Tomato of the Day: Purple Bumblebee
Purple bumblebees are slightly larger than cherry tomatoes—crimson-fleshed, they are zigzagged with green and purple.
Purple bumblebees have a deep, complex flavor, and are hardy growers. They’re the ideal farmer’s market tomato thanks to their long growing season, crack-resistant fruits, and striking coloring.
All featured tomatoes come from Tomato Mountain Farm. Tomato Mountain is a certified organic farm in Brooklyn, Wisconsin. In addition to growing tomatoes, the 12-acre farm runs a home-delivery CSA to Chicago-area residents for 42 weeks of the year.
