Ben is rightThat produce is of variable quality, especially in a year with a tomato blight, should be the lesson learned from an imperfect heirloom tomato.

That said, if the epicures of a certain social standing decide to chase down perfect, reliable,  mass-market tomatoes instead of Cherokee Purples at the farmer’s market, I can only encourage them.   Yum.

(I thought about writing a post carefully considering trends and food choices, but then I had to eat a Green Zebra.  Tomatoes are finally here!)
