Seiger offers incredible amounts of high quality 4 ounce bright red fruits, early even in cool seasons and it produced for weeks after other varieties had succumbed to a number of diseases, including Late Blight, Early Blight and Septoria. It is our favorite early slicing tomato for the Northeast.

Organic Seiger Tomato We asked Amadeus (of Swiss Biodynamic seed company Sativa Rheinau) about an early, delicious and disease-resistant tomato. He smiled and said, "You know you ask for the Holy Grail?" (Ohhhh, we know!) "I don't have the Holy Grail, but try Seiger." We agree: Seiger offers incredible amounts of high quality 4 ounce bright red fruits, early even in cool seasons and it produced for weeks after other varieties had succumbed to a number of diseases, including Late Blight, Early Blight and Septoria. Short of a Holy Grail, try Seiger. It is our favorite early slicing tomato for the Northeast.

This tomato is perfect and prolific November 18, 2018
Reviewer: Barbara Page from Hardwick, MA United States  
What an awesome tomato. This is the gift that keeps on giving! We had a bumper crop. It is a perfect size for eating raw, cooking and canning.

Seiger Was Awful - No Stars November 8, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Grosse Pointe Farms, MI United States  
I prefer acidic tomatoes, but Seiger was horribly sour. In addition, there was a hint of a just plain bad/rotten taste. There was no tomato flavor. I spit out every Seiger I tasted. It was a stunted plant and all it's leaves were yellowish and diseased early, before the fruit ripened. I have never seen such disease so early. I pulled it up July 29th. The leaves had a lot of Septoria type spots (I'm not good at disease identification) and were maybe in the earliest stages of LB. I put a branch in a damp plastic bag and I think I got a few whitish spores. I grew 14 tomato plants and it was one of three pulled early for disease. The other two (Chalk's Early Jewel and Pink Siberian Tiger, neither from you) did have LB later.

tentative 5 star November 28, 2016
Reviewer: John Aldrich from Sterling, CT United States  
i can really only review the short life of these tomatoes. they were quick to germinate, gave me strong plants. twice. we got two very late frosts this year. the first one killed the first batch. but i had enough time to start a second batch from seed (knowing that they might get hit with a fall frost and not produce fully) and the second batch got hit with a second late frost. but i will definitely buy them in the spring, and try try again

Starting tomatoes from seed September 30, 2015
Reviewer: TeriB from Barton, NY United States  
I was a little disappointed that the Seiger germination was about 80%. But the plants were prolific in bearing small tomatoes, perfect for salads. They were easy to dry because they has only 2-3 seed cavities and so I deseeded them and sprinkled with Italian spices and salt and dried. They were like tomato chips! Delicious flavor dried or fresh.
