Official 2015 Tomato Variety List

Indigo Rose - Read more about the "Purple tomato" here.

Carry-overs from 2013 & 2014

Big Rainbow
Orange/yellow/red marble. Large. 85-90 days. Origin: The Gods. Flavor profile: perfection & worth the long harvest wait.

Black Krim
Dark red. Medium. 80 days. Heirloom. Origin: Russian. Flavor profile: rich, sweet.

New for 2015

Cosmonaut Volkov
Red. Medium-large. 60-75 days. Open-pollinated heirloom. Origin: Dniepropetrousk, Ukraine. Flavor profile: Rich, deep with a balance between sweet & tangy.

Indigo rose
Dark purple/red. 1-3 ounces. 70-80 days. Huge amounts of anthocyanins in skin. Darkest tomato. Flavor profile: More of a novelty, newly released (2012) variety, so there's not much info on the flavor profile available. I guess I will have to find out for myself!

Jersey Devil
Ruby-red. 5-6 inch long. 90 days. Pointed & pepper-like. Few seeds. Good for sauces/paste. Is an ancestor to the "Jersey Giant."

Pineapple
Yellow. Giant. 75-95 days. Red starburst in center. Flavor profile: super sweet, fruity.

Red Ponderosa (Crimson Cushion or "Beefsteak")
Red. Huge. 85 days. One of the original "Jersey tomatoes." Flavor profile: Everything.

Nectar Hybrid
Red. Cherry variety/small clusters. 65 days. Flavor profile: Ultra sweet.

I have a variety of tomato seeds in my seed box, so I may throw in a couple of different ones when the time comes. For now, this is my list. Seeds bought and ordered (or pulled out of storage)!
