German growing tomatoes is quite similar to that of an Auntie Rubys. But, she's not from Germany. Her real name is Suzanna Maria Rubens, and she's a California-based entrepreneur who started selling European-style tomatoes (genetically modified) all over the United States. She's been selling her tomatoes and seeds ever since.
You might be wondering why I've decided to include her story in this article. Well, it's simply because Auntie Rubys has become such a celebrity in the seed selling world. Her book, "Pages From a History," was so popular that it inspired a TV show and multiple magazine articles. And the fact that she can grow a tomato with seeds from the actual grape makes her seem almost super-human... or at least, I'm assuming that's what her real identity is.
There are two problems with buying her seeds online, though. First, you have to trust that she's selling the genuine product. Her website describes her seeds as having originated "in the land of yesteryear." I'm willing to bet that her real name isn't "Auntie." And even if it's German, there's no way of knowing if it's really German.
The second problem with buying from her is that you're likely to end up paying too much for the product. Her books often describe her "garden of dreams" as being a small plot of land where she grew all of her food. It's impossible to imagine how she could sell all those seeds for such a low price. Plus, her tomatoes aren't really that big.
In order to avoid both of these situations, I advise that you buy your German green tomatoes from someone else. You should check out a few different vendors to see what they specialize in. For example, someone who exclusively grows Italian herbs might have Italian seeds for sale. Someone else who grows Mediterranean vegetables might have Spanish seeds available. Just be sure that the company you get your seeds from keeps records of where their seeds come from and how fresh and profitable they are.
I've even heard of people whose aunt's German soil was so good that they simply grew their own plants instead of using the seed packets. That would be the best solution, if you were short on time and able to go to a local garden center. Otherwise, you need to be prepared to do a bit of research. The German soil in question had to be grown in a climate that experienced hardly any frost. It was also planted in an area that experienced very little soil erosion, meaning the roots got almost all of the moisture they needed. Those factors combined to make the tomatoes thrive.
If you're willing to spend a little time doing your own research, there are plenty of quality German seeds available. Just be careful that you don't end up with something that will only grow well in a moderately sunny location and that it gets a fair amount of watering. If you get a plant that is in poor condition, it won't produce very well.
One of the best things about buying wholesale Aunt Suzie's German green tomato seeds is that you can find just about any variety that you might be looking for. If you want to grow tomatoes, you'll be able to find exactly what you need. If you're looking for a great way to present those tomatoes at your next party, give them away as part of a tasteful salad or use them to make a delicious meal for dinner. Either way, you'll be happy with the results.
