Shawn Thackeray has been growing his signature—and aptly named—“Wadmalaw Fuglies” at his farm on the island for 12 years. These are picked green for shipping to supermarket shelves. But don’t let their scarred looks fool you: Fuglies have a mild, sweet flavor and are well-balanced with acidity. Thackeray also produces a bounty of other tomatoes, including these colorful heirloom cherries.
