When Dr. John Cole, a neurosurgeon, was featured in a column last year, and it was the first time I had ever heard of heirloom tomatoes. At the time, he was traveling to Louisville to Fresh Market to buy that type of tomatoes, which come in a variety of colors.
An heirloom tomato is a variety that has been passed from gardener to gardener. Heirlooms come from seeds and are easy to share.
Heirloom varieties’ greatest quality is their old-time flavor and there’s a wide vareity of tastes.
