You are here: Home > Top 20 Varieties for Market
These are the tomato varieties that have been a staple in my tomato growing for produce markets, from larger markets (like Whole Foods Market) to local farmers markets. They are proven winners by produce managers because of their customer appeal, better shelf-life and higher sales. I included a range of colors and shapes with little duplication to enable easier identification in the market mix. This is an attention getting, seductive, colorful mix of heirloom tomatoes. Sizes are generally larger varieties with a scattering of medium to smaller varieties.

Black Krim
Black Krim
Our Price: $3.95

(aka Black Crimson and Black Crim) Originally from the Isle of Krim on the Black Sea in the former Soviet Union. This rare, and outstanding tomato yields 3-4" slightly flattened dark-red (mahogany-colored) slightly maroon, beefsteak tomatoes with deep green shoulders. Green gel around seeds. Fantastic, intense, slightly salty taste (which is great for those not wanting to add salt to their tomatoes).

Black Krim is one of my best black tomatoes. Also suitable for container/patio garden. Perfect choice for slicing, salads and cooking.
