In the early spring when Indiana tomatoes are not quite ready, and we’re all craving a taste of summer, Tuttle’s brings in tomatoes from growers in the south. These come fresh to us directly from the grower. These tomatoes are grown in high tunnel greenhouses (like we have here at Tuttles) where the tomatoes are grown in the ground and a heater can be used to protect from frost. These tomatoes are a great tasting slice of summer.
Green tomatoes will continue to ripen after you pick them, so store in a cool, dark place and use quickly to avoid any softening of the flesh.
Green tomatoes are unripe versions of red tomatoes. they are firm and acidic, making them popular for use in relishes, savory pies, and perfect for fried green tomatoes!
