Our main goal is preservation of open-pollinated vegetables and collection of historical information about varieties. We offer seeds for heritage varieties of tomatoes and some other vegetables all year around. Although we are not certified organic, we do grow all our vegetables organically. The proceeds from selling seeds help tremendously to cover some garden expenses and TOMATObase website maintenance and administration. Thank you so much for your support!
<br /> As our primary goal is a seed preservation, we schedule our growouts based on the age of seeds in our seed collection. Therefore some of the sold-out varieties may not be available for several years until they are re-grown again for fresh seed stock.
<br />Every year we grow about 200 tomato varieties, 10 lettuce varieties, 20-30 pepper varieties, 8 melon varieties, and 6 winter squash varieties for fresh seeds. The seeds are offered in Tatiana's TOMATObase seed catalog until they are sold out or fail germination tests. ey are sold out or fail germination tests.
