The Heirloom tomatoes that are also known as heritage tomatoes are open-pollinated (non-hybrid) cultivation of tomato. These tomatoes have become increasingly popular and are more readily available in recent years.

The seeds of the Heirloom tomatoes are being saved for years and passed from one generation to the next. Today most of the tomatoes purchased from grocery stores are hybrids. These hybrid tomatoes are being bred to produce higher yields and for uniformity in colors and shapes. But its flavor is not up to the mark.

The Heirloom tomatoes are quite better in comparison to hybrid tomatoes. The Heirloom tomatoes are first known for their amazing flavor. In addition these tomatoes are available in distinctive shapes and in various ranges of colors like purple, green, orange and many more.
