The choices available for heirloom tomatoes are endless. Whether you select a purple, Brandywine, yellow blush variety  (or some of each) you’ll be pleasantly surprised with a distinct seasonal flavor.


When selecting heirloom tomatoes at the farmers’ market or your local grocery store, it is important to note that what makes them so tasty also makes them more fragile. It is best to use within a few days after purchase and keep at room temperature.
