bitter tomatoes

AnnmfmAugust 16, 2012

This is the first year I have grown tomatoes from seed. I have 2 sweet 100 plants. Both came from the same seed packet. both are planted in the same area of the garden. I had added calcium before planting and the soil was amended with compost. My problem is that one of the plants is very sweet as you would expect. The other is extraordinary bitter! The flavor in no way resembles tomato. The fruit looks ripe and normal but is completely inedible. Does anyone have thoughts as to what may have caused this so I can avoid it in the future?

Any feedback would be very much appreciated!

I did a Garden web search, which I do when most problems a raise.
If it is rare thing, I will post so other can gain from it.
Here is what I found.
