I'll alway have one or two a month just off the vine and eaten like an apple. I love tomatoes.
Heirlooms are more picky and more difficult to grow, but you'll get a true old fashioned product & taste.....plus you can save the seeds to grow the same again in the future. Anything homegrown has better flavor than store-bought.
As for tomatillos......yes, they make great salsa verde…...deeewishes
We grow some also. I eat them after picking them and washing them. Very tasty.
I never eat tomatoes or iceberg lettuce in chain restaurants. If they do not have Caesar, I pass. I pick them off if they come on something.
Never heard of someone bleeding after drinking water. I don't drink our city water. I will cook with it, but I don't otherwise really trust it, especially this time of year when the water is warm straight out of the tap unless you get the first bit that has been in your pipes. When the water comes preheated, I am skeptical about what might be living in it. Probably being paranoid since the chlorine stench is so strong probably nothing could live in it
That's the way with all fruit. I still remember 5he first time I ever picked a tree ripened orange. Tasted like the oranges I get from the supermarket, but then times better.
If you think bleeding from tap water is bad, you should see what my gi doctor found. Pink and purple polkadots all over my innards. He put them up on his picture-taking screen, and I thought I was looking at a bad piece of calico. He said he never saw anything like my picture or what to do about it. When I started drinking distilled water, I never had another problem unless I was out somewhere and forgot about the problem. It comes back in less than half an hour. Products made with tap water do likewise, whether it's cake, pasta, pie crust, rice, or mashed potatoes. If the skin covers the potatoes when boiling, I can eat the potato salad that results. Steamed items do no harm. There is one thing that can be boiled direct that is okay--pinto beans. There must be something in pinto beans that obfuscates the outer chemical valance of tap water OR changes the water. Bean burritos when I go to Taco Bell. And the mild or hot sauce doesn't cause any issues for some odd reason.
Tasteless bland tomatoes. Tell me about it. The worst offenders being The Netherlands.
The very small ones are halfway decent,
Our cherry toms growing always taste good and different from store bought.
In a greenhouse?
