Title:   Smith & Hawken 100 Heirloom Tomatoes
Author:  Carolyn J. Male
Publisher:  Workman Publishing Company, Inc.
Date Published:  April 1999

From The Publisher
Drippy, delicious, mouthwatering taste. That's what heirloom tomatoes are all about. From seeds carefully collected and passed down through generations, heirlooms reinvigorate the garden--and captivate the gardener--with their beguiling flavors, their wild variety of shapes and colors, and their enchanting histories.

100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden covers every facet of raising these nearly lost treasures, including when to plant seeds and transplant seedlings, ways to prevent foliage diseases, cultivation, propagation, and more.

Following the step-by-step how-to is a stunningly photographed and comprehensive field guide to 100 tried-and-true heirloom varieties, from the spicy Green Grape--the only true ripe-when-green cherry tomatoe-- to Omar's Lebanese--a superbly flavored pink beefsteak that can grow as large as four pounds.

Reviews From Booknews
