Once again SSE member, Amy Goldman has created a compendium that is practical, beautiful and inspiring centered on the world’s most beautiful fruit, the heirloom tomato. Amy adds detailed descriptions of the tomatoes themselves: “portraits” in both word and photograph of 200 heirloom tomatoes (culled from 1000 varieties tested in Goldman’s garden over the past 35 years). This book combines the tomato’s history, with expert growing tips, seed saving techniques, recipes and seed sources. The book pays homage to many original members of SSE who bred and introduced these wondrous fruits. Photographer Victor Schrager captures the beauty of the tomato with his sumptuous full color still lifes. Hardcover, 288 pages.
Seed Savers Exchange is a tax-exempt, 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of heirloom seeds.
