heirloom tomatoesThe University of Arkansas at Monticello’s lovely bed and breakfast, the Trotter House, offers “Tomatoes at the Trotter” on Tuesday, July 2, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door for $25. The meal is being prepared by Chef Doug Spharler of Aramark Food Services and will feature a full tomato dinner, as well as an heirloom tomato tasting.

Heirloom tomatoes have been a favorite for foodies over the past few years andheirloom tomatoes2 I’ve often wondered what makes a tomato an heirloom. To be considered an heirloom variety, the tomato must be an open-pollinated traditional variety that’s at least 50 years old.

Also on the agenda for the evening is trotter house1speaker Leah Forrest Sexton, who will discuss her recently completed thesis on the historical impact of the pink tomato industry on southeast Arkansas.

To reserve tickets or if you’d like more information, give Jill Curtis of the UAM School of Agriculture a call at 870-460-1091.
