The best heirloom mix ever

Indeterminate

This Rainbow Blend Heirloom Tomato Seeds is simply the best mix of heirloom varieties I've ever seen. You get 6 truly unusual and interesting varieties, all distinctively different, for one low price. If you love the fascinating forms and rich, full flavor of heirloom tomatoes, Rainbow Blend Heirloom Tomato is the mix you must grow.

Collection Includes:
Aunt Ruby's German Green (85 to 90 days): is a large beefsteak on indeterminate vines. When fully ripe it will be a light green color with a tint of yellow and a faint pink blush. The fruit is 12 to 16 ounces, very sweet and spicy with a succulent bite like no other.

Big Rainbow (80 to 102 days): is an indeterminate variety hailing from Pol County, Minnesota. The 6-foot plants sport enormous, heavily ribbed fruits of gold with streaks of red, not only on the skin but right through the flesh, too, for terrific plate appeal. These gigantic tomatoes weigh in at up to 2 pounds apiece. You know they're ripe when the stem end is deep gold and the blossom end bright red. The largest of the fruits are subject to cat-facing and cracking, but the flavor is so incredible, it's worth it.

Black from Tula (75 to 85 days): is a Russian variety with an indeterminate habit and the largest black tomatoes ever grown. These fruits are 4 to 5 inches in diameter and slightly flattened (8 to 12 ounces on average). They're actually deep mahogany-brown to purple, often with green shoulders. The rich, smoky flavor of this tomato is amazing. And the plants set fruit well in hot weather, making them a great choice for the south and southwest. Rare.

Brandywine Red (80 TO 100 days): is a large indeterminate variety on potato leaf vines. The fruit can weigh up to 2 pounds and is a deep, rich red when ripe. Brandywine is one of the best known of the heirlooms, and one bite will tell you why—the flavor is incredible.

Cherokee Purple (80 to 100 days): is an indeterminate variety with rather short vines. The fruit is slightly flattened, about 10 to 12 ounces, and colored a purple-brown-pink combination with green gel until it ripens. Full of old-fashioned "real tomato" flavor.

Dixie Golden Giant (85 to 100 days): is a very mild tomato superb for slicing. Fruits can get up to 2 or even 2½ pounds on very vigorous vines. The color is a rich golden-yellow at maturity, and the flavor is quite sweet. An Amish family has been growing this variety since the 1930s.

Start Rainbow Blend Heirloom Tomato Seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart.

Sprouting Heirloom Tomato Blend seeds

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I was intrigued by the descriptions of these heirloom tomatoes. I planted the entire 30 seeds of the packet. 21 of them sprouted. The only way to distinguish between the varieties is to wait and see what they grow up to be, except for the Brandywine Red tomato. It has potato-leaf vines and is distinctive. 8 of the 21 plants are Brandywine Red. I look forward to this summer to see what the others are. Hope there is some of all six varieties. Most of the sprouts are vigorous.
