This week we will be featuring the plum tomatoes we are growing for the URI Tomato Trial.
|Left to Right: Granadero, Paisano, Golden Rave & Juliet|
Granadero: Bright red, 4-5 oz. tomatoes with very good flavor. These thick-walled fruit are good for fresh tomato sauces, salsas, and salads.
Paisano: Thick-walled, 4-5 oz. fruits in the true San Marzano shape. Good flavor and high solids for sauce or canning.
Golden Rave: Small, 2 oz fruits. Full, well-balanced, sweet flavor for fresh eating or cooking.
Juliet: Deep red, shiny fruits weighing 1 1/2-2 oz.. Delicious, rich tomato flavor for salads, great salsa, and fresh pasta
In addition we will be introducing a new variety of onion this weekend, the Rossa Lunga di Tropea Onion. It is an Italian heirloom onion that has an elongated shape similar to a torpedo. They are thin-skinned
glossy maroon bulbs with lighter interiors that slice easily into even
rings. The flavor is sweet, mild and delicious.
