Robbie’s Produce Tips: Heirloom Tomatoes

Robbie with heirlooms2_360Heirloom Tomatoes

  • Selecting heirloom tomatoes is different than other tomatoes. These beauties should have a slight give. Even when soft, (picked super-ripe) they’re sweet, juicy, full of flavor and never mushy. Some varieties have a natural green color (like the Green Zebra), while others have a green color presence (Cherokee Purple) and are bursting with flavor.
  • Keep in mind that heirlooms are not bred to be perfect. They’ll have cracks scrapes and bruises, they’re perfectly fine to eat.
  • Handle with care as these are very delicate tomatoes.
  • Place tomatoes in separate bags when shopping so they don’t knock up against each other and bruise.
  • Once you get them home, store them at room temperature.
