In 2018, tomatoes are being used in creative cuisines around the world in unique and delicious ways. And, as we once again enter the long-anticipated summer tomato season, we thought we’d take a more in-depth look at this incredible crop.
“Peas and carrots,” Farmer Lee Jones mused just a few days ago, “go together like a sock and a shoe.” That’s hard to debate and we quickly realized that his mind was on the best of the summer crops. So, we asked him to share what fresh vegetables he’d put on his 2018 summer crops list. The first? Petite carrots! The second? Mixed snow peas. Here’s more.
There is so much to share about fresh tomatoes that it was hard to narrow it down to just ten! But, here is our best attempt.
If Farmer Lee Jones had it his way, he’d create a top 100 list of the best summer crops but we’ve convinced him to narrow it down to the top 10! Here are his final choices, products we’ve shipped to top chefs around the country and world – and are now available for home chefs, as well.
Approximately 800 varieties of plants are grown at The Chef’s Garden. Because these varieties are available in multiple sizes, from microgreens on up, chefs actually have about 10,000 products to choose from for their unique cuisines.
