Hello and Welcome to Crafted Seed. My name is Mark Seabolt and I’m a tomato addict. Crafted Seed selections have been born out of an intense love of tomatoes, a curiosity of genetics, and a desire to create and share some outstanding new varieties.
In the near future, look for the Minimaters label or Crafted Seed label at seed sellers and nurseries near you. Until then, here is a glimpse of what is to come…
If you grow indoors, that means you have no primary season, so watch out for releases of new Minimater Series tomatoes at any time of the year. Beginning with Laura #5, releases under the Minimater series of tomatoes will continue to offer gourmet quality tomato varieties that can be grown in places never before thought possible, including indoors, tiny spaces, short season, and limited water situations due to their overall diminutive plant size. And market growers, selling Minimater plants loaded with green and ripening tomatoes is an instant market hit. Our first release, Laura #5 is specifically aimed at the novice gardener who isn’t ready to tackle a full sized tomato plant. Ready to insert directly into your choice of growing area, as little as a pot of soil and some water has you growing tomatoes at home.
Beyond the revolutionary new Minimaters, we have some unique and interesting varieties that offer something different from the mainstream varieties. Sometimes this means just exploring that unique tomato that shows up in our gardens, like the Ponderosa Series. Other times, it means creating something new with an end-goal in mind before the first tomato seed is planted, like our Mark’s Wild Cherry lines.
Join us on our journey to breed and select for exciting new varieties of tomatoes for you to enjoy in your gardens for years to come. Watch for our continued release of micro-dwarf tomato under the Minimater Series with an annual release of some of our outdoor varieties.
