Ugly Tomatoes

What better way to honor Fashion Week in NYC, than to showcase some really ugly tomatoes? These particularly hideous heirloom specimens were grown at Taft Farms, a 200 acre, family-run farm in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Friendly and fascinating Farmer Dan doesn’t even expect to sell these, so he just cuts them open for customers to try. Next thing you know, you are searching for the most monstrous-looking ones in the pile to bring home.

It’s too early to pass judgment on the Spring 2011 collections, but I as far as tomatoes are concerned, these misshapen models represent the absolute pinnacle of good taste.
