Store your tomatoes at room temperature. The flavor and texture of tomatoes suffer when the fruit is chilled.
Heirloom tomatoes are bred for their flavor and simple preparation best allows that intense flavor to shine through. Tomatoes can be sliced and drizzled with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt and pepper or layer slices with basil and mozzarella for a Caprese salad.
Roasted tomatoes have a richer, concentrated flavor.
There are hundreds of salsa recipes to try and most are dramatically improved with the use of heirloom tomatoes. Tomatoes are also the main ingredient in Gazpacho, a cold soup that is perfect for summer.

Easy to grow, prolific vines,
by Mac C.
Tiny, pea sized, pale yellow tomatoes that are full of flavor, yet mild in acid. Quite prolific!

A delicious treat for summer.
Giving and giving and heat loving!
These small and flavorful tomatoes do really well in the North Texas hot climate. They produce and produce even when other varieties quit on you! You can pick them one by one, or wait until the whole vine is mostly ripe and cut it off. They also are great at self seeding, we get tons of volunteers that come up. They don't mind being moved either. I just wait until they are about 5" tall with some true leaves and dig up and put them where I want. The plants in full sun get about 7+ feet tall. If they are in part shade, they will still produce slowly and maintain a more compact size. Beware the hornworms seem to like this variety more than the others.

A Must Try!
We live in SC and we just tried these this year. They are AMAZING. Really prolific and have a perfect balance of sweet with a little acid. They are the size of blueberries! All the neighbors we gave them to have been raving about them!
These plants produced, but the fruit was extremely small.
