CSA members have access to our pick-your-own crops (tomatoes, flowers, beans, and herbs) as soon as they are ready.
A few notes:
Heirloom tomatoes are varieties of tomatoes that have been around for at least fifty years. They are not often sold in grocery stores because they do not suit commercial production requirements, but they are usually much tastier and more varied than supermarket tomatoes.
Our heirloom varieties come in many different shapes, sizes, and colorings. For the most part ripe tomatoes will look full and heavy, will be pliant to the touch, and should come off of the stem without too much effort. Some varieties are best when they have what are known as green shoulders, so don't worry about a bit of greenness if the tomato seems otherwise ripe.
You will probably come across some plants with fruits that look different from those in the rest of the row. This is due mostly to hybridizing, which has occurred among our varieties, and partly to planting error. See what you can find!
