We are receiving another 300 pounds of large heirloom tomatoes Saturday morning from Arkansas Times Publisher Alan Leveritt's India Blue Farm. Our first shipment Wednesday sold out in seven hours so we recommend that you come early.

The Carbons, Goldies, Ananas Noires, Kosovos will be on the floor by 10 a.m. These are large, high acid, 19th century varieties. Carbon is a nearly black tomato, Ananas Noire is green with red marbling, Kosovos are a large ox heart tomato and the Goldies are a deep gold color (not yellow) when ripe.

They are at various stages of ripeness and will continue to ripen right into the 4th of July. They are truly exceptional.

Just $3.99 a pound at our Cantrell and Mississippi and Bryant stores.
