Details

“There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”Although Darwin might be most famous for finches, he brought back other specimens from the Galapagos, including tomatoes. The plants and animals he found and passed on to specialists to study eventually helped form his theories in On the Origin of Species in 1859. This diverse gene pool of cherry tomatoes brings together birds and tomatoes. We like to imagine Isis, the Egyptian winged goddess, watching over our wildly diverse patch of tomatoes through the eyes of the Scarlet Tanager; a species which is becoming rare in our neck of the woods. Just like the many beaks of Darwin’s finches, celebrate diversity, evolution, and continued adaption with this mix of red, rose, orange, marbled, round, plum, pear, lobed, and unpredictably shaped cherry tomatoes.
