round tomatoesAlthough we grow a full line of tomatoes, Alderman Farms offer a beautiful Round Tomato product. Tomatoes are one of the most popular produce in the US and as such, Alderman Farms grows this type of tomato which is appreciated for their combination of sweetness and acidity. Once feared as poisonous, the tomato now adds its vivid color and delicious flesh to numerous dishes.

Like the potato, this fruit is a member of the nightshade family and is native to South America. Today's health-conscious cooks know that, far from being poisonous, the tomato is high in vitamin C and cancer-fighting antioxidants. After finally gaining acceptance as a food in Europe and the United States, tomatoes became an important part of many cuisines, especially those of the Mediterranean region. In Italy, they are used to make sauce for pasta, pizza and many other dishes. Sliced tomatoes are served with fresh mozzarella and fresh basil leaves, and the trio is sprinkled with olive oil. Other dishes that depend on tomatoes for their character include minestrone, gazpacho, ratatouille, Greek salad and tomato soup.

And, of course, tomatoes are a staple of New World cuisine, from the American South's fried green tomatoes to Texas's chili con carne and Latin America's salsa. Finally, sun-dried tomatoes and tomato sauce, puree, paste, and diced tomatoes are commonly used to flavor a wide variety of dishes. Since Round tomatoes top the list of produce that is best when eaten at the height of its natural season, Alderman Farms, Floridian fields are proud to offer these red beauties longer than most farms.

Our Round Tomatoes are available from early November - end of May.
