Spring is nearly here, and gardeners everywhere are dreaming of amazing Tomatoes...not the hopeless cardboard imposters found in most grocery stores, but fabulous, full-flavored, homegrown Heirlooms with all their quirky names, odd shapes, rainbow of colors, and incredible range of sweet, fruity, spicy, smoky flavors.

This year, Two Dog Organic Nursery is once again proud to offer 48 wonderful varieties—big ones, little ones, black ones, pink, red, orange, white and bi-colored ones! After growing out most of the "New" varieties from last year, studying the results of the famous Tasting competitions, doing tons of new research, and listening to your feedback, we've developed an exciting line-up for 2017 which includes 21 NEW varieties! Of the 48, just two — the wildly popular Sungold and the super-sweet Sugar Snack — are hybrid varieties, and all the rest are Heirloom or Open-Pollinated. We're also excited to include 5 varieties from the fascinating Dwarf Tomato Project whose goal is to develop small plants with big production of full-size fruits! And we're also happy to offer, for the first very time, Ground Cherries! Don't forget, all our varieties are Certified Organic!

We continue our Organic Certification through CCOF making us still the only Certified Organic retail nursery in Los Angeles County. And just in case you're not aware, being "Certified Organic" legally precludes us from using any GMO or treated seeds (not that we ever would!!)

At Two Dog Nursery we use only Organic, non-GMO seeds and grow in OMRI-Listed seedling mix, which is fortified with OMRI-Listed worm castings and mycorrhizae. We water-in and encourage our seedlings along with sips of Great Big Tomatoes Organic Liquid Compost. All Two Dog Tomatoes are hand-sown and hand-transplanted with love, one organic seed at a time, and are fully hardened-off before being sold.

Updated Growing Tips & Heat/Cool Tolerant Information

We've updated and expanded our Growing Tips and Terminology, and now it's all on its own page with the button of the same name. Please check it out!

As our summers get hotter, keep in mind tomatoes begin dropping their blossoms and pollen becomes sterile once temperatures get steadily over 90 degrees. Therefore, we do encourage you to have Shade Cloth on hand. It could totally save your harvest!

We thank you for your business and look forward to an amazing season.
As always, Happy Harvests!

TOMATILLO VERDE

70 Days. Heirloom. Certified Organic.

This is the hugely popular Mexican husk tomato, used to make delicious, traditional Salsa Verde. Rangy plants produce large yields of beautiful green 2-3” fruits.

Nice sweet/tart flavors.

Aunt Molly's Ground Cherry**  NEW FOR 2017!  **

65 Days. Rare Heirloom. Certified Organic.

Closer to a Tomatillo than to a Tomato, Ground Cherries are great little snacking fruits borne in papery husks just like their cousins. The fruit of this popular Polish variety tastes like a combination of pineapple, vanilla and tomato - sweet and citrusy - and is great eaten raw or baked into tarts or pies. High pectin content also makes them perfect for jams. Fruits drop to the ground when ripe; if un-husked, they can keep for a couple months. Plants spread out laterally. Be sure to plant your seedling deep, as you would a tomato.

NOTE: You must grow two Ground Cherries together to ensure fruit set.

Early, Indeterminate.

The Dwarf Tomato Project

Spanning more than a decade and both hemispheres, the Dwarf Tomato Project is an ongoing labor of love founded by tomato aficionados Craig LeHoullier of North Carolina and Patrina Nuske Small of New South Wales. Along with a volunteer force of more than 100 tomato enthusiasts, the goal of breeding dwarf varieties, with full-size fruits, from some of the world's most beloved Heirlooms has been realized. With every year, more stabilized successes are being offered. We at Two Dog Nursery are excited to offer 5 varieties from this project in 2017. Growing to no more than 4' or 5' in height, yet producing as Indeterminates, these can easily be grown in 5-gallon pots on patios or in other smaller garden spaces. We hope you try some of these, and please do let us know about your results!
