Heirloom Tomatoes

An heirloom tomato is an open-pollinated (non-hybrid) cultivar of tomato. And when it comes to taste, these flavorful, textured toms take the winning prize when compared to other “more hardy” varieties of tomato.

Summer won’t last forever—darn it—so now’s the time to enjoy a delicious, most extraordinary fruit of the vine. No need for bread to cover them in a sandwich, we suggest washing your heirloom tomato, closing your eyes, and taking a slow bite of rich, slightly sweet, goodness. We promise, you’re in for a treat.

Oh, and because we know you care about things like this, the Co-op’s heirloom tomatoes are locally grown!
