Best in the Mid-Atlantic: Amish Paste and Brandywine Tomatoes

Choose a mix of hybrids and heirlooms, such as Amish Paste and Brandywine tomatoes, in the Mid-Atlantic region.

| February/March 2010

The mid-Atlantic is the home territory of two top heirlooms — ‘Amish Paste’ and ‘Brandywine’ tomatoes — that are well-represented in these gardens. Adding a cherry tomato and an ‘Early Girl’ makes it easier to wait for later-maturing varieties. A balance of hybrids and heirlooms gives you earliness, disease resistance and great flavor. Further diversify by setting out some plants early and others later. That way, you will have vigorous young plants in late summer, when pest and disease pressure can become severe.
