Heirloom Tomatoes

Tasty tomatoes that live up to the hype

1 Taste

Heirlooms vary in size, shape, color and taste. They have meaty textures, thin skins and tons of flavor.

2 Types

Varieties include Cherokee Purple, Brandywine and Sunset’s Red Horizon. Yellow heirloom tomatoes tend to be mild and red heirlooms are more acidic.

3 Space

To decrease disease, heirlooms need wide spacing in both directions to improve airflow.

4 Garden

Heirloom tomatoes grow well in large containers, making them perfect to grow on a sunny deck. In fact, growing them in containers can reduce instances of disease.


The term heirloom applies to tomato varieties that were grown before World War II.
