Publisher Comments:

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. Along with the photos are profiles of the tomatoes, filled with fascinating facts on their history and provenance; a section of more than 50 delicious recipes; and a master gardeners guide to growing your own. 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.

About the Author

Amy Goldman is a passionate gardener, seed saver, and well-known advocate for heirloom fruits and vegetables. She is the author of The Compleat Squash and Melons for the Passionate Grower, and she appears frequently on such TV programs as Martha Stewart Living and Victory Gardens.

I thought I was ahead of the heirloom tomato game, having grown them for 5 years and grown at least 15 varieties every year. But this book is fabulous and the author is the last word in heirloom expert!
