Heirloom tomato pictures can be quite an eye opener. The tomato you are used to seeing today was perfected in the 1940s as a more disease-resistant breed. Before this however, tomatoes looked very different. As the name would suggest, heirloom tomatoes have a long history. These yellow, green, orange and even sometimes ridged shapes are what our ancestors will have eaten. The taste is different, but still satisfying, and the only downside is that they have a shorter shelf life than modern tomatoes
