|Food Buzz: History of Heirloom Tomatoes|
These heirlooms are hand-picked the day before they are sold at the market. Each tomato is perfectly ripe in color and flavor or they are simply not picked. A perfect blend containing a myriad of colors and tastes, the flavors range from sweet, smoky, melony, rich and tomato-true.
Heirloom tomatoes are primarily a summer crop.
Maryann Carpenter follows the unwritten farmers' rule of ethics; never reveal your secrets - competition is fierce! The information behind this special heirloom mix remains unpublished except for the one safe fact; it contains many of the most popular varieties available.
Heirloom tomatoes come with more than one definition, perhaps because there are so many varieties with so much unique history. For certain, they are an open-cultivated cultivar of tomato whose seeds have been passed along from a single crop generation to another. Most importantly, what allows them to maintain the heirloom name is that no genetically modified organism can be used in their production.
