Heirlooms' seeds are saved, preserved, and planted to create each new crop, sometimes for more than 100 years -- hence their name. Loved for their variety of shapes, colors, and textures, heirloom tomatoes taste best in late summer. Select those with shiny, taut skin -- and don't store them in the fridge.BLT Heirloom Tomato Tart
