Two types of dark fleshed tomatoes, heirlooms, indeterminate are depicted. The flesh is darker than a normal red tomato, depending upon the amount of ripening, and the fruit has a unique, pleasant, distinct taste. These are field ripened, which are seldom seen in stores. Usually any tomato that has a perfect shape with no markings is picked green or long before ripening. The dark fleshed tomatoes are certainly my favorites and when a tomato is needed these plants are checked first. At the present time they are a hard sell, since the public has become use to perfect shaped tomatoes, picked green.
