Vine ripened tomatoes are one our staples for dinner in the fall. A year just would not be right without them. With hundreds of varieties of heirloom tomatoes available, we try to choose varieties that have great flavor, diverse colors and shapes, and that do well in our mountain climate. We love the flavor differences ranging from the sweet, mild Dr. Wyche’s to the sweet, tangy Black Krim. The yellow, purple, black, red and pink color differences make a beautiful, enticing display on a plate. Simply serve them with a little salt or dress them up with balsamic vinegar, fresh red onion and fresh basil.
