Spring Plant Sale 2021

MARC is partnering with  our fellow non-profit, the American Landscape Institute – A Work/Study program for Horticulture and Landscape College students and with Hereford High School Ag. Program to sell plants we have raised.  MARC specialized in Heirloom Tomatoes and ALI has raised a number of different vegetables including the prettiest Okra I have ever seen!  Prices are right.

Heirloom Tomatoes

Red Brandywine”:  One of the nation’s favorite Heirloom tomato varieties. The vines are vigorous, the fruits are large (sometimes> 1lb) meaty and low acid with a classic flavor.  They are somewhat like a “Beefsteak”.  Large globular or ovate fruit may crack under some weather conditions.  We have 100 to sell.

Blush Tiger”:  These are elongated 2” long, tomatoes that grow like many cherry tomatoes.  They are popular because they are high yielding, sweet, continue to ripen after being picked and are said to have a “tropical flavor”.   They are crack resistant. We have 60 to sell.

Rainbow”:  is a Beefsteak like tomato with a variegated red and yellow flesh.  The fruits may be large and can weigh two pounds. The texture is creamy, and the flavor is a bit tart but a classic “tomato taste”.   We have 35 to sell.

Granny”:  The story is that a returning GI gave “Granny” Cantrell some tomato seeds he picked up in Germany in 1945.   She grew them for years in KY and selected for large and tasty fruit.  These are said to have a traditional “tomato taste” and are usually red although some are pinkish. We have 30 to sell.

Yellow Brandywine”:  May grow to 2 lbs.  Yellow fruit has more character than some yellow tomatoes with a refreshing tart flavor that some describe as intense with a creamy texture.  We have 20 to sell.

Blue Beauty”:  This beefsteak like tomato has an unusual blue color on top that turns maroon as they ripen.  These are very resistant to cracking and sunburn.  A nice flavorful tomato.  Have 6 to sell.
