Local and Fresh—
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!
