The optimum pH for most vegetables including tomatoes is 6.5 with a range of 6.0 to 7.0---zone and climate are generally not factors related to pH

In my experience, low pH, too much water, and not enough sun are all contributing factors for too much acidity. OTOH, tomatoes grown in alkaline soil in the desert are much too sweet. This said, tomatoes are amongst the most pH tolerant veggies.
Best to try some tomatoes one year, then give them shade, or sun, or wood ashes or whatnot to adjust taste the next year.

As you can see from the above reference, tomatoes are not picky at all regarding pH. They will grow in a blueberry patch or a butter bean patch.
