Passion for flavorful tomatoes runs deep

When asked what he thought of Tasti-Lee, Absolessian lavished praise on the variety, noting its deep red color and robust flavor.

I have to admit — I went back for seconds and thirds at the Deardorff booth because of the great blend of flavors.

With technological developments such as Klee’s and Scott’s, tomato flavor can only grow.

And I’m sure I’m not the only one who can’t wait for some of these new tomato varieties to hit the market that should have even better flavor.

What's your take? Leave a commetn and tell us your opinion.

I dont know why you bother to write about a supermarket tomato like the junk Monsanto puts out when we already have tomatoes that taste fantastic. Theyre called Heirloom Tomatoes...(ok- some hybrids are good tasting too.) They(supermarket tomatoes) will never taste like a home grown tomato because they aren't, they are built for only 2 reasons 1)Shelf life 2)Transporting. There are any one of 14,000 different Heirloom open polinated Tomato vareties that are available fresh from small growers at local Farmers Markets, as seed from Seed Savers Exchange,, tomato growers supply, to name only 3 out hundreds of seed sources.
