Tomato lovers, get ready to have some fun!

We’re excited to announce our brand new Tomato Chooser app for iPhone, which allows you to browse and sort through 333 tomato varieties. From red orbs and rich black beauties to petite yellow cherries and green-speckled zebras, the diversity of tomatoes in this app will dazzle the eyes and make you yearn for summer.

You can filter the varieties by color, size, time to maturity, disease resistance, growth habit (determinate vs. indeterminate), best uses, and more — making your discovery of the perfect varieties for your garden a snap. For instance, if you want an indeterminate variety with large, yellow fruits that matures late in the season, select those criteria and — bam! — the app lists exactly what you’re looking for.

Many varieties even include quotes by five tomato-book authors, and you can sort by which varieties have exceptional flavor, according to these tomato experts. Click on any tomato you’re interested in to see its photo and full profile, which even includes details about any known history of old heirloom varieties.

You’re bound to discover new favorites and become totally tomato-obsessed after spending time with this app!

Ratings and Reviews

Nicely done!


I'm convinced that the previous reviewer has a rival app... This a really great app and very nicely done.
There are how-to booklets by the experts, along with their personal comments. There are photos and complete descriptions of over 300 tomato varieties. Recommendations for regional varieties. The "chooser" did a good job of finding short season paste varieties (the less restrictive you are with the search, the more results) suitable for drying. The favorites hearts are very handy while "shopping" -- then click the favorites button to see your list.
I'd like to be able to add varieties, recipes, and helpful booklets... Upgrade?

I can't believe I paid for this!


A total waste of money. I could find all the same information free in an heirloom seed catalogue. Resources just take you to a MEN page to sign up for another paid subscription. And only one book is listed as a resource. When I attempted to put in perimeters to find a tomato with characteristics I liked, 0 results was always the answer. Save your money. So disappointed this scam came from a magazine I usually like. 😞
