Tomato expert Craig LeHoullier is the author of Epic Tomatoes: How to Select & Grow the Best Varieties of All Time
(Storey Publishing). He has trialed more than 1,200 varieties, and 'Green Giant'
, shown here, is one of his favorites. "The texture, similar to 'Lillian’s Yellow Heirloom' and 'Brandywine', presents plenty of succulent flesh surrounding the many small seed cavities. The intensity of flavor nearly overwhelms, and it is most similar to 'Sun Gold' in approaching perfection," he says.
