This famous Japanese tomato is just as amazing as its namesake, a folk-hero who fought demons around the modern city of Okayama. He was born from a peach making him just as sweet as these little bright pink tomatoes, which rarely crack even during uneven waterings and hot summers.

Tomato: Truly a classic garden vegetable! There is nothing like a fresh, vine-ripened garden tomato. Tomatoes are a native to North America but have woven themselves throughout western cuisine. They are varieties specialized for almost any use you can have of them. From cherries to plum to sauce to slicing to beefsteak tomatoes there is a tomato that is right for you!

Growing Tips: Tomatoes can get quite large so give them a good 24 inches of space in the garden in order to make sure they enough light and air flow around them to stay healthy. They also like a good strong trellis to support the plant and help give them that light and air flow as well as keep their fruit clean. Tomatoes are also good feeders. Give them a healthy dose of compost before planting and nice deep mulch at planting.
