I had no idea what they were talking about, I thought they were referring to a specific variety, but they presented me with […]

  Los únicos jitomates que yo conocía era el roma y el jitomate de bola, como le conocemos en México al que se usa para los sandwiches.  Luego un caluroso día de verano hace como 10 años uno de nuestros amigos muy orgullosamente nos mostró su jardín donde tendía plantados una cantidad extraordinaria de diferentes […]
