“As a special thank you for the miracle of our cookie venture, we invite our friends and family (you) to share a great experience with us… growing delicious heirloom tomatoes!” Founder Bart Greenhut said Monday. “What makes heirlooms great is that, unlike store bought tomatoes, they’re not hybrids. They’re open pollinated and lack the genetic mutation that sacrifices sweet flavor for uniform color.”
The Purple Cherokee Heirloom Tomato seeds can be found in thousands of cookie boxes which will be marked by a special green sticker, and distributed through a number of retailers including Whole Foods Market, Gelson’s, Mother’s Market and Bristol Farms in Southern California, and Andronico’s, Draeger’s, New Leaf and Molly Stone’s in NorCal.
“If it's inconvenient to fly 2,300 miles from Boston, or brave the cold in NYC, no problem!” Greenhut says. “Just send us a self-addressed, stamped ($.70), #10 envelope, and we'll send your seeds by return mail and include an extra packet for your efforts!”
