Silvery Fir Tree tomato

I got the seeds for this tomato from two garden goddesses that I know. It is an heirloom variety we all read about in Barbara Kingsolver's book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle.

You can see it here pictured above a regular foliage tomato; it's quite beautiful, I think.

Now, I wonder how the tomatoes will taste.
