Heirloom Tomatoes

Heirloom tomatoes (also called heritage tomatoes) are grown from seeds that have been passed down over generations. They come true from seed, making them easy to share. Generally, they vary widely in size, shape, color and taste but typically have higher sugar content and some say a much better tomato flavor than conventional varieties.

The main reason to choose heirloom tomato varieties is the taste and Crystal Valley’s mixed heirloom tomatoes are big and fleshy with an excellent flavor. You’ll find a wide range of flavors depending on the variety but we have specially selected each one to give you the best. Our heirloom tomatoes are greenhouse grown in Guatemala.

TIPS FOR SELECTION

Look for tomatoes with a bright, smooth surface, and firm with no obvious defects.

HOW TO STORE

Store at room temperature for the best taste.
