Product Description

For too many years, the tomatoes in supermarkets have been beautiful but bland.  Only recently has a bounty of heirlooms and new varieties, with that wonderful old-fashioned tomato flavor, become available.  THE GREAT TOMATO BOOK guides you through this astonishing diversity of vine-ripened delights, offering background and cultivation tips for over 80 tomato varieties, including such favorites as Radiator Charlie's Mortgage Lifter, Black Prince, Boxcar Willie, and Aunt Ruby's Yellow Cherry.

Author Gary Ibsen, tomato grower and founder of the renowed TomatoFest in Carmel, CA, tells you not only which tomatoes taste the best but also where to find them, and shares secrets on growing your own.  Over 25 recipes, from Fried Green Tomatoes to Arabian Gazpacho, round out this essential vine-to-kitchen reference.
