Amish Paste - (approx. 25 seeds) The Amish Paste variety of Tomato, is an indeterminate plant that makes medium-sized fruits that I found great for making sauces, sliced in sandwiches and they are great cut up into salads. Very versatile for whatever your needs are.
Black Cherry - (approx. 25 seeds) The Black Cherry tomato has a very unique and eyecatching color. This is an indeterminate plant that makes clusters of 1 inch sized tomatoes. They are great for snacking and salads.
Cherokee Purple - (approx. 25 seeds) The Cherokee Purple is an indeterminate tomato plant that makes huge tomatoes. The fruit is more of a deep red than a purple but it has a really nice sweet and rich taste. Because it is so large it’s best used as a slicer tomato, but do whatever you want with it!
Everglades - (approx. 25 seeds) This is probably the easiest tomato you will ever grow. This plant is indeterminate and will grow wild if you let it. The fruit on this plant are small, dime-sized tomatoes with a sweet and almost citrusy taste to them.
Floradade - (approx. 25 seeds) This is a very classic looking tomato. This variety was introduced to us by the University of Florida in the 70’s. It’s known to produce a lot of tomatoes and withstand our Florida heat.
Green Zebra - (approx. 25 seeds) I think this is the most unique tomato on this list. This is a beautiful gold-colored tomato with green stripes that resemble...a zebra I guess...not like any zebra I have seen, but either way, this tomato is very visually appealing. The fruit size is roughly 2 inches and they fit in your palm nicely. Great for making pickled green tomatoes :)
Mortgage Lifter - (approx. 25 seeds) A classic variety of tomato that is well known around the US for a good reason. These tomatoes are massive, most weighing in at 1 pound but have been known to get up to 3lbs if the conditions are right.
Supersweet 100 hybrid - (approx. 10 seeds) Supersweet 100 has its name for a reason. These tomatoes are insanely sweet and somewhat difficult to come by. This is another cherry tomato plant that produces in large numbers and it will continue to grow and produce for longer than your average tomato.

Best Tomato Season Ever
I live in South Florida (Broward) and planted all of the varieties in the Florida Tomato Pack- one of each variety. They are a treat. Each type has a distinct flavor, and they are delicious. I was able to grow them all organic and pesticide-free! First time doing that. They are still producing lots of fruits. They don't look like they are going to stop anytime soon.
I can’t contain my plants! They’re growing like crazy, but I’m not complaining!
Very good. The tomatoes seeds all produced excellent plants. I did find transplanting in August was a little early for Central Florida, even with sun screen. Several of the plants were over 5 feet tall by mid September and could no longer be covered. Next year I will wait to plant until Early October, as I did a second planting and they are doing well.
