These 1.5 inch pear-shaped tomatoes have been grown in American gardens since the 18th century. They were traditionally dried and packed away for winter use in substitute of figs. They are also used fresh. The Red Fig Tomato is named for a sugary delicacy that was made with this fruit and popular in the mid 1800s. The tomato is currently available from only three seed companies in the United States. Fresh Red Figs have a full tomato taste with very sweet skin. In addition to being a delicious plated solo act, they're perfect for contemporary tomato jams and chutney

We specialize in garlic along with a variety of other produce, all as lovingly tended as our alpaca friends.
