WHAT'S ALL THE FUSS
ABOUT HEIRLOOM TOMATOES?

The simple answer is "flavor."

Of the 40 or so heirloom tomatoes
still being grown today,
"taste" is still the #1 reason
gardeners grow them.
Plus, each one is more beautiful
than the next -- with colors ranging
from rainbow yellow-and-red to dark purple.

This variety is the classic Brandywine heirloom tomato
which dates back to 1885 and was named after
the Brandywine Creek in Amish country, Pennsylvania.

Pick 'em ripe and warm (from the summer sun)
and eat them with basil and balsamic vinegar.
Nothing better!
