato patch. Large fruits (for a cherry) are very eye-catching and fill pints quickly. Firm, round fruit are crack resistant and hold well off the plant. Flavor is a good tangy/tart.

  • Tomato, Polen Yellow Pear (Organic)

    Tomato, Polen Yellow Pear (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Yellow. 60 days. Indet.

    Small, golden pear-shaped fruit have good mild sweet flavor that is better than the common Yellow Pear. The big plants produce heavy yields late into the year. A multiflora type which can produce clusters of dozens of ripe fruit. Originally from a Polish gene bank, variety given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by the Irish Seed Savers Association.


  • Tomato, Purple Bumble Bee (Organic)

    Tomato, Purple Bumble Bee (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Purple Striped. 70 days. Indet.

    Similar to Pink Bumble Bee but purple with green marbling and a more oval shape. Productive, short indeterminate vines produce over a long season. Fruit are crack resistant and hold well off the plant. Flavor is complex, definitely not a sweet cherry but a good one nonetheless. Released in 2012 by Artisan Seeds in California.

  • Santiam Sunrise Tomato

    Tomato, Santiam Sunrise (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Orange. 70 days. Indet.

    This is our attempt at a Sungold F1 replacement. I say ‘attempt’ because many gardeners and plant breeders over the years have tried to create a sweet, fruity, orange cherry tomato. Flavor is comparable to Sungold but not quite as fruity, with a similar sweetness. Not tart like other attempts. Andrew likes it better than the old hybrid because it lacks the overwhelming taste that can get tiresome. He can eat Santiam Sunrise all day long. Tall indeterminate vines are productive and less prone to splitting than Sungold yet still tender skinned. A continuing selection from crosses with Russian cherry tomato material. Nearly stable, but occasional red-fruited plants still occur. We love it so far so let us know what you think!

  • Tomato, Sunshine Cherry (Organic)

    Tomato, Sunshine Cherry (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Yellow. 60 days. Indet.

    Small yellow cherry, high yields, good flavor. Great for market farmers. This tomato, along with Galina’s Cherry, is all a farm could ever need in a yellow cherry – it’s all we planted for yellow cherry production here at Open Oak Farm. Sunshine does it right. Originally from Peters Seed and Research in Riddle, Oregon.

  • Sweetie Tomato

    Tomato, Sweetie (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Red. 65 days. Indet.

    A good, reliable, sweet red cherry. If you’re looking for a classically delicious, productive and sweet cherry tomato, this is the easy choice. Fruit are 1-1½” in diameter. Skin is firm but not tough. Great for gardeners or for market production, as fruit are delicious right off the vine, productive, relatively firm and store well. A true basket filler that lives up to its name.

  • Tomato, Teardrop Red Grape

    Tomato, Teardrop Red Grape (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Red. 65 days. Indet.

    An excellent red grape type tomato with early teardrop shape and shiny red fruits. Firm texture that holds quality very well, is high yielding and fairly split resistant. Fruit contain very few seeds for a cherry tomato. We collected this variety from a seed saver in Denmark in 2007. Possibly selected from an English commercial hybrid of the same name.

  • Tomato, Wheatly's Frost Resistant (Organic)

    Tomato, Wheatly’s Frost Resistant (Organic)

    Solanum lycopersicum. Pink. 60 days. Indet.

    Tart, sweet, pink, grape-shaped fruit. Huge yields on big plants. A wonderful variety worth a try in the Northwest. We have found them to be very cool weather tolerant but not actually frost resistant. The most split resistant cherry we’ve seen. Seemingly blight resistant and certainly yields until frost. This seems to be the same strain available from the Seed Savers Exchange Yearbook in the US since the 1980s and from Sandhill Preservation Center. However, there was a variety listed as “Wheatley” in Gleckler’s Seed Catalog in the 1950s described as an early red globe from South Africa reportedly able to resist frosts down to 26ºF! This sounds mythical and definitely a distinctly different strain. We received our original seed from seed collector Gerhard Bohl in Germany.

  • Tomato, Zuckertraube

    Tomato, Zuckertraube

    3 out of 5
    Solanum lycopersicum. Red. 60 days. Indet.

    Red cherry tomato with balanced sweet flavor, high yields, and very tall vines. An excellent choice for red cherry production for market farms. The delicious flavor and easy picking, slightly larger than normal size, all make it attractive and a quick pint filler. Translated from German as Sugar Grape and sold in Germany as a cocktail tomato. Variety collected by The Seed Ambassadors Project from Bingenheimer Saatgut, a German biodynamic seed company.
