Juliet grape tomatoes
Menu Group: Food
Section: Vegetables
Category: Tomatoes
Vendor: Rasmussen Farm
Lovely & delicious, small plum-shaped tomatoes. Fedco says: "With an engaging sweetness, they make good stewing tomatoes, excellent salad tomatoes, and, despite their juiciness, a tangy sauce with a diverse complex richness and full sweet tomato flavor. Lynn Sagalyn of Philadelphia reports that “Juliet is my favorite tomato for drying. Cut them in half, flip out the seeds and dehydrate…They are like tomato ‘raisins’—chewy and sweet to just eat, put on pizza, or add some red to a winter stir-fry.” Scout Proft of East Dorset, Vt., says, “Entertained by your description, but the plain truth is they are the highest yielding most versatile tomato out there—both for greenhouse and field use in all culinary ways. Period.”"
