Striped German Tomato
We have a consensus: our favorite tomato this year is the Striped German, a yellow and orange, streaked, giant tomato that often weighs in at 2 pounds. The flavor is sweet, juicy, and complex, and the tomato's colors look beautiful sliced. It also has a wonderful smooth texture. Striped German tomatoes and most of the others we grow are heirloom tomatoes, which have been bred for good fresh-off-the-vine eating and passed down through generations. The downside to heirlooms is the same reason you don't see them often in the supermarket -- heirloom tomatoes don't ship or store well, and they look irregular and imperfect. We hope you enjoy them while they last!
