I bought ugly tomatoes because they did not appear ripe, I always try to buy green tomatoes to ripen at home, that way they taste picked. I doubt you can buy green tomatoes in the North, down here they fry them & when done right, they are heaven. Whole foods used to have a BLGT sandwich at their lunch/dinner counter that my friend, Amy & I would go to eat when we got together, that sandwich was so worth the 10 dollar price. Ugly tomatoes are juicy, but taste funny to me. But they sure were pretty in the bowl. I thought they’d like to be labeled pretty until I ate them Ugly Tomatoes up.
