Product Details

You'll be carrying on a long tradition when you grow this set of six Heirloom Tomatoes, including cherry, slicing, and large-fruited varieties. Heirloom Tomatoes are varieties whose seeds have been treasured and passed down from one generation of gardeners to the next for 50 years or more. Many of these Tomatoes have evocative names, which add to their charm and make us want to know more. Some have stories behind their origin that are as rich as the flavor of the fruits themselves. Our sampler provides a range of colors, shapes, and sizes, with maturity dates of 60–90 days from transplant. Each collection contains 6 labeled plants, our choice.

All of our Tomatoes are grown from non-GMO seed. The stocky seedlings are grown and shipped in 1 pint pots, so the plants you receive have strong, well-developed root systems.

Normally we ship plants once they are ready on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone through June. Due to increased demand and staffing shortages, we expect to have to ship plants later than we normally would regardless of your zone.

Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: Georgia, Texas, Maryland, Nevada, Montana, North Carolina, New Jersey.


The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

I bought these heirloom tomatoes for my son-in-law, an avid gardener in his spare time when he's not practicing medicine.

They have grown from small plants into huge tree like structures that must be 6-8 feet tall.
The tomatoes are enormous and abundant.

He experimented with planting methods.
The ones planted with a tall trellis to climb on have done the best.

The fruits are still green on Labor Day, but my son-in-law has been picking the large fruits while they are green and putting them in a brown paper bag with a banana to help ripen them indoors.
Bananas give off ethylene oxide which assists in ripening.

I was hoping to attach a picture of these amazing plants.

We are both extremely impressed.

This would probably be a great collection, had it arrived a month earlier. We received ours (in Chicago) in late May and planted them immediately. Cared for them as instructed. We saw our first tomatoes in early September (small and green, of course). Now that it's late september the first frost is right around the corner and we almost certainly won't get to harvest any of the tomatoes (only a couple are bigger than a grape, all are very very green). A total waste of money, time, and effort.
My friend in Boston ordered the same collection and got hers in April. She's had gorgeous tomatoes since August. I know the growing zones are what is at play here, but I never imagined I wouldn't get a single tomato off of six plants. I should have just bought plants at the nursery around here, planted them in March indoors, moved them outside in April, and actually enjoyed them.

A super introduction to heirlooms

So very happily surprised by varieties like Orange Strawberry Oxheart (a favorite in our house now) and Green Zebra. Gold Medal was a beautiful slicing tomato, just gorgeous. The only disappointment was Reisentraube, however I had some difficulty with that plant. Likely due to the way I planted it. But the collection is one I quickly suggest to anyone looking for a sampler. Also, superlative customer service. One plant arrived with a broken stem. It was replaced promptly and with no hassle. Thank you White Flower Farm.

Care of Plants On Arrival - 

Your plants have just spent up to 3 days without light or water and may have yellow leaves or show evidence of wilting. Through years of shipping experience, we have found that more than 98% of these plants will survive and thrive if you follow the simple care instructions below.

1. Please take your plants out of the shipping box as soon after their arrival as possible, taking care not to damage any stems or leaves as you free the plants from the cardboard packaging.

2. If the soil is dry, water gently but thoroughly from above or set the pot in a saucer of water for an hour or so -- just long enough for the soil in the pot to become thoroughly moist, but not soggy.

3. Place your plants in bright but indirect light indoors or, if temperatures permit, outdoors in the shade, sheltered from the wind. Don't put your plants in full sun right away because their leaves are tender after the trip and could be burned (sunscalded) or fall off if exposed to too much sun too soon. Allow your plants to adjust gradually over the next few days to increasing amounts of sunlight.

4. We've tried to time the shipping of our young plants so that they arrive at or near the frost-free date in your climate zone. If, however, the weather is still raw and a frost seems likely, transplant your plants into larger pots, taking them outside during the day when the weather is mild and bringing them in whenever frost or blustery cold weather threatens. Young plants are more tender than mature plants, and even if the last spring frost is already past, near-freezing temperatures and cold spring winds are capable of killing your new plants. Expose your young plants to outdoor conditions gradually, giving them a chance to harden off before they're planted out. When the weather does settle and both days and nights become reliably mild (night-time temperatures should remain above 50°F), then it's time for planting out.

Planting out: When the weather is warm and settled, choose a planting location in full sun with rich, fertile soil and good drainage. To reduce soil-borne disease problems, plant tomatoes, eggplants, and peppers where you haven't grown them or potatoes in the past 3 years. Dig a hole that will generously accommodate the plant's root ball, and mix compost or aged manure and a handful of low-nitrogen, organic fertilizer into the planting hole. If the weather is hot and sunny, plant in the cool of morning or wait until late afternoon to minimize stress.

To remove a plant from its pot, flip the pot over, tap on its bottom, and slip the plant out. Do not pull the plant out by its stem. Loosen the root ball and tease the roots apart if they are matted or tangled. Set the cucumbers, eggplants, peppers, and squash into their holes so that the tops of the root balls are level with or just slightly below the surrounding soil. For the tomatoes, cut off all but the top 2-3 branches, lay the stem and roots at an angle in a trench about 4-5in deep, then cover the stem with soil, leaving the branches and leaves above ground. Tomato plants will send out roots along the buried stem, accelerating their growth.

Push soil back into each planting hole and firm the soil around each plant to eliminate air pockets. Water thoroughly to further settle the soil. Keep the soil around the plants moist but not soggy and provide shade (with row cover, cardboard, or lath) for the first few days. Transplant shock is not uncommon, but within a week or less the plants' roots will regain their ability to provide moisture to the foliage. Remove shading once plants perk up.

Continuing care: If rain is scarce, water your vegetable plants deeply and regularly (weekly, or more often in hot, dry weather).

Once the fruits of peppers and tomatoes start to ripen, water only if plants start to wilt; withholding water at this stage will result in better-flavored fruit. No additional fertilizer is needed, but a mulch of compost or aged manure won't hurt.

Plants can also be foliar fed throughout the season with a kelp- and/or fish-based product, but avoid high-nitrogen fertilizers, which promote lush growth at the expense of fruit production. Provide cages or supports for the tomato plants. Stake pepper plants so heavy yields don't break their branches.
