Great in a stew of white beans, kale, and roasted tomatoes, pasta e fagioli, or a just simple rustic pasta sauce. Excellent sliced and eaten raw, but the variety really shines with roasting, as it brings out the savory richness of flavor.
Incredibly colorful and delicious large-fruited slicing variety! Fruit runs 8 to 16 ounces. Exterior color is green with stripes in red and yellow. Creamy green flesh infused with various shades of red and yellow. Each of these colors has a different flavor resulting in a spicy, sweet, tart tomato with good acid all in one fruit. Fair to good production.
Introduced by Craig LeHoullier of Raleigh, NC, in 1991 from seed obtained from J. D. Green of Tennessee. Uniquely colored dusty rose-brown fruits weigh up to 12 ounces. Delicious sweet flesh. Indeterminate, 75-90 days from transplant.
Diminutive, about the size of a dime and usually smaller, with tremendous sweet taste. Great eaten right off the vine or in salads and as garnish. Often grown wild in non-trellised fashion with hundreds of fruit clusters on one plant! Reseeds year after year.
produces very high yields of uniform, attractive, bright red, 4-5 oz. tomatoes with very good flavor. Thick-walled fruit; ideal for fresh tomato sauces, salsas, and salads. Broad disease resistance package keeps Granadero healthy even under heavy disease pressure.
