I find it hard to believe that a Tomato could be tasteless if grown organically and harvested ripe from the bush. Even highly hybridized ones.
So to test my theory I selected a pretty tasteless Coles variety tomato, from here on in known as 'my shoppe tomato'. I saved the seeds as recommended on the seed savers web site.
Planted then into seed raising mix about 4 weeks ago and I have just transplanted them into the garden this morning.
So what do you think? Will they have taste or still be the same tasteless tomato I bought from the shoppe.
I'm thinking they would have been field grown without any other varieties around to cross pollinate with. Therefore they should come true to type, but I will have no way of knowing if they are the same as to original parent plant or some what different to the original parent plant.
Cheers and happy experimenting
