Home Grown Gold Heirloom Tomatoes

Just look at the "fruits" (actually vegetables) of my sweet husband's labor. This particular variety--no, I have no idea what that could possibly be--is a bright gold with red striping.    

While pretty to look at, they are even better when sliced and lightly salted! The inside is gold and red marbled. 

Growing heirloom tomatoes requires patience. We are learning they are slow growers and produce very few tomatoes per plant, so plant more than you think you can possibly use. If you can eat then all or can them, friends will be more than happy to take them off your hands, I promise.
