What could you compare to a ripe tomato, fresh from the garden? Tomatoes are consistently one of the most popular edible garden plants, grown all over the world, yet most people have only tried a bland handful of the thousands of varieties available. For decades tomato availability was controlled by canning, shipping, and mechanical harvesting and processing needs, but now we're finally seeing a return to the flavors, textures, and versatility that made tomatoes so compelling in the first place.

I bought one plant of Jaune Flamme this spring as I had read that this tomato was known for great flavor. Now that I have been eating the first of the ripe fruits, I can say that it has outstanding flavor. Sweet and complex, not easily described, but the taste simply bursts in your mouth.

They are on the smaller side, but the plant is a large one and is so absolutely loaded with green tomatoes that I know I will have plenty.

So far this is my favorite tomato this year. I usually would rather grow hybrids than heirlooms, but I will have Jaune Flamme in my garden again next year for sure.
