List of heirloom tomato cultivars


List of heirloom tomato cultivars

This a list of heirloom tomato cultivars. Not all the cultivars below are "true heirlooms", but all are certainly prized for their taste and color characteristics. Their disease resistance may be dubious at best.

Heirloom tomatoes are usually indeterminate, which means they will produce fruit all season long, and grow in a vine-like pattern. Some of the cultivars below are determinate, which means they tend to produce their fruit for a shorter period, and have a more bush-like growth pattern.
