    Heirloom Tomatoes


    Origin: Holland

    Heirloom tomatoes come in a stunning rainbow of colours and have sweet juicy flesh. Their standout characteristic is their sweetness

    They’re juicy, meaty and flavourful and not highly acidic, making them ideal for just eating fresh or in an Heirloom Tomato Salad. 

    Our larger variety of Heirloom tomatoes are similar in size to classic beefsteak tomatoes, these are often bi-lobed and come in a bright orange or yellow hue. Their standout characteristic is their sweetness, though; these heirloom tomatoes are prized as slicing tomatoes, to be sliced or diced and eaten fresh. Pick them up for a rich and velvety flavour.

    The bright green tomatoes really pop and have a sweet yet slightly sharp flavour when ripe. No surprise that they get their name from the distinctive outer stripes.

    Another variety in the mix is the Lucky Cross tomato. Juicy, and almost fruity in flavour, these multi-ribbed tomatoes are the perfect swirl of red and yellow. Other bi-coloured tomatoes show their colours in distinct stripes or ribs—the Lucky Cross shows off a swirled, ombre effect that makes it appear to be blushing. 

    Possibly the most popular variety of heirloom tomato, the Brandywine has an intense flavour and is comparable in size to a beefsteak tomato. They’re juicy, meaty and flavourful and not highly acidic. Try Brandywines in sandwiches (talk about the perfect BLT). These tomatoes pair beautifully with dairy, so sliced and served with cheese or a spoonful of cottage cheese, they’re just the thing. Brandywines are in season all throughout the summer months.
