Carmello
Started from Organic Seeds
The All time Favorite at WeeBee Farms
And Our Go-To
Salsa making tomato
EXCELLENT, sweet flavor! Has produced huge amounts every year at WeeBee Farms under all kinds of conditions. Medium to large tomatoes (3-4") that are fabulous in salads and also our favorite for salsa-making in spite of being quite juicy.
An old-time French market tomato.
Disease-resistant, crack- resistant and resistant to blossom-end rot. Open Pollinated Organic Seeds.     75 days,  Indeterminate
 Latah (Very Early!)
    Started from Organic Seed
Favorite Early Tomato at WeeBee Farms
Developed at Latah County at the University of Idaho . Very early bright red tomato that average about 2 inches across. The flavor is very good and better than many of the super early varieties, although it doesn't produce heavily. Indeterminate, regular leaf foliage. Light, airy foliage, small plant.
50 Days to maturity. Good for Containers



Gardener's Delight Cherry
                   Started from Organic Seeds
Also known as Sugar Lump, these red cherries range from 3/4 to 1-1/2 inch across and are loaded with sugary sweet flavor. Has won taste tests for best-tasting cherry tomatoes (and "most-nibbled" at WeeBee Farms). Grow in a container or in the ground. 6 ft tall vines, open pollinated
65 days, indeterminate


New Zealand Gold (Earl of Edgecombe)
                     Started from Organic Seeds
  A New Zealand heirloom that we grow every year at WeeBee Farms. The smooth, 3-inch, round, uniformly ripening fruits are beautiful orange globes, typically borne in clusters of two or more. Sweet, juicy and exceptionally flavorful.
Also called Earl of Edgecombe. 73 days, Indeterminate.
Matt's Wild
 Started from Organic Seeds
Deep red cherries are smaller than average with an exceptional flavor many consider the best. Matt’s keeps producing copious quantities when every other tomato in the field is down for the count with early blight. Pick frequently as skin is thin and cracks easily. Shows moderate field tolerance to Late Blight. Up to 1/4 oz fruit. Indeterminate, tall plants,  Disease Resistance: Early Blight
55 days, Indeterminate. Plants grow very wide reaching almost 5 feet in each direction. We sometimes prune them back. The most nutritious tomato!




Paul Robeson
Started from organic seeds
Days: 74
Size: Indeterminate (Big) plants, 3-4” tomatoes
We tried this at WeeBee Farms in 2015 and have added it to our "must-grow" list! The taste is incredible, as sweet as Carmello, but with a rich almost "smoky" overtone. Also the story behind Paul Robeson (the man) is compelling. 
 
A Russian heirloom. This "purple-black" beefsteak tomato is slightly flattened, round, and grows to 4-inches. It's deep, rich colors stand it apart from others, dusky, dark-red, with dark-green shoulders and red flesh in its center. Very flavorful fruits with luscious, earthy, exotic flavors and good acid/sweet balance. Very similar to Black Krim, but just a tad better. Won "Best of Show" at Carmel TomatoFest in California.


Black Plum
Started from organic seeds
Days: 82
Size: Indeterminate,
2”long tomatoes
These very good flavor and although technically a "paste" type they are juicy and flavorful- we use them for salads and sandwiches.



"Goldie Girl"
 Started from Organic Seeds
Days: 74
Plant type: Indeterminate
We finally found an organic version of "Sungold" after years of trials at WeeBee Farms! Goldie Girl has that classic sungold flavor, size and productivity. An Italian heirloom. Tall indeterminate plants that yield huge amounts of 3/4 inch golden cherry tomatoes that are bursting with sweet flavor.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
"Thanksgiving" Tomato
 
Days: 78
Plant type: Indeterminate
Our most unusual offering. These ripen from the inside out, and literally store until Thanksgiving, with very good flavor even from the green ones stored til later. A WeeBee Farms favorite for 3 years that we've decided to finally sell. It will be soft, but look pale orange/ greenish on the outside when it's ready to pick. 
 
 
When you slice it open it will be red/pink on the inside, juicy with lots of flavor. Plant them last, and pick them last.
These are hard to explain it but once you try it you'll see what we mean and why we always grow a couple of these plants. High yielding indeterminate plants.

     Planting Tomatoes from WeeBee Farms

We recommend planting around memorial day to June 1st. We have gotten fabulous tomatoes almost every year this way. If you plant earlier, be prepared to protect them in case of frost. Also prepare to protect them during the first frosts in September.
Make sure your tomatoes are hardened off and ready for full sun and wind.  The ones we sell are always hardened off and ready to plant.

Tomato plants require full sun to produce. Many tomato plants will reach around 3-4 ft high and about 3 feet wide. For pots choose smaller varieties and 5 gallon pots minimum size.

Plant tomatoes in good soil, preferably with good organic compost mixed in. Fox Farms brand is a good potting mix with compost to amend your soil with. Dig a very deep planting hole and plant the tomato as deep as possible with the bottom leaves trimmed off.

Water the planting hole deeply before and after planting. Tomatoes should be watered regularly thereafter. Irregular watering promotes blossom-end rot. We fertilize our tomatoes at planting time with organic compost and not after that. Too much fertilizer can cause lots of leaf growth and not enough tomato production. Use a sturdy metal cage supported with a sturdy post for each plant. Full size plants can topple over if not supported correctly.
