Top 3 best tasting tomatoes of 2015 as decided by popular opinion!


Yellow tomatoes are historically not known for being all that flavorful. This is certainly not the case with Buttermilk Falls ! It's flavor is right up there with the best of the best. Fruits average 1/2 to 3/4 lb, and are produced in abundance. Plants are healthy without intervention, and stay under 5 foot making it a good candidate for even small gardens. A perfect combination of meat, juice and gel. Beautiful when sliced!

HISTORY: Unknown. I received seed for this variety from a fellow seed collector in France, known as "TomatoFrenchman". It came with no information (this is very unusual for serious seed collectors). An exhaustive web search revealed perhaps a hint of its origin, a farm to fork restaurant in New York. I have written to them, and as soon as I hear back I will update this history. In the meantime, it's not a stretch for me to see how someone might have 'accidently' taken a fruit, either from the actual garden or maybe it was served in a dish in the restaurant, liked it so much that they saved seeds from it. I'm curious to see what the restaurant has to say! [UPDATE: I did hear back from the head chef and she said that while they have been growing heirlooms for 10 years, they do not save seed nor have they "created their own tomato". I then got a second email and she said that it did look like a tomato that they had volunteer in the garden. Probably won't ever know the real history, but it was fun searching!]
