2020 Tomato List

Tomato seed starting in spring

Greetings, friends! I’ve been deep in garden-planning mode and thought I’d poke my head up from the mess of seed packets surrounding me to share my 2020 tomato list. I grew about 30 different varieties last year and canned some delicious tomato sauce, and I’m prepared to grow even more this year in an effort to can enough sauce to last us all winter. We use it as both a pasta sauce and pizza sauce, so I have my work cut out for me!

The bulk of my garden will be tomatoes this year, which is just fine since the dahlias are getting their own plot in 2020. In total I plan on growing about 40 varieties this year, some new and some old. I sow multiples of each variety, ensuring I’ll have extra plants to give to family members and friends, or backups in the event some seeds don’t germinate or a hungry slug devours a few seedlings.

So without further ado, here is my 2020 tomato variety list:

  • Millionaire
  • Mortgage Lifter
  • Kellogg’s Breakfast
  • Dr. Wyche’s Yellow
  • Vintage Wine
  • Sunrise Sauce
  • Behemoth King
  • Amish Paste

  • Mushroom Basket
  • Alice’s Dream
  • Northern Lights
  • Marzipan Gold
  • Texwine
  • Beauty Lottringa
  • Slankard’s
