TERMS:
AAS—All American Selection, superior garden performance judged in impartial trials in North America.
Catfacing—misshapen, deformed fruit, caused by incomplete pollination, usually due to cold weather. 
Determinate—“Bush" tomatoes, varieties that grow to a compact height (generally 3'-4'). Determinates stop growing when fruit sets on the top bud. All the tomatoes from the plant ripen at approximately the same time (usually over period of 1- 2 weeks). They require a limited amount of staking for support and are well suited for container planting.
Heirloom—an open-pollinated tomato that has been grown without crossbreeding for 40 or more years whose seed grows "true to type."
Hybrid—a controlled method of pollination in which the pollen of two different species or varieties is crossed by human intervention, producing first generation offspring of two distant and distinct parental lines; any seed produced by F1 plants is genetically unstable and cannot be saved for use in following years.
Indeterminate—“Climbing” tomatoes that will grow and produce fruit until killed by frost. They can reach heights of up to 12 feet although 6 feet is normal. Indeterminates will bloom, set new fruit, and ripen fruit all at the same time throughout the season. They require substantial staking for support.
Open-pollinated—pollen is carried by natural mechanisms, like bees or wind. As long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI)—An organization that developed and maintains a mechanism through which plant breeders can designate the new crop varieties they have bred as open source. This mechanism is advanced as an alternative to patent-protected seeds sold by large agriculture companies such as Monsanto or DuPont.
Potato Leaf (PL)—leaves usually have no or few interruptions of the leaf edge. Sometimes there are a few large lobes or notches, but most of the time the leaf edge is smooth. 
Rugose—an often darker green puckered surfaced leaf.
VFN—Resistant to Verticillium Wilt (V), Fusarium Wilt (F), and nematodes (N).
