These little tomatoes stand up to their name! Blush tomatoes will grow green, and then turn yellow, like a Sungold.
They will remain at their full length, about two inches long, but wait to pick them until a lovely pink blush starts to appear over their yellow flesh. Blush tomatoes have a creamy, almost tropical flavor, and their softer skin and flesh lend them to juicer preparations.
