Heirloom Tomatoes ~for their old fashioned taste
~for their natural beauty
- We all know that tomatoes are good for you, high in Vitamin C and A, a good source of fibre as well as containing high levels of the potent antioxidant “lycopene”. But the tomatoes available in supermarkets have been developed for their ability to be shipped long distances and remain on the market shelf for long periods of time. Their skin is often thick and tough and their taste is to say the least “unremarkable”.
- But what is old has become new again! The longing for that old fashioned tomato taste that was thought gone forever has revived an interest in heirloom tomatoes; the varieties that were grown for hundreds of years by families who saved the seeds from these wonderful plants and passed them down from generation to generation.
- We, at Spring Break Farm, specialize in growing the largest selection of heirloom tomatoes in Central Ontario
- At our annual Heirloom Tomato Seedling Sale in May we offer over 100 varieties of heirloom tomatoes. Romantic names like “Mariana’s Peace, “Mountain Princess”, “Box Car Willie” represent tomatoes that were prized for their distinctive taste often described as “smoky”, “tangy”, “tart with a hint of spicyness” – rainbow colours- bright reds, soft pinks, mellow yellows, brilliant oranges, dark mysterious purple/blacks, sassy stripes and cool greens in a myriad of sizes and shapes – tomatoes whose size range from smaller than a dime to those that weigh in at over 2 pounds. These are the tomatoes that you won’t readily find in your supermarket or as plants in your local garden centres.
