How Tomatoes Lost Their Taste

Science Now— http://news.sciencemag.org/sciencenow/2012/06/how-tomatoes-lost-their-taste.html

 

The gene associated with the taste of tomatoes has been bred right out of them.  This is not the only reason that the tomato lacks taste, however. Most tomatoes are picked slightly green to ripen in the store; 80% of the fruit sugar is transported near the end of ripening and this is lost to most commercial tomatoes.  Wild tomatoes vary in color by having green shoulders and are not as striking as the red commercial tomato. Given the chance wild tomatoes may actually be sweeter than store bought tomatoes. Grow your own and give it a try.
