Sample the following fresh, flavorful varieties during the Local Tomato Tasting:
Open-pollinated and grown without genetic modification, heirloom tomatoes are beloved for their unique colors and shapes. Slice and use on sandwiches or in caprese salads to showcase these gorgeous garden works of art!
Yellow tomatoes have a less acidic, mildly sweet flavor. Their tender exterior, high water content, and delicate sweetness make them perfect for eating fresh.
Cherry & Grape Tomatoes
These tomatoes may be small in size but they’re big in flavor! Perfect for snaking or salads, cherry and grape tomatoes come in a variety of colors and shapes. Their sturdy exterior and medium acidity make them perfect for eating fresh or for use in cooking.
Firm in texture and with a lower water content than other fresh tomato varieties, Romas are the go-to when canning or making sauce.
Tart, tangy and crisp, green tomatoes are the opposite of their ripe counterparts. Dredged in cornmeal and fried, or used in place of tomatillos in fresh salsas and sauces, we love the fresh bite of these tomatoes!
