You Say Tomato, I Say CampariAll the tomatoes at Eurofresh Farms in Willcox are vine-ripened, unwaxed, free of genetic modification and pesticides. Last year, Eurofresh grew 170 million pounds of tomatoes. I recently tasted a campari tomato, which was like biting into tomato nirvana. You can find campari tomatoes at Sprouts, Albertsons and Safeway. Check out the Web site to learn more about all their products.
