Planting and delivering to Red Gold. Weather(RAIN)can make harvesting not so much fun.

What's something important you keep in mind while planting, caring for, or harvesting your tomatoes?

Red Gold strives for freshness, quality, and the best tasting tomato products, from the canning process all the way to the consumers table. So, from planting to the delivering process, that same philosophy is on my mind. That philosophy has to start with the grower.
