Copia is a very juicy and flavorful variety, a cross between two Heirlooms, Green Zebra and Marvel Stripe. A new tasteful variety! Named for "Copia" the American Center for Food, Wine and the Arts in Napa California.
Goliath are giant red beefsteak tomatoes that grow on huge vines, an heirloom from the late 1800's. This one just happens to be a bit small. Dark pink and slightly ribbed, they are meaty and have few seeds. Most fruits are 1-2 lbs.
Garden Peach is an heirloom colored like a peach and has a sweet mild flavor. Fruits are 2-4 oz. and the vines are prolific and very easy to grow in poor soil. The skins are soft and actually feel like suede.

Yummmmmmmmmmm! Copia looks like my kind of tomato! But I am very curious about Garden Peach. Hungry for tomatoes now..I will go be satisfied by my Siberia.....which are by the way improving in taste as the summer goes on. Earlier on they were way more mild. Ruby has been giving me a few too. Actually, the ID on Ruby is either wrong or currants are bigger than I thought they were.
