These are a medium sized beefsteak variety grown indoors on tall trellis-type systems. The fruit is vine-ripened, then harvested from “mother plants” still attached to their stems in groupings of 5 or 6 tomatoes called “trusses” or “clusters”. These tomatoes are prized for their uniform shape, size and rich red color.

Their flavor is mildly sweet with a firm, pleasing texture that is great for slicing raw into salads or as a base for many traditonal sauces.

Select tomatoes that feel heavy for their size with no bruises or over ripe softness. Vine should be bright green and pliable.

The most flavorful fruit will have a rich tomato aroma. Store fresh tomatoes in a cool, dark place, stem-side down and use within a few days.

Tomatoes should not be refrigerated; it nullifies flavor and turns the interior mealy.
