The Slow Food Ark of Taste lists some of the world's most delicious foods, and targets them for preservation. Included are many heirloom vegetables, such as these six wonderful tomatoes. Our market customers agree ~ these are great favorites!
Amish Paste: with excellent flavor and a firm, meaty texture, this classic is as good for fresh eating as for sauce.
Aunt Ruby's German Green: a perfect balance of acid and sugar make this the most popular of the green tomatoes.
Brandywine (Sudduth's Strain): this old pink beefsteak is deservedly one of the most popular in America, for its many virtues including superlative flavor.
Cherokee Purple: our absolute favorite tomato, with a complex, smoky flavor that can't be beat for a slicing tomato.
Radiator Charlie's Mortgage Lifter: prolific (hence the name!) slicer tomato with excellent, well balanced flavor.
Red Fig: delicious, full tomato flavor for fresh eating; traditionally preserved by boiling with sugar as "figs."
Each package will contain at least 20-25 seeds, so the six-variety collection will include over 150 seeds. You may purchase individual varieties, or all six at a substantial discount.
