Solanum lycopersicum. 70 days. Indet.
8-16 oz fruits ripen much earlier than most large pink tomatoes. Medium-large sized, pink beefsteak fruit with long, eyelash-like calyx.

Tomato, Katja (Organic)$3.25–$6.00
Solanum lycopersicum. 60 days. Indet.
Bushy plants produce pink 3-5″ slicer tomatoes. Very early & reliable. Gorgeous & delicious. Sarah thinks this is our best tomato (*objectively*) & Andrew thinks it is one of our favorites (subjectively). Does very well even in cool, shady gardens. Ripened a tasty 1+lb fruit (and many smaller fruits) grown outside at Corvus Landing Farm in Neskowin, Oregon, in the summer of 2010— the year of “no ripe tomatoes” for many Oregon coast gardeners. Originates in the city of Slyudyanka, on the shores of Lake Baikal in Siberia, where it is grown outdoors. It is not clear whether it was developed by Katarina Konovna Sviatova (Katja) herself, or if it is an old Russian commercial variety. Received from Søren Holt of The Toad’s Garden, & Frøsamlerne, the Danish seed savers, who received it from the Sviatova family.
Tomato, Pruden’s Purple (Organic)$3.25–$12.00
Solanum lycopersicum. 72 days. Indet. Potato Leaf.
This is one of the more common tomato varieties that we felt compelled to add to our catalog because it’s just so excellent. Beautiful giant pink fruit that no tomato lover could possibly resist. Earlier to mature & more productive than the classic Brandywine, Pruden’s Purple still has that sweet heirloom flavor even with our often cool summers. Silky texture is great for fresh eating, whether on sandwiches or just sliced with a little salt. Yum! Fruit can grow to over 1 lb, have excellent flavor & texture, & resist cracking. A remarkably easy to grow variety for its size. Resistant to many foliar diseases & even reputed to have some field resistance to the dreaded tomato blight. Not bad for an old fashioned tomato.
Tomato, Rosabec (Organic)$3.25–$12.00
Solanum lycopersicum. 60-70 days. Det.
Awesome early pink slicer tomato from Quebec. Being from another short season climate it is perfect for the Pacific Northwest. 6-8 oz pink globe fruit, excellent flavor & yields. Blemish free & good firmness make it great for market. The tall determinate bushes are easily caged or staked with a Florida weave trellis. Bred by Roger Doucet in 1975 at the Station Provinciale de Recherches Agricole in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, Canada.
Tomato, Sarah Purple (Organic)$3.25–$6.00
Solanum lycopersicum. 65 – 70 days. Indet.
Early, very round, medium-sized pink fruit. Excellent, juicy, & flavorful. Thin skin is blemish free & tender. It is very delicious picked ripe from the vine. A little like Rose de Berne, the vibrant pink fruit are captivating to look at. Given to the Seed Ambassadors Project in 2007 by Gerhard Bohl, a seed steward in Germany.
Tomato, Siberian Giant Pink (Organic)$3.25–$12.00
Solanum lycopersicum. 80 days. Indet.
Known in Russian as Sibirskiy Velikan Rozovyi. Truly giant pink beefsteaks form on tall floppy vines. Deliciously juicy & meaty. Usually Siberian tomatoes are on the early side but this special tomato is an exception. We thought it would be too late for us here in the Northwest but it was just fine. Like many main season tomatoes the yield is huge but more concentrated in the late season. It fills the role that Brandywine often would, but we like it better in every way. Sourced originally from Tatiana Kouchnareva, the creator & owner of the wonderful fact-filled website, Tatiana’s TOMATObase. She originally received this variety from Tamara Yaschenko, a tomato collector from Siberia.
Tomato, Tiffen Mennonite (Organic)$3.25–$12.00
Solanum lycopersicum. 80 days. Indet. Potato Leaf.
This is one of the tomatoes we have chosen to replace the Brandywine. We have found it to be a bit earlier to mature & much heavier yielding. The thing that really makes it a winner is that it sweetens up better in our climate. Big, pink 16 oz beefsteak fruits are somewhat variable in shape, many with a rather ribbed appearance & some with a more flattened globe shape. If you like big, richly sweet heirlooms this one is for you. Has even won a few Oregon tomato taste-offs (we are not making this part up)! Heirloom variety from the Mennonites of Wisconsin. First introduced to Seed Savers Exchange in 1985 by Thane H. Earle of Whitewater, Wisconsin.
