A selection of heirloom vegetables all in one seed slab. Beefsteak tomatoes, bullet chilli peppers, cherry tomatoes, chard and eggplant.
Red Beefsteak tomatoes
Light: Full sun Fruit size: 14 to 24 oz Matures: 90 days Plant spacing: 36 inches apart Plant size: 6 to 8 feet Plant type: Indeterminate Beefsteaks are always grown for their flavor and size for slicing and summer sandwiches. This variety produces large, meaty red fruit over a long season on indeterminate plants. Because it matures late compared to many other tomatoes, it will provide a fresh harvest in the latter part of the season. This is an old favorite beloved by gardeners in the Northeast and grown throughout the country. Vigorous vines grow best in tall cages.
Matt'said wild cherry tomatoes
The wild tomato with great flavor.
These small, 5 gm., cherry tomatoes are deep red, have a tender, smooth texture, and sweet, full flavor. High sugar content. Though the flavor is superior, it doesn't yield as well as modern varieties, and the fruits are soft. Fantastic in salsa and for fresh eating. Some resistance to early blight and late blight. Indeterminate.
Swiss Chard - 50 days. Pale green leaves, almost golden in color, and thick white midribs give this chard a different look. Makes exquisite baby greens at 25 days. A great new addition to the ever-expanding color range of this old-fashioned veggie. Lovely!
The Bullet yello Chili plant has a magnificent outlook that explains the quality of chilies they produce. It’s a strong vigorous plant high adaptable to many growing areas producing bullet-like hot fruits. This plant grows to fair heights and bears a lot of branches to increase fruit or chilly pods bearing. It is strong, vigorous and high adaptable to a variety of climate conditions.
Apple-green Eggplant - Highly recommended variety. Developed in 1964 at the University of New Hampshire. This mild flavored brinjal is non-acidic, does not need peeling, and is a very good producer even in a cooler environment.
