Tomato taste test results for California, surprise!
Someone posted this on the California forum. I notice that many varieties that get WOW recommendations on this forum for the country as a whole get just mediocre ratings under California growing conditions (low humidity, no rain at all in summer, hot to warm days and generally cool nights in the sixties, many areas have clay soil). I also notice Cherry tomatoes take all the top spots for taste. I know from my own experience that cherry and small to medium sized tomatoes do best, large tomatoes almost never produce much edible fruit, usually rot or get sun scald before they ripen. I just bought five varieties of the most highly rated tomatoes on this and other forums, I hope I am not disappointed.
