I just wanted to let you know that I bought some of your lovely tomatoes at Whole Foods the other day, specifically because they were packed in cardboard, rather than plastic. Well done for making the change, and hopefully encouraging other growers. And the tomatoes were delicious.
Just a quick note to say that I picked up a box of your yellow/orange tomatoes at Whole Foods in Cambridge MA a few weeks ago and absolutely loved them. They were so sweet; I was eating them like candy. I went back a few more times to get more until they were no longer available. I can’t wait until your next crop!
Thank you very much for growing beautiful and delicious, organic cherry tomatoes! They are truly marvelous and we also are so happy that you provide them in cardboard baskets. We purchased them at Cornucopia Market in Carmel, and hope there will be some more available when we return to the market later this week.
Just purchased yellow tomatoes at Whole Foods. They are incredible. Best I have ever had. So good and sweet they defy description. Kudos to you!!!
Had to stop preparing dinner for a minute to thank you for the awesome little tomatoes I found in Whole Foods Tucson. I’m a gardener myself, and I know how long it takes to pick a pint of tiny tomatoes carefully. Let alone grow them!! Hugs to whoever gathered up the baskets I bought.
I buy your tomatoes at Whole Foods in Dallas, TX. I choose to shop there and not at another very fine and closer grocery store whenever I need tomatoes because they are, by far, the best tomatoes I have ever eaten. Thank you so much for providing such a delicious treat.
I am delighted that your organic sweet golden cherry tomatoes have reappeared this summer in my Mollie Stone’s Market in Palo Alto. They are delicious! And wonderful that the beautiful cardboard box containing them is recyclable, but the box is so sturdily made I wish there were some way you could collect them and reuse them. I hate to consign them to being mashed to pulp!
Betty - We can’t reuse the boxes, unfortunately, due to food safety concerns. But, we hope that our customers can find a (re)use for them around the house! - The Durst Team
I bought your baby tomatoes at Whole Foods and they were the sweetest, most delicious tomatoes I have eaten since my childhood in Los Angeles, growing up in the 1950’s - when all fruits were vine ripened before picking! It was heaven back then!
I grew up in farm country in Wisconsin and was used to eating really good tomatoes, corn, and strawberries. I haven’t had a decent tomato since I left 50 years ago…until I had your organic tomatoes that I found in Whole Foods in Sarasota Florida. They were sweet and delicious and reminded me of how good produce should taste. I hope they continue to sell them here.
I purchased a pint of your black tomatoes and immediately texted my family and friends to rush out and get them, too. Just bought another pint today! Farming is hard work. You are very appreciated. Thank you for growing such delicious food.
I was picking up my um-teenth basket of your Durst baby red tomatoes when I realized your website was on the basket. I wanted to THANK YOU for taking such great care in planting, harvesting, packaging and distributing such an amazing product! Today I bought two more baskets of tomatoes, and by the time I got home, I was half way through the first basket. I know virtually nothing of farming or ranching, but as I put each tomato in my mouth, I am grateful for all the steps it took to get your product to my store, Raley’s in NW Reno, NV. Thank you again to your whole team! I have deep gratitude for all your care and efforts!
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Durst:
I just finished a small box of your little tomatoes, and as I was breaking down the box for recycling, I was overcome by the desire to thank you for helping find a way around the prevalent, disastrous, use of plastic in our country. The little tomatoes were very tasty and getting rid of the packaging was guilt-free.
These are the best tomatoes I have ever eaten - spent most of my life in NJ with access to many varieties of tomatoes and whether slicing, grape, cherry, or whatever, I’ve never had such tasty, sweet, tomatoes. Keep sending us your awesome tomatoes. Thanks so much.
I am 65; 100% Italian making tomatoes part of my DNA. The Durst tomatoes I recently purchased could very well be the best I have ever tasted.
Deborah and Jim,
I LOVE your produce so much I had to say thank you! The cutest container ever for those GREAT organic mini cherry tomatoes make me smile! I only reach out to companies that have great products and in your case, great packaging!! I'm having fun reusing the cute little cartons. I'm eating a handful of the tomatoes as I write this. It is hard to save them for my salads, they are so good.
Keep up the good work and thanks to all at Durst.
Dear Durst folks,
My husband and I recently bought a pint of orange cherry tomatoes from Gus's Market in San Francisco. I am just writing that in addition to enjoying the delicious tomatoes, I really appreciated that they came in a cardboard container as opposed to the green, unrecyclable plastic.
Kudos to you! It's the little daily things that add up, and I appreciate this detail and will definitely look for your tomatoes again next time I'm at the store.
At age 73 this is a first: a fan letter about tomatoes!
Your Hungry Hollow organic cherry tomatoes purchased at Raley’s Market here in Roseville (Sacramento area) are the best I have had in years. Each one pops with juice and flavor. I originally bought a box because they were on sale and looked good. Today I made a special trip back to the store to buy 3 more boxes because of their superior taste. Another thing I appreciate about them is the thin skins that pop so easily when eaten. It seems that more and more cherry type tomatoes have thick skins and get “chewy”……not what a tomato should be.
The tomatoes are on the counter, in my inherited Waterford crystal bowl, to admire before being eaten…..which happens throughout the day, they are a healthy delicious snack. Looking at them today, I decided I need another trip to the store for a few boxes to roast.
Keep them coming!
Hello Durst Family,
My wife and I bought three pints of your little tomatoes yesterday, here in Venice California, and we LOVE them. They are simply the most flavorful little tomatoes we have ever had. (And that's big praise coming from an Italian!)
Thank you and your farm for such lovely produce!
