southdenverhoo Posted May 5, 2009 Share Posted May 5, 2009 We recently returned from a short trip to Charleston, just as it's closing in on time (in Colorado where the nights are still cold) to put out tomato plants. What, does the collective wisdom around here believe, is the best varietal for fried green tomatoes, a new favorite of my wife, courtesy this trip to a town where the dish is hard to avoid even if one wanted to? (We didn't want to) A google search turned up something on yahoo called "Southern Table" by Frank Stitt; he says "A freshly picked old-fashioned tomato variety like Atchison has that green leaf aroma that smells of the farm even when green." Unfortunately a google search for "Atchison tomatoes" is complicated (to the point of forcing my surrender) by the fact that an actress named Nancy Moore Atchison starred in the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes".... Any help will be greatly appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
