Green Zebra Tomatoes
Nope, these tomatoes aren't unripe! Green zebra tomatoes are an heirloom variety noted for their bright green color. Some fruits develop a striped pattern, some an orange blush, and others remain an unmarked pale green shade. Ripe green zebras are firm, but have a slight give when pressed.

A mini-roma tomato, the Juliet is great for eating raw in salads, especially caprese style with olive oil, basil and mozzarella. This tomato also works well in a fresh, summery tomato sauce.
We grow a couple of varieties of paste tomatoes on the farm, including Amish and Hogheart. Paste tomatoes are denser than slicing tomatoes, which makes them especially well-suited to canning whole or cooking down into marinara sauce.
Paul Robeson Tomato
Deep burgundy fruits with green coloring around the stem, this Russian heirloom tomato has a sweet, smokey flavor.
Sungold Cherry Tomatoes
Sungolds are a sweet-tart little cherry tomato with a sunny orange color. They're almost irresistible straight from the vine, but they're also delicious in a quick pasta sauce of sungolds, garlic, olive oil, and a pinch of salt. Add a bit of crushed red pepper for heat, if you like.
The Valencia tomato is a meaty orange fruit with very few seeds. Sweet, yet acidic, this tomato has a full, rich flavor. The Valencia is a great slicing tomato.
These tomatoes are actually more of an orange color. They're larger than the Valencia tomato, but similar in color. Yellow Brandywines have a more complex flavor than other yellow tomatoes.
