6 Years of Tomato Testing
Assisting newer gardeners in choosing generally agreed” best” tomatoes.
Assisting experienced gardeners looking to find new or different varieties of tomatoes.
Assisting Nurseries and Growers in their selection of tomato varieties most satisfying to customers.
Over 300 Taste-Testers have participated in our Taste-Testing sessions over a period of 6 years
Taste-Testing sessions have been with a variety of groups including:
-Oak Park Crop Swap
-Sacramento & Elk Grove Vegetarian Societies
-Sacramento Slow Food
105 Tomatoes have been taste-tested thus far with 35 new tomatoes last year
Tomatoes used for taste-testing are home garden grown with selected market tomatoes used for comparison
All tomatoes for taste-testing are from locally available “starts”rather than seeds.
