American Heirloom Tomatoes in Tokyo

We harvested these lovelies this morning from the greenhouse. Started from Project Grow seeds, we had no idea what to expect. Heirlooms, like my Brandwines, tend to have great names and good flavor. These are no exception. The larger of the two (pictured above) are called Snow White, and have a soft, sweet taste. They're about the size of ping pong ball. The other variety - Lemon Drop - is much smaller and always makes me think of a gooseberry when I look at it. The flavor, though, is pleasantly smooth.
