Baby Looms

What a great find at the Fresh Market this afternoon… “Baby Looms”! These are miniature heirloom tomatoes, great for salads or pasta. Lots of sizes, shapes and colors. Very rich in vitamin C, low calorie, and cholesterol free!

Just a few are featured above:

Brandywine, dates back to the late 1800’s, reddish-pink skin with veins of green. Rich and succulent in texture with an old fashioned home grown taste.

Cherokee Purple, popular for over 100 years and is dark red to dark purple in color.  Smokey in taste with a bit of sweetness. Originally grown by the Cherokee Indians.

And, the Gold Medal variety.  Reddish pink and yellow marbling, very juicy and super sweet. This tomato originates from the Black Forest region of Germany.
