Chocolate Tomato

For those who love homegrown tomatoes and listen to John Denver, then here's a keeper. I haven't heard this song in years and it still brought a smile to my lips. Go listen while you slice the last of the season tomatoes.

BTW, below is a picture of a heritage chocolate tomato. (I don't know if it is a Cherokee Chocolate or a Chocolate Amazon variety.) Yes, you read that right. A chocolate tomato and it isn't even some type of GMO!
I was having tea with a friend today and she gave me a sample. I'll be saving the seed. The dark areas aren't bruises. There is a brown undercoat to the red skin. Really this is a rather intriguing piece of produce.

Have your chocolate and vegetable and eat it too!
