2014 Tomato Varieties

I thought I would write a post about all the tomato varieties I am going to be growing this year. Tomatoes have become my obsession and I now have over 300 varieties of tomato seeds! I am not able to grow all 300 varieties in my gardening space, so I narrowed it down to around 80 varieties. Some of the varieties I will be growing this year are not available from any seed companies. I belong to a Tomato Forum and I have received a lot of varieties that have been created by some of the members. I can't wait to try my tomatoes this year, almost all the varieties I am growing are new to me. I plan on doing a lot of seed saving, so I will have a lot to offer other gardeners for next year.  I will list the varieties by type.

  1. I'm looking forward to "Granny's Heart" ! I hope she grows strong, healthy and puts forth abundant fruits for you..:-)

    1. Thanks Granny! I am excited too about trying this tomato, I have read good reviews about it. If you would like I can send you some seeds.

    2. That's so sweet of you to offer, but it's too late for me to get them started. I'll just sit back and wait for your harvest!

    3. There are some on your list that I have heard great things about but am unable to find seeds. Purple Turtle and Not purple Strawberry and Red barn are three that I have been looking for. I came across this blog while looking for them. Can you tell me where to get the seeds.

  2. Wow, that's some list! I' going to have to stop over your garden this summer and see all these wonderful tomatoes! BTW, thanks for the plant!

    1. You are quite welcome, I hope it brought a smile to your face. You are welcome over my garden any time. I will have extra plants if you would like to try any. I will hopefully have many varieties for the Tomato Tasting I am hosting for the Community Garden members.

  3. Amazingly, after all that trading/sharing we did that there are only 12 of these listed here that made it into my garden. Cheers to the scrumptious tomatoes coming out of our home gardens this year. Excited to hear how your tasting goes with lots of pics. :)

  4. Holy cow! I can barely keep track of my 4 varieties of potatoes, let alone my 10 varieties of tomatoes. How will you ever keep track of these! Cudos to you!

    1. Jody I make charts, labels and it helps that I am very anal lol. I am obsessed with tomatoes and I have trouble picking and choosing, so I plant everything.
