By MESCAL JOHNSTON In retail produce counters, Arkansas peaches and tomatoes are welcome offerings; but there are other items of interest. Grocery store prices are lower than they have been for watermelons, cantaloupes, perfect product may be a better buy. Healed growth cracks or growlli deformities, for example, cause trimming loss but usually do not affect flavor. It price for this tomato is low :nough, it may be a : good buy. However, hard spots, sunburned areas, bruises, and . unhealec cracks are usually a - S i g n , or cause of spoilage.- -Tomatoes that have these signs of poor quality to be a waste of money at any price. The ideal stage of ripeness [or tomatoes at the time they are bought varies with the sto rage they have received. From grocery store produce counters it is usually best to buy toma toes that are exactly as rip as you like them. From auc tions, fields or roadside mar kets, however, partially ripe to matoes maybe an acceptable choice. The reason: Grocery the 30 lo -VI pints oi canned or frozen stew tomatoes that a bushel (53 pounds) would yield is worth $10 to $17. The 4 to 10 pints that may be canned from a lug (20 pounds) of tomatoes would cost $4.50 to (5.50 for canned tomatoes. To prepare tomatoes for canning by the cold-pack method, wash toamtoes. dip in joilihg water for 30 seconds to loosen skins, then plunge intc eld water. Remve skins anc osen skins, then plunge into lot regulation canning jars am cover with hot tomato juice Place 1 teaspoon salt in quarts Cover sealed jars with warm valer to at least 1 inch above ops of jars. Bring water to a mil Process in boiling water 40 minutes for pints to 45 minutes for quarts. To freeze toamtoes, wash, remove stem ends, peel, and quarter ripe tomatoes, Cover and cook until tender, 10 to 20 minules, Place the pan of tomatoes in a large container of cold water to cool. Pack cooled tomatoes into plastic or glass freezer containers, leaving 'A inch head space for pints or 1 inch for quarts.

Also,- summer harvest time"-'-'" brings-'.'opportunity for quantity purchase Of many fruits and vegetables at open markets and roadside'stands. Tomato supply from southeast Arkansas fields is heavy this year, with more of this season's tomatoes having been shipped by the end of last week than during last year's entire harvest. Though the peak of the southeast Arkansas crop is near, homegrown tomatoes should be available through this month or longer. Price will vary .-widely with quality, quan- tity;-i-artd-30urce.-By comparison to oahned- tomatoes, however; fresh tomatoes can offer good values at fairly high-sounding prices. BUYING TOMATOES In Arkansas, the richest flavored tomatoes are available E. during local harvest season. This is because many of the tomatoes that- are sold locally have ripened beyond the pink stage that is ideal for shipping, providing the crisp texture and full flavor that, comes with the fully, vine-ripened fruit. Ideally, each shopper would store tomatoes are. usually-, refrigerated between ··· purchase and sale, while-those- sold at auction or open markets are often brought from field to market in unrefrigcraled trucks and sold without having ever been chilled. Desirable as refrigeration is for ripe toamtoes. it is not the best storage for partially ripened ones. Tomatoes that have been held at refrigerator temperature for several hours are likely to soften when returned to room temperature for. ripening.- -.
