Early ripening heirloom tomatoes were Michael Pollan, Turkish Striped Monastery and Indigo Rose.  Nine of my 13 varieties were from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, the sponsor of the National Heirloom Expo. I can’t say enough wonderful accolades about this company, so please check them out.

The Indigo Rose seeds were from Box Garden Organics. I don’t see this variety of seed offered today, but, the tomatoes were wonderful, so please inquire or select one of their many other seed varieties.The most prolific, earliest ripening, and last on the vine were Red Cherry Tomatoes from Seeds of Change.
