Heirloom tomatoes are distinguished by several unique characteristics:

  1. Open Pollination: Heirloom tomatoes are produced through natural means like wind or insect pollination, allowing them to grow true to type over generations.

  2. Test of Time: These varieties are often decades or centuries old, having been passed down through generations due to their desirable qualities.

  3. Cultural Heritage: Heirloom tomatoes often have a rich history, being preserved within communities, families, or cultural groups.

  4. Unusual Colors and Patterns: Heirloom tomatoes come in a wide range of colors and patterns, including various shades of red, green, yellow, orange, pink, and purple. Their skins can display stripes, marbling, and other unique patterns.

  5. Superior Flavor: Compared to commercially grown hybrids, heirloom tomatoes are known for their richer and more complex flavors. This is partly due to a genetic mutation in commercial hybrids that impacts sugar development, which is not present in heirlooms.

Nutrient Farm Fruit is produced with the highest levels of farming stewardship.
