Local and Fresh—
Plum tomatoes


        A sweet red fruit with a meaty interior,
the plum tomato is named for its shape and is not a relative of the plum! Bred for use in sauces, they can be served raw or cooked. San Marzano tomatoes are a popular variety.

        Look for even coloring with no green
near the stem. A fully ripe plum tomato will be dark red with a firm texture. Avoid tomatoes with soft-spots or a mushy feel.

        Always store tomatoes in an open bowl or on the counter at room temperature, never in the refrigerator!
