The Surfinia® Revolution!

"Plant them and stand back!" ­— Allan M. Armitage. The first spreading Petunia ever grown was Surfinia®, and it remains the best of the cutting-grown varieties, with a near monopoly on the Petunia market in Europe! Bred from wild Petunias crossed with cultivated seed varieties, the Surfinia® Petunias are sold only as plants — never as seed — to ensure the strongest, most vigorous and free-flowering growth over a long season. These plants spread up to 8 feet within a single season, creating a pillar of living color. And they’re great for warm climates where many varieties struggle, offering a late-season surge of blooms that no other Petunia can match! The Unique Advantages of Surfinia® Petunias • Big, easy-to-grow plants that take off from the very first day you transplant them • Quick-growing and so vigorous they can spread 8 feet in a single season • Super-floriferous, thanks to the shorter space between buds on every branch • Longer-blooming, with the heaviest show in late season, when many other Petunias wind down • Far more heat tolerant than other Petunias, flowering right through the hottest summer weather • Super-colorful, with rich, intense shades hard to find elsewhere Where to Use Surfinias® in Your Landscape These giant trailing plants create garden color on a grand scale, so use them to transform the look of your landscape and to solve garden dilemmas! • Living drapery for a balcony or second-story deck • Lush groundcover for a sunny bed or border • Cascading color for terraced gardens

Its dense, rounded, semi-dwarf form is only 3 to 4 feet wide; its silvery leaves remain ever­green all winter; and its pink spring flowers are a refreshing change from the usual white. Self-pollinating and more tolerant than most to high pH! It’s a southern highbush type with a low chill requirement (only 150 hours), which means it’s great for the South — yet hardy all the way to Chicago! Best in slightly acid, rich soil. In colder zones, container plants should be sunk in the ground or protected during winter months. 3½-inch pot. Z 5-9.

Egyptian Walking Onion

All parts of this remarkable plant are edible, and it’s such fun to grow! The long, thick green stalks are terrific scallions, and the little cluster of brownish bulbils at the top of the plant are miniature onions — tender, savory, and mild. The larger underground bulb may also be used as an onion or replanted for next year’s crop. Perennial across the U.S. (zones 3-10), this onion “walks” when its tall stalks bend over beneath the weight of the brown bulbils, topple to the ground, and root there! 3-inch pot. Cannot ship to OR.

Summer Garden! Heirloom Favorites 80060-X1P — Tomato Brandywine

Indeterminate. The absolute favorite heirloom tomato among connoisseurs, Brandywine delights with big fruit of purplishred, deeply lobed and not at all “uniform.” But the best part is the flavor – meaty, juicy, with real “tomato tang.” It sets good yields of large 12-ounce fruit, no two just alike. Attention-getting, distinctive, and unforgettable!

87597-X1P — Tomato Cherokee Purple

Indeterminate. Everyone’s favorite heirloom, it’s yummy and easy to grow! Rumored to have originated with the Cherokee nation in Tennessee more than 120 years ago, this scrumptious tomato is beloved not only for its history and unusual deep purple color but for its stunning flavor. Huge, ridged 16-oz. fruit offers a rich tomato tang on vigorous 8-foot plants that bear heavily all season.

87599-X1P — Tomato Kellogg’s Breakfast

Indeterminate. Giant orange beefsteak! Giant sunny orange globes weighing 1 to 2 pounds appear on this vigorous Certified Organic heirloom. Their sweet, tangy flavor is legendary, and a single slice is more than enough for a sandwich!

80037-X1P — Pepper Corno di Toro

This delicious old-time Italian sweet frying pepper is named “bull’s horn” for its distinctive shape. Huge 8-inch fruits mature to dark red.

80059-X1P — Tomato Big Rainbow

This heirloom is a pleasure to watch grow, as it turns from a green-shouldered, yellow-centered, red-bottomed young fruit to a mature gold-and-red sunset of color. Absolutely enormous, it reaches 2 pounds before you know it, and has a flavor as over-the-top as its size and parade of colors. Resistant to foliar diseases, it keeps producing till frost.

Tomato Costoluto Genovese

80061-X1P — Tomato Costoluto Genovese

For intense tomato bite with a high acidic content, there is no better variety than this splendid Italian heirloom, probably dating from the early 1800s. The fruit is deeply lobed and irregular, but the flavor is unbelievable — no modern hybrid can equal it! A good choice for warm climates, it thrives in summer heat and then continues setting new fruit well into the cooler fall days.

87585-X1P — Pepper California Wonder

75 days. Dark, green, glossy fruits are smooth, 4-lobed and measure 4 inches tall by 4 inches wide; flesh is thick, sweet and mild. Plants grow 28 to 30 inches tall.

Tomatoes 87456-X1P —Chocolate Cherry

Even if this smoky purple cherry tomato weren’t so attractive, it would be popular for its exceptionally rich, tangy flavor. 1-inch fruits appear in clusters of 8 all over bushy plants 5 to 6 feet high and 3 feet wide. Harvest a few days before maturity and ripen indoors if needed.

80018-X1P — Sugary Hybrid

Chocolate Cherry

Super-high sugar content (9.5 on the Brix scale) and unique shape make this THE cherry Tomato to grow! Winner of a 2005 All-America Selection award, Sugary is exactly what its name suggests — a sweet, delectable bite-sized treat that even vegetable-phobic children love! These ½-ounce fruits are dark pink and arise in incredible numbers on plants so vigorous that you may want to prune them back in mid-season just to keep them within bounds! (Of course, if you’ve got the space, let them keep climbing — you won’t believe the yields!) Arising in big bunches like clusters of grapes, these tomatoes are pointed on both ends — an unusual and fun look!

87607-X1P — Sunsugar Hybrid

Don’t let its name fool you — this tomato is packed with sugars, yes, but it’s also got that authentic tomato “tang” that so many other cherry types lack. Early to mature and very heavy-yielding, it offers armloads of ½-ounce golden fruits with thin skins that resist cracking. Absolutely delicious!

87454-X1P — Ildi Hybrid

Ildi Sugary–AAS Winner!

The highest-yielding grape tomato in our trials is also the most attractive and delicious! Delectable new Ildi is a sweet grape with a tart underbite — really satisfying in salads or straight from the vine! These fruits mature quickly and are borne in huge clusters of up to 75! And as if all this weren’t enough, they have great staying power on the vine or after picking, lasting for weeks without losing one bit of freshness! Grape-shaped 1-inch yellow tomatoes held in bunches of up to 75 on 5- to 6-foot vines.

Tomatoberry Garden 87612-X1P—Tomatoberry Garden Hybrid

The Tomato that Thinks it’s a Strawberry! The newest sensation in cherry tomatoes is this super-sweet, extrajuicy strawberry-sized wonder! Just about an inch high and wide, it boasts a firm texture all the way from its broad shoulders to its tapering point. The fruit is irresistibly delicious, and really does resemble a strawberry in shape and color. What fun!

Park's Whopper CR Improved Park's Beefy Boy

41422-X1P—Park’s Whopper CR Improved Hybrid

The Home Gardener’s Absolute Favorite Tomato! Indeterminate. The original Whopper was an American classic, and its successor is simply a dream: greater disease resistance, higher yields, a longer season, and better taste! These big, juicy, crack-resistant tomatoes, 4 inches or more across, and ripen evenly. Then they keep right on coming in huge quantities until frost — ­ no smaller, greener endof-season fruits here! Resistant to Verticillium Wilt, Root Knot Nematodes, Tobacco Mosaic Virus, and 2 strains of Fusarium Wilt. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart.

12 to 16 ounces Each!

41266-X1P—Park’s Beefy Boy Hybrid

Everything about Beefy Boy is larger-than-life, from its succulent flavor to its generous yields! Bred specifically for maximum flavor, the taste is sweet yet meaty, with more solids and less gel, despite its walloping 12- to 16-ounce size. This is the tomato you must grow this year for fresh tomato sandwiches and salads! And although you get a huge crop, less space between each fruit mean a more manageable, space-saving plant for the home garden! Superior disease protection, too — Beefy Boy is tolerant of Stemphylium and resistant to Verticillium Wilt, Fusarium Wilt races 1 and 2, and Tobacco Mosaic Virus. On top of all that, the globe-shaped tomatoes are gorgeous, with deep red skin and smooth shoulders (thanks to uniform ripening).

Any Tomato above in six-packs of one variety 1 six-pack for $9.95 2 six-packs (mix ‘n’ match) for $19.00
