The Rusted Garden Tomato Seed Sale 2014-2015

The Rusted Vegetable Garden
2014-15 Tomato Seeds



All tomato seed packs come with approximately 35-50 seeds per pack. 
Plenty of seeds for several years, if stored properly.
I take a pinch and quick count them. Nothing fancy.

All my tomato seeds were hand collected from The Rusted Garden,
unless marked clearly BULK SEEDS.  The chances of cross-pollination are very low as tomato flowers typically self-pollinate. However, I can't guarantee 100% you won't get a cross.
The chance of this happening is really, really, really low.

'Aussie' Heirloom Beefsteak 2 pounds?: Gary Pilarchik

This tomato is in my hand. It is huge. The quarter just covers the spot where the stem was attached to the tomato. This is well over 16 ounce. It is a giant. It is the biggest tomato I have every grown. This tomato grew naturally. Naturally in the sense, I didn't prune fruit from the tomato plant as a way for 1 tomato to get all the nutrients and grow large. There are 5 other 1 pound plus tomatoes on the tomato right now.

This is the first year I grew the 'Aussie' heirloom beefsteak tomato. It is outstanding and has now replaced the 'Delicious' variety as my favorite 16 to 32 ounce tomato. It matured a few days ago. It is definitely 85 days to maturity. It is sweet, huge, and no acidity. None. I included a quarter in the picture so you could have some perspective. A great tomato!

This is an outstanding cherry tomato that doesn't grow out of control but gives you 100's of tomatoes through the summer. A must for limited space gardens.

These are(below) Baxter's Bush Cherry Tomatoes picked from my garden 2012. I had 3 or 4 plants and couldn't keep up with harvesting them. Even though the are a bush type plants they still got to 4 feet and kept producing well into August. They are sweet and have little acid. They are great for salads or just snacking off the vine.

I experimented with cold tolerant tomatoes. In truth, I didn't notice much difference in time saving but this plant managed to grow in cool nights while other plants just sat there. It was my first plant to produce red tomatoes.

The tomato grows about 3-4 feet tall and 3 feet wide. It is a determinate variety. It didn't die out and set fruit all at once, like many determinates do. New growth continued and tomatoes continued through August. I'd also recommend this tomato for containers.

I use this tomato as the first tomato I start indoors and put out doors. It also had good disease resistance.

Russian Orange Oxheart Tomatoe Seeds 2012: Gary Pilarchik
I grew this tomato for the first time last year and will grow it forever. It is beautiful to look and the color stripping goes through the fruit. It is meaty and makes a great addition to salads and salsas. It adds to any plate's appearance. The fruit is sweet. It is a great tomato to cut into pieces and salt to your pleasure. It looks great in the garden too. Check out the size of the fruits. They average 10-16 ounces but I got some that broke 20 ounces. It is very prolific. I had 30 or so fruits on it a time.

The fruits are red and very sweet. The best currant, I've tasted!



These are currant type tomatoes from the Galapagos Islands. I have grown them now for 4 or 5 years and they will produce 500 to 1000 currant tomatoes per plant. They are super sweet and grow wild in the Galapagos Islands.

You will get 100+ tomato seeds. I saved them all from my plants this year. I test germinated them with about a 65% germination rate. They are much slower to sprout than standard tomato seeds.

I recommend planting 3 seeds to a cell or cup and thinning to the strongest plant. A household of 4 only needs one plant to be supplied with sweet currant tomatoes all season long.


Silver Fir Tree: A Great Container Tomato
(Packed for 2013)

I don't have a picture yet but will taking pictures and making a video this year.

This is a great container tomato that matures in 55 days. It grows about 3 feet and sets a good amount of 4 ounce very red tomatoes that measure about 2-2 1/2 inches in diameter.

The leaves have silvery color to them and are much finer then your standard tomatoes.  The leaves are more wispy and fern like. It looks great and tastes great. Best of all it makes a great container tomato!
