Tomatoes

Fort Collins Nursery has over 40 tomato varieties that were diligently grown for you by our talented production team right here at Fort Collins Nursery.  Each plant was started with high-quality, organic seeds and re-potted into a 1 gallon container.  By the time our tomato plants are ready to sell, they are more mature than most store bought starts, so they’ll require less time between planting and producing tomatoes.  While the value is great, your favorite thing about our tomatoes will be how good they taste!  Look for the Fort Collins Nursery labeled containers to spot one of our own!

Here are some unique and delicious varieties to try:

Striped German

A new addition to Fort Collins Nursery this year is the Striped German tomato. The Striped German is a high yielding plant that produces large 12-16 oz. fruit.  The fruits have a smooth texture with yellow and red marbling that looks beautiful sliced.  Indeterminate. 78 days to maturity.

 

 

 

 

Polbig

Polbig is another variety we are growing at Fort Collins Nursery for the first time this year.  It is a high producing plant that yields a deep-red, 6-8 oz. fruit which uniformly matures on the vine.  This meaty, very good tasting tomato is perfect for salads, slicing, and sandwiches.  Polbig tomatoes tolerate cooler temperatures and have high resistance to fusarium wilt, tobacco mosaic virus, and verticillium wilt. Determinate. 60 days to maturity.

 

 

 

Pruden’s Purple

Early Brandywine type.

Large to very large (many over 1 lb.) fruits are flattened and smooth (except for shoulder ribbing on some), and resist cracking. Vivid dark pink skin with crimson flesh. Medium tall, potato-leaf plants. Indeterminate. 67 Days to Maturity.

 

 

 

 

Tomato ‘Fiaschetto di Manduria’

Fiaschetto is a regional treasure of Puglia in Southeast Italy. These small 2-3 oz plum shaped tomatoes hang like grapes from the bushy plants in prolific quantities.  In Puglia it is preferred even over the more famous San Marzano for its freshness and fruitiness. The perfect size for halving and dehydrating for enjoying in the winter months on your pastas and pizzas. Extremely early harvest for a paste type and conveniently concentrated for processing purposes. Determinate. 65-70 Days to Maturity.
