Gardening 2011 Some Options for Planting Vegetables
BlondKoepfchen, "little blonde gird" in German, is an East German heirloom yellow cherry tomato. From the Gatersleben Seed Bank. 1" fruits in clusters with a sweet taste.
Eva Purple is a mid sized hierloom, 4-5 oz, brought from Germany in the late 1800's to Elmwood Park NJ. Cherry red flesh. Great flavor.
A very popular small cherry tomato - 1/2 - 3/4 " fruits. Great flavor, easy to grow in a patio pot. I have raised these in my Bloomington and Crystal gardens with great success.
A large blocky bell sweet pepper from Italy. Green ripens slowly into a golden yellow. Thick crisp flesh with sweet spicy flavor.
