WOW!

"This year was going to be my last effort to grow tomatoes in the high desert, even though our extension agent says we have the ""perfect climate for heirlooms."" We also have lots of problems--last year most of our entire high valley lost their crop to Curly Top Virus. I decided to give these grafted tomatoes a shot, and I am so happy I did. My beautiful big pink tomatoes are the envy of all my gardening friends, and I am enjoying the flavor of the home-grown tomatoes I have loved all my life. The plants have withstood everything Mother Nature has thrown at them, thrived, and are producing beautifully. I am sure I have a good many new customers for you with this one."
