Did you know these 3 things about tomatoes?
- Tomato flavour comes from a mix of plant chemistry and garden variables such as temperature, sun, rain, and soil type.
- The cold air in the fridge blocks the tomato flavour. Word to the wise: keep your tomatoes out on the counter if you want them to taste good and retain their wonderful texture.
- Pretty much all almost all tomato varieties are red although other colours are possible including green, yellow, orange, pink, black, brown, white, and purple.
