Product description

Why are heirloom tomatoes expensive?
Heirloom tomatoes are expensive because they are not mass-produced. With fewer available (than hybrids), their price typically stays high. Heirlooms are not disease resistant, their vines produce less per acre than hybrid varieties, and they do not travel well.

Heirloom tomatoes are special because they taste better than hybrid tomato varieties. Heirloom tomatoes also “breed true”, meaning that the seeds can be saved to grow more of the same tomatoes year after year.
