'Uncle ray' yeung heirloom tomatoes
Heirloom Tomatoes from Ray Yeung Farm located in Yolo County have started! ‘Uncle Ray’ experienced a late start due to a strong winter causing planting delays. Ray Yeung tomatoes are highly praised by local chefs for their intense flavor, unique sizes, shapes, and colors. Ray’s tomatoes are ‘open-pollinated’- able to reproduce itself from seed.
By definition an heirloom tomato must have been introduced more than 50 years ago and have a history of its own- for example, the origin of the popular Brandywine tomato is credited to the Pennsylvania Amish community and is named for a local river. Their flavor profile is generally less acidic than red ‘backyard’ type tomatoes, resulting in a milder flavor.
We offer a mixed ‘Toy Box’ of local heirlooms as well as the individual varieties packed in 10# single layer cases. Yeung Farm has over two dozen varieties during the season, which usually runs from now through October. We are now offering Pink Brandywine, Black Prince, Carolina Gold, Black Pineapple, Oxheart Striped, Patty’s Striped Beefsteak, Green Zebra, Banana Legs, & Purple Cherokee to name a few. 10# single layer flat. In addition, we are also stocking Shady Lady True Vine Ripe Tomatoes in a 20# case- perfect for sandwiches, burgers, soups, and sauces.
Enjoy the harvest!
