 Heirloom Tomato Tips

What is an Heirloom Tomato?

Heirloom Tomatoes come from unaltered seeds that have not been cross pollinated or genetically modified. They are the same today as they were 100 years ago.

How to Pick

Heirloom tomatoes may look imperfect but are perfectly tasty. Each color will have a different texture. Green will be firmer, for example, while purple will be softer and very juicy.
