Ripe Green Tomatoes

I recently enjoyed my first Grubb’s Mystery Green tomato, which remains green with a tinge of yellow near the stalk even when it’s fully ripe. (Pssst. For gardens at risk of theft it’s a handy way to fool passersby into thinking it’s not ready, thereby ensuring you’ll enjoy the food you’ve laboured over.)

I harvested a single red tomato from my other large plant a few weeks back, before I put the plant out of it’s misery, RIP. The red one was about the same size as the tomato below and had a similar texture . While it smelled delicious, the red one’s flavour was quite bland.

This green tomato, on the the other hand, tasted just as amazing as it smelled. I ate it drizzled with truffle infused olive oil, a sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese, and a pinch of fleur de sel (a natural, unprocessed salt).

Verdict in two words: Yum. Yum.
