The good stuff
Oddly shaped and all sorts of colours, heirloom tomatoes are grown from seeds that farmers have saved from a good crop or are sown by “open pollination”, meaning naturally, by birds or air. This usually means they’re far more natural than other types of tomatoes.
Rich in potassium, they help balance the effect of sodium on blood pressure and promote vasodilation or the widening of blood vessels, which decreases blood pressure.
How to eat?
These tomatoes are often more dense, which makes them perfect for slow-roasting or adding to soups. Try this roasted tomato and basil soup recipe.
