These little beauties are priceless! And that is one reason toms like these are not found in restaurants and stores. But if monetary values were necessary, here is the math:
Many heirlooms yield only about 10% of that of a common red variety, natural or gene tailored. So a $2.50/lb store price becomes $25/lb.
Costs to grow on a small organic basis easily twice that of Monsanto Blessed industrial farming. Now our tomato is $50/lb. !!!!
