“Wild Boar Farm’s Tomatoes are Beautiful and Flavorful. They’re Tomatoes You’ll Never Forget.”

The Office and Staff of Alice Waters at Chez Panisse

Red Boar: Tangy, distinctive “old fashioned” taste I forgot I loved as a boy 50 years ago! Black and Brown: Heavy producer. Much tastier than the hybrids farmers in the Southeast produce. Green fruits picked right before the first frost still ripened and were delightful with Thanksgiving dinner. Porkchop: Pretty yellow/green. A smaller, slightly sweeter fruit. “Lip smackingly wonderful!”

I wanted to pass along a few comments regarding my growing experience with your tomatoes. I ordered ALOT of your seed last year. I grew about 10 of your varieties in all. The seed germination was good. All of the varieties grew into beautiful healthy plants. They all produced well despite the challenging weather we experienced. My customers (mostly chefs) were very impressed with the tomatoes. You’ll love this, I had several chefs actually walk the boxes of tomatoes around to all of the customers to “show them off”. They would call their entire kitchen staff out to see the selection of tomatoes. As a sure sign of satisfaction the chefs ordered larger quantities of tomatoes every week. I made sure to let them know that these tomato varieties were available due to years of hard work by you. I consider your tomatoes a big key to my successful season. Keep up the good work.

Your tomato varieties are bursting with exceptional flavor that parallel their wonderful color. I’ve grown Wild Boar tomatoes in my St. Helena California garden for the past two years. They grow vigorously and produce extremely well.

We wait all winter for Brad to return to our local Farmers’ Market with his wonderful and frequently changing assortment of Wild Boar Farms’ tomatoes. When he does, each week we get a bunch of whatever he says is at its peak of flavor, add some of all our other favorites, and spend the next week working our way through the batch. i average almost a pound a day of his tomatoes until the last of the crop is finished in the fall, and then manage to get through the winter by adding a few frozen Early Girls to each batch of my spaghetti sauce until I run out. Then all we can do is wait for Brad’s return. Thank Heaven he always does!

I grew a half dozen different Wild Boar varieties in my Berkeley garden in 2009 and they performed exceptionally well. Vigorous plants, with some unusual colors and shapes and excellent flavor.
