What's Your Favorite Heirloom Tomato?

June 20, 2012

Here are my favorites:
Cherokee Purple, immense, beautifully colored and fabulous flavor
Green Zebra, beautifully colored yellow and green, bright flavor, nice in salads
Stupice, smallish fruit, good flavor but reliably produces here in the fogbelt

Leave a comment to share your favorites and why. I’m especially interested in any that perform well in coastal, cool environments.
