Brie's Top Heirloom Tomatoes

Every season I grow more than 100 heirloom cultivars of Tomatoes to test their ability to withstand the heat and humidity of central NC.  Over the past decade I have trialed hundreds, and have come up with my top list which includes varieties of the three main types: Cherry, Slicers and Paste.  Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds is my trusty seed source each season and their endless varieties will keep you intrigued for years to come! Try them out and enjoy the ultimate taste of summer!
