This year’s tomato tasting platter features some of our favorite varieties of the season. Of note, those little Sungold sugar bombs are coming from a farm that is new to the 2014 tomato roster: Blue Egg Farm, a one-acre operation in Orinda. This is the first time a cherry tomato has ever appeared on the Oliveto tasting platter, but these are some of the best we’ve every tasted.
Not pictured but also of note & cause for celebration: the first official crop of Dirty Girls has arrived! This is an open-pollinated version of the Early Girl hybrid variety, painstakingly bred over the last five years by Joe Schirmer at Dirty Girl Produce in Santa Cruz. We are so excited to get a few prized flats of these extraordinary tomatoes and include them on the 2014 tasting platter.
