What Are Heirloom Tomatoes?

Heirloom Tomatoes – An heirloom tomato is an open-pollinated variety that has been passed down at least 50 years through several generations in a family, ethnic, religious, or tribal group, or was commercially introduced before 1940.

Heirloom Tomatoes are difficult to grow for quality. They split easily and have a short shelf-life but they are flavorful and add colors to salads and summer dishes. Depending on how they fair you’ll get a mix over the next couple of weeks. We grow four types: Green zebra, Brandywine, Mr Stripey and Purple Cherokee.
