The soil they are grown in and the amount of water they receive can
affect the taste. Old farmers used to taste the soil to get a
relative indication of the pH. If it was bitter they'd add lime to
"sweeten the soil". Oddly enough the best tasting tomatoes I've ever
grown were grown in cow manure compost. (No jokes please!)
Thank you for your response. My wife is using the cow manure compost,
and she uses soaker hose. We were wondering if it was some chemical,
due to the very poor soil where we live.
thanks for your help
