West Coast Tomato Growers, Oceanside, Calif., has switched back to one of the original tomato varieties that the company used to produce when it was known as Harry Singh & Sons, said Aaron Quon, greenhouse and vegetables category director for The Oppenheimer Group, Vancouver, British Columbia, which markets the product.

“It’s a different variety from what we used last year,” he said. “It’s yielding better-tasting fruit with longer shelf life.”
