Old Brooks produces an abundance of medium to large tomatoes and is an excellent addition to Hawaii's home gardens. This indeterminate tomato has many wonderful qualities, and is proving itself to perform well in Honoka'a on the Big Island. Early trials of this heirloom variety with beautiful, round, red fruit has shown resistant to late blight, blossom end rot and cracking.  This variety has also shown an ability to resist fruit fly stings in Honoka'a, which can be a big issue in some parts of Hawaiʻi. Old Brooks is a heavy producer with wonderful complex, well-balanced, tangy flavors and is great for eating fresh in salads. sandwiches or for salsa. 

Old Brooks requires trellising with a cage, stakes or support along fencing. It also grows well in generous pots - 10 gallons or larger, provided you supply plenty of support from a tomato cage. For best performance, be sure to keep up with pruning to reduce excess leaves, suckers and reduce diseases! 

Here's a video to help give you guidance and tips on how to best prune your tomatoes

Hawai‘i Seed Growers Network

The Hawaiʻi Seed Growers Network is a statewide group of artisanal farmers that have worked together over the past 13 years to develop and grow high-quality, locally grown, and adapted seed varieties for Hawai‘iʻs home gardeners and market farmers. Varieties selected for their online marketplace have been tested for multiple years by seed growers on their farms and gardens under Hawai‘i’s unique and diverse, subtropical climatic conditions. Seed growers carefully observe, hand select, and harvest from only the best plants to ensure well-adapted, healthy seeds sprout and grow well in your home garden. All seeds are open-pollinated (OP) varieties that allow you to begin saving your own seed, improving and strengthening these varieties in your home garden. Seeds are properly dried, tested for germination according to USDA standards, and carefully stored to ensure viability at N. Kohala Seed Bank, Nahelehele. Growing tips and seed-saving information are available on the Hawaiʻi Seed Growers Network website through the Blogs and Resource pages at: hawaiiseedgrowersnetwork.com.

Packets are made of paper and need to stay dry and in cool, dark storage.
Store in a cool DRY place with NO moisture or the seeds will sprout!
