Baby Heirloom Tomatoes
June 11, 2012 - Fearlessly Archived - Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
What’s old is new again. Not really new, yet certainly au courant, heirloom tomatoes, by definition, have been around for years – hundreds of years, in some cases. Heirloom tomato varieties differ from most commercial varieties in that they are grown from seeds that have been passed down from plant to plant over many years, not hybridized to highlight specific characteristics. They also have fabulous names like Dr. Carolyn, Chadwick Cherry, Orange Flame, Sugar Snack and Thai Grape, to name just a few.
We’ve become quite fond of Baby Heirloom Tomatoes, smaller versions of heirloom varieties, which we think are a terrific opportunity to try a bunch of different heirloom varieties, in a one pound package, for the excellent price of $3.49*. Some are super sweet, some more tart – all are bursting with fresh tomato flavor.
*Ounces, price and recipes may vary by region.
In the West Coast, a one pound package of Baby Heirloom Tomatoes is $2.99
In the East Coast, Midwest and Southeast a one pound package of Baby Heirloom Tomatoes is $3.49
