|Food Buzz: History of Heirloom Tomatoes|
River Bottom Farms mix features a variety of heirlooms which provides a myriad of flavors, colors, shapes and sizes. Highlights are the Oregon Spring whose earliest fruits are its largest and predominantly seedless, the White Wonder, which is creamy white, low acid and melon-like sweet, the Striped Cavern, which has a unique lobed-shape, brilliant color, meaty flesh and thick walls (great for stuffing) and the Striped Roman, which is a grower's dream: it's shaped like a jalapeno pepper, has variegated coloring, is super meaty and has amazing flavor. Other varieties in the mix include Dr. Wyche's Yellow, Missouri Pink Love Apple, Japanese Trifele, Copia, Anna Russian, Red Zebra and Black
These tomatoes' first picking arrives in the first week of July.
An heirloom variety mix with many heirloom tales to match. The Anna Russian tomato seed was sent to a Russian immigrant many many years ago from a gardener in Russia. Today this pink, high-yielding, heart-shaped fruit makes Russian tomatoes famous. Dr. Wyche's Yellow heirloom is named after the doctor himself, who was once owner of the Cole Brothers Circus. He is said to have used his circus elephants' manure to fertilize his gardens. His tomatoes have a smooth texture, bright tangerine color and sweet almost tropical taste.
These heirloom tomatoes come from far and wide, origins ranging from Oregon, Ohio, West Virginia, Missouri, Germany and Russia.
