I'm trying some Heirloom tomatoes this year too. Started my seeds indoors last Sunday and about 1/3 have sprouted. I purchased these seeds from tomatofest

Black Plum -
One of my favorite Russian varieties that produces a long and steady crop of 2-inch elongated plum-shaped fruits colored a beautiful deep-mahogany with dusky-green shoulders. Fruit resembles a small paste tomato but with thinner walls. Unique sweet tangy flavor.
This tomato produces a delightful, 1-inch round, yellow with red tinge and marbling. Gold flesh. Typically a 'cat's eye' star of yellow on one end of fruit. The delicious sweet taste is rich and fruity. This has been a favorite "candy" treat with kids at my tomato tastings.
A 2005 All-America Selections Award Winner and favorite among cherry tomato lovers. 1-inch, brilliant pinkish-red, oval-shaped cherry tomatoes with a pointed blossom end. Huge amounts of tomatoes produced in clusters with very sweet flavors. Great for good snacking, salads or adding to culinary dishes. A perfect choice for container or patio gardens.
I'd rather be lucky than good
