tomatoMost people love the sweet taste of heirloom tomatoes. These vegetables (technically a fruit) lack a genetic mutation present in most tomatoes today. That mutation gives most tomatoes a uniform color but takes away a good deal of the sweetness that would otherwise be present. Because this change in the DNA is not present in heirlooms, these tomatoes can have distinct coloration that makes each one unique. Watch this video to learn what characteristics to look for in an heirloom tomato. Preparations and storage tips are also offered in this quick video. After watching these tips, take your heirloom tomato home and enjoy the delicious, nutritious treat with your family!
