6th Annual Heirloom Plant Sale 2015

April 17, 2015 0 By David Zordani

www.5280heirlooms.com Annual Heirloom Plant Sale 2015For the past six years we’ve watched our Annual Heirloom Plant sale mature from, “let’s see if people like these things as much as we do,” into a full blown community event.  People have become educated and appreciate the value and taste of an Heirloom tomato.  Over the course of those same six years, the questions have turned from, “Uh… what exactly is an Heirloom tomato?” into, “I’m looking for a Mortgage Lifter, Black Krim, Green Zebra and… Cherokee Purple.  Do you have any of those?”

No wonder then, in that same amount of time, our sale has grown from 150 plants and 6 varieties of tomatoes into 2,000 plants and 50 varieties of Heirloom tomatoes and peppers.  Thank you so much for the continued support!

With that in mind, our 2015 Heirloom Plant Sale is fast approaching.  Below you will find the dates, times and location of our sale, so stop by and see what all the Heirloom fuss is about.
