“Aunt Ruby” is Ruby Arnold of Greeneville, Tennessee, who grew this family heirloom for years. She got it from her immigrant grandfather. Eventually seeds were shared with other gardeners, and it has become a favourite of many. Slow Food USA has nominated it for the Ark of Taste program to help ensure its survival in a time of inexorable food industrialization. It is a beefsteak tomato of irregular shape that stays green when ripe. The green-yellow flesh, with occasional pink streaks, is very meaty and even buttery in texture. The flavour is rich, sweet, with a spicy edge. One bite of this outstanding tomato will demolish the idea that tomatoes must be red when ripe! Indeterminate vines must be staked or caged. 80-95 days.
