Heirloom Tomatoes

15 Jul


Sweet Thing came home from the Ripley Tomato Festival with these Heirloom tomatoes. I tried them and I can almost eat them. They are not pretty, as is the case with most heirloom vegetables. She said they were really tasty, some of the best she ever ate. I am going to try to save the seeds out of one of them and see if I can raise some on the homestead next year. Maybe I can develop a taste for raw tomatoes, I know they would be good for me. Any of you have any favorite heirloom vegetables you like?

    Japanese Black Truffle hands down. Followed by Brandywine pink or orange and Lemon Boy.

    Oooh, I love about any kind of heirloom. Black Krim, Black Cherry and Rutgers tomatoes. Sliver queen corn. Rocky Ford cantaloupes. Oh, Moon and Stars watermelons.

      I think all heirlooms have a better taste than the hybrids, they just have flaws that make them unsuitable for commercial sale.
