    Very true – unlike the extensively modified and cross-bred 'maters these beauties will breed true. Worth the time!!!

    Although the seeds do tend to be a bit more expensive, you only have to buy them once, then you can save your own and will never have to buy them again. I grow mostly heirlooms! Love them … check out my channel for more videos of heirlooms.

    If you have any space – even just a sunny window or two – you can grow these tomatoes. The seeds are a little more expensive than regular but you don't need many, and they grow very well in containers. I've used 5 gallon plastic tubs scrounged from local ice cream parlors and delis – the buckets are used for stuff like ice cream mix, coleslaw etc, and are food grade so they won't leach nasty chemicals into your food. More food can be grown this way than you might think!

    I was trying to watch a 24-70mm three way lens review and this video came up before as an ad-stream ad or whatever. I watched it all, gotta say, good content. Subscribed.

    We have grown a lot of yellow tomatoes this year and they are delicious but maybe I need to try some of these other varieties next year!
