Interactive Tomato Identification Guide

Happy July 4th Holiday! We’ve packed you a seasonally appropriate box of produce this week; more on that below.
With tomato season hitting its full stride this week, we present the following interactive textual Ven diagram to help you figure out which of the many varieties of tomatoes you get each week. Click on the links to see the seed catalog description of each variety.
First, identify the color of the tomato. We do grow several tomatoes that are bi- or even tri-colored, so I have given those their own category.
Red Tomatoes: If it is round, it is an Early Girl. If it is ribbed, it is a Costoluto Genovese. If it is oblong, it is a Roma.
Orange Tomatoes: Chef’s Choice Orange.
Pink Tomatoes: Brandywine.
Yellow Tomatoes: We grow two yellow tomatoes. Lemon Boy and Pork Chop.  Pork Chops have light green stripes that eventually turn orange when fully ripe.
Purple Tomatoes: If the tomato is round, it’s a Black Prince. If it is a beefsteak type, it is a Cherokee Purple.
Multi-Color Tomatoes: Ananas Noire and Berkeley Green Tie Die are both green and red beefsteaks. Green Zebra is a small green and yellow tomato. Berkeley Pink Tie is a dark red/purple tomato with green stripes. Striped German is a large yellow and red tomato. Solar Flare is red with yellow stripes.
Finally, we are also growing small trials of a number of other tomatoes this year, and any of those may find their way into your boxes. So if you get one that doesn’t match any of the above, email us a photo of the tomato and we will try to figure out what it is.
Thanks,
Pablito
