Orange Strawberry Heirloom Tomatoes

I found these at our local farmer's market, heirloom tomatoes that are orange when ripe shaped like strawberries.

Our family likes - well, anything strawberry so finding a favorite vegetable with a strawberry hint was bound to end up in my shopping bag.

This tomato reminded me of some of the less common recipe ingredients one sometimes finds in old recipe books. 

Eric Meusch, Meusch Farms, said this was an heirloom variety from Baker Seeds. He grew them because they have a lot less seeds and an interesting flavor, which they do. Eating one is more like eating a peach than a tomato.

I was going to use these in salads but they never made it to the bowl, so much easier to eat them like an apple.

Have you tried an orange strawberry heirloom tomato?
