Yellow Tomatoes are perfect for stuffed tomato entrees or simply for making into wedges for salads.
These bright colored tomatoes are sure to shine bright and catch your eye in the produce department with their golden yellow hue. Melissa’s Yellow Tomatoes have a beautiful, meaty texture and large size with tender skin, lending themselves to slicing for a Caprese salad with a drizzle of balsamic and a chiffonade of fresh basil, or, piled high in a hearty sandwich with olive oil, salt and pepper. The flavor profile presents low acid with a sweet finish, making this a great intro tomato for young palates. Kids will love these tomatoes and might change their opinions on this vegetable-like fruit.
When selecting Melissa’s Yellow Tomatoes, look for plump, heavy tomatoes with smooth skins and minimal, if any, scarring. Ripe tomatoes are firm but will have a little bit of give when you squeeze them.
Unripe should be stored in a paper bag or a cardboard box in a single layer in cool temperatures until ripe. Store perfectly ripe tomatoes on the counter away from sunlight.
