Cracking and Pouching Resistant Tomatoes?
I have in the past grown tomatoes that cracked or had deep crevices and lumps all around (what I call "pouching" but please correct me with a better term). I know irregular watering or too much water can cause cracking, something I may or may not be able to control, depending on the weather, but I'm just wondering if there is such a thing as tomato varieties that resist cracking. As for "pouching" (please correct me again), how do you peel a tomato that has the peel buried in deep crevices, or even get decent slices from a lumpy tomato that's composed of poorly attached bulges and bumps? Again I'm wondering if there are tomato varieties that are more spherically or evenly shaped. I like heirloom taste, but I know some varieties ripen like a half-closed accordion. If the better shaped ones are all hybrids, so be it.
