The first time I saw Heirloom tomatoes was 1991. Bradley Ogden, a California Chef was promoting a new book, "Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner" . I would never get too excited about visiting Chef's but this guy brought 2 cases of assorted heirloom tomatoes . The exotic colors, shapes, and flavors changed my life . 2 years later I had a small farm in Kendall and was growing and selling them by the case .
