Five New Project Dwarfs - Available Now!

heirloom tomato basket

Update 2/12/2014:  I’m honored to be one of the vendors participating in the introduction of the 2014 Dwarf Project releases. The five varieties I will be introducing are:

I will be co-releasing Big Green Dwarf, Wherakowhai, and Dwarf Blazing Beauty with Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds.

I will be co-releasing Boronia with Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds and Knapp’s Seeds.

I will be co-releasing Rosella Crimson with Remy’s Sample Seed Shop.

Postage Note – Effective 1/1/2014: To keep from passing the upcoming January postage price increase to my customers, I will be  shipping orders of 6 packs of seeds (or greater) in bubble mailers but smaller orders will now be shipped in #10 envelops. Domestic orders over $25 are still shipped free of shipping/handling charges!

Cart errors - When you add items to your cart and then take a break (for over an hour), the items in your cart may be gone when you return to access the cart or to add more items. The cart may display cryptic php errors and might not clear properly with some browsers. If this happens, please refresh the page and the cart should reset to zero items. This problem is one I am working on, thank you for your understanding.

I have listed three Heritage Tomato Seed introductions. Thanks to my sister, Marla, for doing the work on these: Ania, Butter Apple, and Zachary.

A listing of all new varieties can be found here.

This was another busy season – I trialed about 100 new-to-me heirloom/OP tomato varieties at my Bonsall, CA growing grounds. Thank you to my tomato growing friends from around the world who sent many new varieties to try – I appreciate it – there were some really great new finds!

- I still offer free shipping on all domestic orders over $25.00, and for international orders over $50.00. Domestic shipping charges for orders under $25.00 remains at $2.95, – All domestic orders of 4 or more packets will be shipped in bubble mailers. Shipping charges for all international orders (under $50.00) is $3.95 and will be shipped in one or more regular #10 envelops. If you prefer to have your international order shipped in a bubble mailer with a custom form please contact me before you order.

Except for seeds grown by my sister in Sacramento (thanks Marla!), I grow and harvest all of my own seed at my farm in Bonsall, Ca (north of San Diego). I use the fermentation method of seed processing. I closely monitor and rogue seed plants suspected of systemic infections (i.e. fusarium). Many seed plants are isolated or bagged, but most are not, so expect a crossing percentage of ~5%. If you have questions about a specific variety please contact me.

Best wishes to all for a bountiful 2014!
