T71.  Jitomate bulito – 90 days.  Very late for this region. This is an old Zapotec natives variety from S. American states.  Tomatoes are elongated paste types with a pointy end.  Good variety.

T72. Black Brandywine – 72 days.  I am not sure if I would call this a Brandywine or not.  But that is what the package said.  I would say it is a salad tomato.  It is about 2-3 oz. with soft flesh, definitely on the black side, but must be eaten right away as it is not a good keeper.  Fair production, it is good for having for eating right off the vine.

T80. Caspian Pink – 67 days.  A well known Pink tomato, about 4-6 oz. fair sized for slicing, canning, fresh eating.  Like a larger Brandywine, smooth and tasty.

T81. Debarao – 78-85 days.  A very late paste tomato.  Large oblong paste tomatoes, rounded blossom end and full meaty texture.  Not that many on a plant but the size is very good.

T82. Fierette – 75 days.  Originally obtained from the Devonian Botanical Gardens seeds, these tomatoes are large, elongated with a point on the growing end.  Massive clusters, large plants, later but worth the extra time starting indoors.  Good for canning, sauce and paste, or salsa.  A winner for sure.  In the Devonian trials they said the staff thought they were the best tasting of the kinds they grew that year.

T83. Moon Glow – 78 days.  Later type orange medium to large sized slicers or fresh eating tomato.  I love orange tomatoes for flavor.  What can I say?  They make the most beautiful addition to salads and stews.

T84. Pink Brandywine – 70-75 days.  Larger sized tomatoes, about 5-6 oz., smooth and shaped like typical Brandywines, possibly a bit smoother and not reaching a deep color like typical red tomatoes.  They were very tasty and productive.

T85. Portugal – 67-70 days.  Obtained from seed from Portugal from a fellow who travelled there.  These tomatoes are large paste types that are very smooth and beautiful.  Used for salsa or sauce as well.

T86. Red Beauty – 65-70 days.  These tomatoes are typical of what you would find in the store, long keepers, beautiful round, flawless perfection on the skin.  Tough skinned, so they do not easily bruise, flesh is firmer like a store tomato and they grow in large clusters on the vine.  They ripen in sequence for continual fresh picking. Limited offering 10 seeds.

T87.  Striped Cavern – 65 days.  There were fun to grow as well.  They are a stuffing tomato, not quite as large as the yellow stuffer, but a bit more productive.  They have 2 hollow cavities, where the seeds cluster around in a brain-like mass which are easily removed.  The flesh ripens from light yellow to a deeper orange with darker stripes.  Beautiful tomato and good taste.

T88. Striped German – 78 days.  These tomatoes are a bit smaller and the stripes are not as noticeable as I thought they would be.  They are good slicers for salads or fresh eating, but are a bit later for longer season growers.  Large sprawling plants.

T89. Vintage Wine – 80 days.  One of my new favorites.  These are the most interesting colored tomatoes you will ever see.  They have a Brandywine type shape, can reach up to a pound each in some cases, with deep green striping on wine colored tomatoes.  Very good flavor but you have to catch them early as they are not that great a keeper on wet years.

T93.  Black Zebra – 79 days. 2-3” fruits on smaller plants, remaining dark red with green streaks.  Firm and flavorful.

T94.  Green Zebra – 79 days.  Similar to black zebra, but remaining more green with yellow or orange stripes.

T95.  Azoychka – 75 days.  Large yellow fruits, with soft melt in your mouth flesh of a mild flavor.  For those who like a sweet acid-free fruit.  Beefsteak type.

T96.  Mennonite Orange – 78 days.  If you like orange tomatoes you are going to be blown away by this one.  Flavorful and huge, these are a favorite.

T97.  Bear Claw – 80 days.  Later in the season, but produces medium sized, multi-lobed fruits of a light to medium red color. Good flavor and fun to grow.

T98.  Pineapple – 80 days.  A lot of fun to grow.  The color is worth the wait.  Flavor is sweet and fruity, and it has orange, yellow and red stripes.

T99.  Garden Peach – 76 days.  This smaller salad tomato is fuzzy and peach colored, hence the name.  Flavor is mild and fruity. Fun to grow.

T100.  Bali – 75 days.  This tomato is almost a cherry type, except it is deeply lobed, many on the sprawling plant and the flavor is to die for.  It is just amazing.  Like a mini-Bear Claw.
