Tomato Growers Supply Company
is a family-owned small specialty seed company founded in 1984 by Vince and
Linda Sapp. Our intention was to be the best source possible for gardeners
wanting to grow tomatoes from seed. We later expanded the catalog to
include peppers and eggplant since they are in the same plant family as
tomatoes. After Vince’s passing in 2006, Linda remained as owner with her
two children occasionally helping in the business.
Our first catalog featured about 100 tomato varieties illustrated with
black-and-white drawings. Today our tomato, pepper, and eggplant offerings
number about 500 unique types. Our offerings include fascinating heirloom
selections, newer open-pollinated types, as well as the best of hybrid
We believe in old-fashioned customer service, and a personalized approach, which
includes advice and conversation about growing our seeds. With more than
25 years in business, we have personally grown and experienced almost everything
we sell in our catalog.
Gardening is our passion at Tomato Growers Supply Company and we are active in a
local community garden as well. We have shared our seeds with schools,
charities, universities, churches, senior citizen centers, and community gardens
throughout the United States. We believe in fostering the love of
gardening and caring for the Earth in every way possible.
