Tomato - Open Pollinator
Open-pollinated tomatoes are tomato varieties derived from natural pollinated by insects, wind, or other natural means. These stand in contrast to hybrid tomatoes, which are the result of controlled crosses between two different parent plants. Open-pollinated tomatoes are desirable for several reasons, and we're proud to offer a variety of open-pollinated tomato seeds to our home gardeners. First, they tend to be more genetically diverse than hybrids, which can make them more adaptable to different growing conditions and less susceptible to diseases. In addition, open-pollinated tomato varieties often have unique flavors, colors, and shapes that can add variety and interest to your garden and your table. By growing open-pollinated tomatoes, you can enjoy the delicious taste of homegrown tomatoes while also supporting a more sustainable and diverse food system.
