You Say Tomato; I Say Tomater

I am a tomato addict. I love all kinds of tomatoes. Therefore, I am always disappointed when I shop at the local supermarket, purchase what looks like delicious tomatoes until I get them home and cut into them, and there is little there but pulp. I have been doing that for years and bemoaning the plight of the picked-too-early tomatoes that end up in the grocery store. However, this summer, I was urged to shop at some local vegetableĀ stands where I was told that the tomatoes were tops. I shopped; they were tops. Excellent tomatoes–full size–with plenty of juice and tastiness. However, the next time I went into the supermarket, the tomatoes there looked just as good as those I had bought in the vegetable market, and they were just as good. What has the agricultural research learned that has produced tomatoes that taste like home-grown tomatoes? Whatever is going on, I applaud the improvement at Publix and Winn-Dixie and Save-A-Lot. I love the 21st century!
