There's no denying it. Heirloom tomatoes taste better than hybrid tomatoes. What's more, heirloom tomatoes are considered a true breed. Therefore, you can save the seeds and plant them every year.   

How do you eat heirloom tomatoes?

Heirloom tomatoes are served with many foods. You can keep things simple and easy by serving the heirloom tomatoes with fresh basil and olive oil, or you can mix the flavors up and use heirloom tomatoes to make gazpacho. You can also bake the heirloom tomatoes by slicing and layering them in a baking dish along with eggplant and zucchini. You can also add heirloom tomatoes on top of avocado toast. 

What do heirloom tomatoes taste like?

Heirloom tomatoes have the perfect flavor that is sweet yet tart. In terms of texture, heirloom tomatoes have a slight mealy yet silky texture that makes them better than the average tomato.   

Why are heirloom tomatoes expensive?

Heirloom tomatoes are not mass-produced like regular tomatoes. Therefore, heirloom tomatoes cost more. In addition to this, heirloom tomatoes are prone to diseases, do not travel well, and produce less than regular tomatoes.
