Maya's Farm doesn't just sell fantastic organic produce; for a limited time, they'll also be selling plant starters for a ton of different heirloom tomatoes.
Maya Dailey (the Maya of Maya's Farm) has high hopes for this year's tomato harvest. "It's an El Nino year," she points out.

The exotic and delicious varieties available for home gardeners come in a rainbow of different colors. Esterina Cherry fits the bill for a good snacking tomato, while Dailey recommends the Cherokee Purple or Green Zebra for a caprese salad. If you're into a lower-acid tomato, the Japanese Black Trifele will treat you well. Other available varieties include Gold Medal, Copia, Moskvich, Pink and Yellow Brandywine, Indigo Rose, and Juane Flamme.
Each of these tomatoes is not only delicious and unique, but has a proven history of growing well in our Southwestern climate.
These seedlings will be available Wednesday through Sunday from 9 am - 2 pm at Maya's Farm Stand on the north side of the Farm at South Mountain and on Saturdays from 8-1 pm at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market. Dailey recommends putting these seedlings in the ground as soon as possible for the best results. Expect to harvest tomatoes from between May and June.
