RE: Non garden tomatoes

A couple. many, years ago I got a store tomato that wasn't too bad. I think it was grown at the Plattvile power plant I have saved seed and am up to F6 now. When I bought it IT SMELLED LIKE A TOMATO. Since that time I have smelled tomatoes at the stores and have never smelled a good one since.

I still have a couple left. But when I run out I'll get the cherry or grape tomatoes at Sprouts.
