Heirloom Tomatos

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. !!!!
