DESCRIPTION: We have had requests for this from folks with small gardens. A mix of six different large tomato varieties, with the seed dyed with food coloring so that you know which is which and can plant only one of each kind if you wish. The varieties vary according to what we have on hand. Currently it is Caro Rich, Graham's Good Keeper, Big Rainbow, Evergreen, Brandywine and Marmande Super. Please realize the assortment is random and may or may not have all six varieties included in any one packet, because we mix the seeds first and then put a scoop in the packet.
