Peach tomatoes have such a great natural flavor that they are fit for eating right off the vine. Their depth of sweetness is best eaten fresh, so they are not often used for preserves. They work beautifully in salads, or they can simply be drizzled with a bit of olive oil and sprinkled with chopped basil. They are also a nice complement to the dark, rich, slightly salty black Krim heirloom tomato. Store tomatoes at room temperature until fully ripe, after which refrigeration can slow the process of decay.
