Mushroom basket is solid red with a really funny shaped, with kind of a point at the bottom and folds running up the sides. Maybe they named it because it looks kind of like a basket?
It turns out to be the weakest flavor tomato I've ever tried, but has a very nice texture. Almost like the tofu of tomatoes: you add what you want and it takes on the flavor.
I put some chunks in a pita with a bit of tahini on it, and the tahini soaked in; the flavor combination was really nice, as long as I didn't use too much tahini. I bet it'd work well with soy sauce (very small amount), or baba ganoush. Good on toast with salt and pepper on it.
It's also the softest tomato I've ever met. I tried to pick one of the firmer ones from the crate at the farm stand, but it still got bruised soft spots just from being carried home in a loose bag with some other tomatoes. I bet it would not last more than a week even in the fridge without starting to get too soft, and it's so fragile!
They only had it at the market last week, and I didn't see it again this week. I don't remember seeing it before, either. Perhaps it has a very short season.
