Heirloom Tomatoes

By uthus2000 | uthus2000 | 2 Sep 2019


I went into the local IGA (Independent Grocers Association) and found these in the produce section. I live in a small town in the mid-west with a population of about 3,500. This is something that I've never seen here.

If I go to a larger town to a Publix, Kroger, Whole Foods, or Fresh Thyme, I'd expect to see something similar. They cater to a larger, more diverse clientele.

These were a product of Canada, BTW.

Heirloom tomatoes tend to have thicker skins than Americans are used to. A lot of them have a higher acid concentration too.

I sliced this thing up and seeded it before I diced it to put in a salad. I'll be drying the seeds out so I can plant them in my flower bed next year.

I'm a beekeeper electrician in a great small town in a terrible state.
