Considered to be one of the best tasting purple tomatoes available. Beautiful fruits are produced in abundance on stocky plants which show good heat and disease resistance. Once you try it, it will find a place in your garden for it every year.


HISTORY: A result of a natural cross of Brandywine, Sudduth's X Unknown  in the garden of Ricky “B” of Murphreesboro, Tennessee, who sent F2 seeds to several Tomatoville members in 2006. The cross produced regular leaf plants in the F1 generation and both potato and regular leaf plants in the F2 generation. Selection continued in 2007-2009 with potato leaf lines as it had an excellent taste. Bill Jeffers of Evansville, Indiana selected for mahogany fruit on a potato leaf vine, and offered a stabilized version (F5) in the Seed Savers 2010 Yearbook. Original seed source was Bill Jeffers.  (PHOTO CREDIT: Bill Jeffers)

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call - his name is James Johns (310-756-9487) and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!
