We grow a lot of organic tomatoes on Delvin Farms but by far one of the favorites among our family and customers alike is the Juliet Tomato. With a rich tomato flavor but sweet and small seeded, the part plum, part roma, part cherry tomato is so versatile in recipes.
Juliets are a meaty, firm textured tomato with just the right amount of sweetness to add them to salads, salsas, and spaghetti sauces. Eaten simply, we enjoy them sliced in half with a little salt or even with fresh mozzarella and basil. Like a mini roma, they are perfect on sandwiches or a toasted panini.
One of the first tomatoes we harvest in early June, Juliets are with us all summer and will be included in our organic CSA shares and all of our markets till early fall. From a growers perspective, we love the juliet because of the volume of tomatoes it produces on vigorous , indeterminate vines. Plants can grow in our high tunnels to lengths of 10,12,15 feet long and produce hundreds of blooms that turn into clusters of small grape size tomatoes. The fruits are crack resistant and generally all sized uniformly. The plants are the longest producing plants for us and will often keep putting on flowers and fruits well into the fall.
