Journal March 6, 2013
It is a case of trying different varieties of vegetables that you would not normally see in the produce section of your local market, or at any green grocer.
Continuing to grow fairly unusual vegetables I have started seeds for tennis ball lettuce, a Boston type grown by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello and Japanese Black Trifele tomatoes, a pear shaped Russian heirloom.
Why a Russian heirloom tomato is named Japanese Trifele is beyond me though.
