A Ton of Tomatoes! And Lots More

Tomato Peak Week

This has been a peak week at Chocolates and Tomatoes Farm for our tomatoes.

  • Our yellow and bicolor tomatoes had been slower to arrive, but they are here!

  • And all the other tasty tomatoes that were already coming in are still here.

We literally have more than 1 ton of tomatoes right now! Don't miss your chance to come out and try the fabulous Tomato Rainbow!

  • We still have openings in our Taste the Tomato Rainbow class on 8/8

  • At our on-farm market on 8/5 (7957 Hollow Road, Middletown, MD 21769), we will have the full rainbow available

    • Each color has a somewhat different taste

    • Just imagine how pretty your salsa could be with lots of different colors of tomatoes and how the depth of flavor could be enhanced
