A variety of colors, sizes, and flavors. Some classics that Deep Rooted has grown for years plus some fun new ones to try.

 

Alice's Dream: Indeterminate. A super beautiful beefsteak tomato, bursting with antioxidants and an incredible depth of flavor. This medium/large beefsteak is golden yellow with red striping and a blue blush. 80 days.

 

Berkeley Tie-Dye Green: Indeterminate. Incredibly colorful and delicious large-fruited slicing variety! Fruit runs 8 to 16 ounces. Exterior color is green with stripes in red and yellow. But the flesh is truly tri-color! Creamy green flesh infused with various shades of red and yellow. 75-80 days.

 

Black Beauty: Indeterminate. The darkest tomato we know! A dark, meaty, very rich-fleshed tomato with extreme anthocyanin expression (same antioxidant in blueberries and blackberries). So dark that some tomatoes turn solid blue-black on the skin. Deep red flesh is among the best tasting of all tomatoes. Rich, smooth and savory with earthy tones. Hangs well on the vine and stores very well, and the flavor improves with room-temperature storage. 80 days.

 

Black Krim: Indeterminate. Dark red-purple fruit, rich sweet flavor. One of the best. It always places high in tomato taste trials. It's very juicy.

 

Blue Beauty: A modest beefsteak-type slicer, weighing up to 8 ounces. Good flavor and outstanding antioxidant content! Gorgeous, deep blue-black shoulders. Indeterminate. 80 days.

 

Brandywine: Indeterminate. Deep red fruits grow to 8-12 oz, excellent flavor and very productive.

 

Brown Sugar: Indeterminate. A Russian heirloom with silky texture and a smoky, complex flavor. Black tomatoes are famous for their rich, nuanced flavor, and the 7-oz., globe- shaped fruit of Brown Sugar does not disappoint. This is a gourmet, sugar-sweet tomato, just perfect for snacking, slicing, cooked dishes, and sauces.  75-95 days.

 

Cherokee Purple: Indeterminate. Beautiful deep dusky purple-pink color, superb sweet flavor, and very large sized fruit.

 

German Pink: Indeterminate. One of the tomatoes that originally ignited the heirloom movement in America, this variety originated in Bavaria. It made its U.S. debut in 1883, brought here by Michael Ott, a great-grandfather of Seed Savers Exchange co-founder Diane Ott Whealy. The luxuriant potato-leaf plants give high yields of 1- to 2-lb, nearly seedless meaty fruit. The prestigious Slow Foods USA Ark of Taste enthused: “a full sweet flavor, even floral, and...tender skinned.” This gorgeous pink fruit is extremely versatile, excellent for canning and freezing but also for slicing and juicing. This one is sure to become a favorite in your garden! 85-90 days.

 

Gold Medal: Indeterminate. Yellow fruit is blushing with rosy red that radiates from the blossom end. Sweet and mild, with little acid. 75 days.

 

Green Zebra: Indeterminate. Beautiful chartreuse with deep lime-green stripes, very attractive. Very rich tasting, sweet with a sharp bite to it (just too good to describe!). 78 days.

 

Kellogg's Breakfast: Indeterminate. Large orange beefsteak fruits grow to 1-2 lbs. Rich flavor with good acid to sugar balance, very productive.

 

Lucid Gem: Indeterminate. 4-5 oz. fruit, beefsteaks. This is a red/yellow interior sister of Blue Beauty. First they ripen yellow, than more of an orange when very ripe. Very attractive with the black anthocyanin splashes really contrasting with the lighter colored skin. Good to very good production. Mid-mid/late. Flavor is very good, much like a good bi-color. Sweet with fruity tones.Very meaty, very few seeds.

 

Mortgage Lifter: Kentucky family heirloom grown since the 1930s by three generations of James Halladay’s family. In a trial of 25 Mortgage Lifter types, Halladay’s produced the best crops of 1-2 pound pink beefsteak fruits. Exceptionally meaty and typically crack-free. Great old-fashioned tomato flavor. Indeterminate, 

 

Nyagous: Dark mahogany black tomatoes that produce in clusters of six. Productive and blemish-free. Sweet, complex flavor. Indeterminate. 80 days.

 

Paul Robeson: Dusky brick red fruits with dark green shoulders and red flesh; 6-12 ounces. Known for its distinctive flavor—smoky and earthy with a perfect acid/sweet balance. Indeterminate. 90 days.

 

Pink Berkeley Tie Dye: Indeterminate. 8-16 oz. fruits are dark pink with green striping, and the flesh is pink with yellow streaks. The flavor is outstanding!

 

Red Zebra:  Gorgeous 2½" round fruits are blood-red overlaid with jagged carrot-orange stripes. Very productive. Slightly tart flavor. Indeterminate. 75-80 days.

 

Striped German:  Bicolor red-and-yellow fruit. The flat, medium-to-large tomatoes with variable shoulder ribbing are shaded yellow and red. The marbled interior looks beautiful sliced. Complex, fruity flavor and smooth texture. 78 days.

 

Summer of Love: Indeterminate.  This improved Berkeley Tye-Die produces a larger yield and ripens earlier. It has all the great colors and flavor of the original BTD. A good improvement to an excellent tomato. Beautiful, tasty and now more productive with an earlier harvest.

 

Tasty Evergreen: Indeterminate. A favorite of Ben Quisenberry, a tomato collector from Syracuse, Ohio. Originally introduced by Gleckler Seedmen of Metamora, Ohio, in 1956. A green-when-ripe variety with medium-sized beefsteak fruits. Grapefruit yellow when fully ripe; flesh and gel remain green inside. Luscious and tender, strong sweet flavor. Very productive. 75 days.

 

Thorburns Terra Cotta: Incredible flavor, color and history! Introduced in 1893 by James Thorburn of New York.. With honey-brown skin, orange-pink flesh, and green seed mass, this is an eye-catching slicer with an out-of-this-world flavor. The tomato produces heavily during mid-season and then drops off quickly once cool weather sets in. 75 days.
