Thomas Jefferson first mentions tomatoes in Query VI of his Notes on the State of Virginia: “The gardens yield muskmelons, watermelons, tomatas, okra, pomegranates, figs, and the esculent plants of Europe.” Jefferson recorded planting tomatoes all of the years that he kept his Garden Kalendar (1809-1824), and included them in his chart of vegetables sold in the markets in Washington, D.C. Tomatoes commonly appear in the Jefferson family recipe collections. Two varieties Jefferson planted most often were the “dwarf” and the “Spanish,” which was described as “very much larger than the common kinds”.
This collection includes 16 oz. each of Summer Tomato Salsa (a blend of fresh tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, and spices), Peach Salsa (tree-ripened peaches, jalapenos, and spices), and Apple Salsa (apples, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, and cilantro). Made in Virginia.
