Heirloom Tomatoes

claireh | Feb 5, 2007 07:21 AM

In my local supermarket they have a big display of amazingly colorful heirloom tomatoes. I keep hearing about how good they are but have never tried one.
My questions are: is this a good time of year to buy them, or will I be getting substandard ones? (I live in North Texas)
Any recipe ideas? Is it best to keep preparation to a minimum and just have them in a simple salad?
Are they worth the fuss in general - will I notice the difference from a standard tomato?
Thanks in advance
