We’re Dreaming of… Tomatoes

OLD VIRGINIA TOMATOES

Yes, will admit we’re tomato obsessed. And, even though it’s freezing cold outside and it’s still a few months before you’ll start your seed, you’re probably already dreaming about those red, juicy tomatoes and wondering which ones you’ll grow this season. No matter what the variety — plum, beefsteak, heirloom or grape — tomatoes are perfect for sprucing up a main dish, tossed in salads or simply eaten fresh off the vine! Here’s one tomato you’ll want to add to your garden this season:

Tomato Old Virginia Red – This heirloom from the Giltner family is old time sweet/ tart tomato. With dark red, smooth fruits this tomato has very few seeds. The 5-6 ft tall plants produce even in a long hot summer. This tomato has good yields and flavor.
