Indigo Rose Tomato

These are my beach farm grown "Indigo Rose" tomatoes. Many have asked how they taste and the answer is okay. They are plenty juicy, and maybe this is killing some of the flavor. They do have a very pleasant acidity and little in the way of sugar. I will grow them again and toss them with "Sungold" cherries for color and sweetness.

More than one farm was selling these at the Grand Army Plaza Saturday market. They all labeled them heirloom. Seems anything not looking like a dull red tennis ball is an heirloom these days. But for the record -these aren't heirlooms, unless your grandfather is a university in Oregon.

If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
