With so many different varieties of tomatoes, it can sometimes be difficult to keep them all straight. This year we have 4 varieties of cherry tomatoes. Here's an easy guide to help you remember your favorite...
Variety: Gold Nugget Type: Heirloom Orange Cherry Description: Not to be confused with Esterina, Gold Nugget is more pear-shaped and has a lower acid content. We have been growing Gold Nugget since 2014, but this variety may be on the chopping block for 2017.
Variety: Black Cherry Type: Heirloom Black Cherry Description: These almost grape-sized cherry tomatoes have wonderful flavor and are a favorite among our CSA members and customers alike.
Variety: Esterina F1 Type: Orange Cherry Description: A delicious orange cherry hybrid with wonderful acid and flavor. A great producer for us!
Variety: Bing Type: Red Cherry Description: Frustrations at the beginning of the season with splitting gave way to obsession as these wonderful small red cherries really started producing. Great flavor!
