Tomato, Slicer ($4.00/lb)

Regular price $4.00

We are currently growing Bigdena as our vine-ripened “slicer” tomato which is a nice, flavorful tomato.

PACKAGING – We sell tomatoes in 1-pound increments (e.g. 1 lb. = 1+ lb., 2 lbs.. = 2+ lbs., etc.). The tomatos weigh over 3 ounces each and are vine-ripen and picked after reaching their full flavor (at least 50% pink AKA “breakers”). Most commercially grown tomatoes available in grocery stores are harvested green to withstand shipping and storage and ripened later which impacts their flavor. 

SLICER TOMATO – Slicer tomatoes typically uniformly round with thicker skins, rarely split, have a longer shelf-life, and are extremely versatile in culinary use. Their all-around use includes eating fresh (salads, sandwiches, burgers, etc.) and used in cooking (grilling, omelets, canning, etc.) because they stand up to heat well.

STORING – The best way to store tomatoes is with no stems, sitting on a flat surface (e.g., large plate) stem side down, and at room temperature. Never store tomatoes in a refrigerator and keep them out of direct sunlight. A good way to speed-ripen tomatoes is by putting them in a bag with bananas.

NUTRITION – Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and lycopene (known for its antioxidant properties). Tomatoes are also low in calories and high in fiber, making them a healthy addition to any diet.

HOW WE GROW - All of our fresh produce is non-GMO, grown hydroponically and year-round in greenhouses with natural light, and never exposed to harsh chemicals to provide clean, highly nutritious, and delicious produce. Our strict standards of responsible, sustainable, and regenerative farming include conservation (water, electricity, etc.), organic pest management only (beneficial insects, OMRI-certified products, etc.), and land management.
