It's Perennial Love!

Today tomato week continues with a very special treat...a short film that celebrates our passion for tomatoes by featuring passion and tomatoes. Perennial Love is perhaps the first romantic melodrama with an all-botanical cast. There's romance, drama, mystery...and plenty of lycopene. Tomatoes in love! We hope you enjoy it. But be forewarned...there was too much romance to fit into a single reel. So you'll have to come back tomorrow to see the exciting, dramatic, and saucy conclusion! (You'll also get a fantastic recipe for tomato sauce.)

To watch Perennial Love and for more from Maria Rodale, go to
