How to Choose a Tomato

With over 3000 heirloom tomatoes and a whopping 15,000 known tomato varieties in production, picking the right tomato for your own backyard can seem like a daunting process.

West Coast Seeds has provided this handy chart that may help simplify things a bit.

Obviously these are just a few varieties that this particular outlet sells, but it is good launching point for the overwhelmed tomato chooser!

Most of the varieties mentioned above are easily sourced at local nurseries as well.

Whatever variety you choose, you are sure to be rewarded by a smacking taste sensation. There is nothing like biting into a sun-kissed home-grown tomato. Unless it’s a sun-kissed home-grown tomato wrapped in a fresh basil leaf.

Delectable!
