From the world-class garden of acclaimed food writer Amy Goldman, a gorgeously illustrated guide to the worlds most beautiful and delicious tomatoes.
Every year, renowned grower Amy Goldman produces an amazing 500 varieties of tomatoes on her farm in New Yorks Hudson Valley. Here, in 250 gorgeous photos and Goldmans erudite, charming prose, is the cream of the crop, from glorious heirloom beefsteaks - that delicious tomato you had as a kid but cant seem to find anymore - to exotica like the currant tomato, a pea-sized fruit with a surprisingly big flavor.

More than just a loving look at one of the world's great edibles, this is a philosophy of eating and conservation between covers — an irresistible book for anyone who loves to garden or loves to eat.
