With the summer season here in full swing, the fresh, ripe tomatoes are everywhere. I have been in the market for a number of weeks and have been amazed at how many people have been buying them at the produce stands and farmer’s markets we work with.
I’m still amazed myself. My wife, however, has been having trouble getting her hands on any. When we get outside the city and up into the suburbs, it’s hard to find a place where they are still available.
When I get a chance, I am always on the lookout for some in the food-and-wine section of my local grocery store. Just recently I was at a wine shop when a woman came up to me and said, “There’s a lady who’s been buying a whole bunch of those things, she says they are good for you.” Apparently, she was a fan of Johnny Tomatoes.
The thing is, the only Johnny Tomatoes available at the time were the very popular and cheap variety. As a result, they were always sold out, and I was out of them. I did buy a few when they were on sale though. The difference between the standard and the premium variety is that the Premium variety has an average of three times the amount of tomatoes as the standard variety. So if you order a 12 oz.
is that a lot? You might need to order twice as many to get the same amount of tomatoes as the standard variety. Also, the difference between the standard and the premium is that the Standard variety has a thicker skin, so you can peel off the skin to get more tomatoes. The Premium variety has a thinner skin, so you can just peel it off.
For more information on this and the other ingredients in the premium variety, check out the Johnny Tomato website.
It’s a great variety, but the standard variety is not for you. If you order the standard variety, you might get the same amount of tomatoes as the premium variety. For an example on how to order the standard and premium varieties, check out the Johnny Tomato website.
My own personal view about tomatoes is that they’re not good for you, so keep them for your next visit.
Although I think that our tomatoes are delicious, I do not think you should eat them. Theyre not for the healthy. The standard variety isn’t too bad, but if you’re going to go to the trouble of growing your own, you should make sure you grow it right.
