Tomato Varieties Guide
Beefsteak Tomatoes:Classic and most commonly used tomato. Thick, juicy and meaty.
Pearl Tomatoes:Pearl Tomatoes are tender with a thinner skin and hardly any seeds.
Red Heirloom Tomatoes:Red (or pink) varieties have that classic tomato flavor, and a balance of both acid and sweet.
Yellow Heirloom Tomatoes:
Orange and yellow varieties have a mild sweet flavor with the lowest acid content of all heirloom tomatoes
Green Heirloom Tomatoes:
Lower in acid than red tomatoes. Often sweet and tart.
Small tomatoes that are sweet juicy and tend to be less mealy than larger varieties.
These varieties have less seeds than other tomatoes. Their meatiness makes them great for tomato sauce.
Purple Heirloom Tomatoes:
These often are maroon or brown in color, and are more acidic than green or yellow varieties. They have an almost smoky-sweet flavor profile.
