My favourite tomatoes to eat have very firm red skins and green seeds and so far, all the tomatoes I've grown have been disappointing taste-wise. Is there a particular type of tomato which fits my description? What should I buy? Or is it to do with conditions and/or when you pick them?



Cannot help with a name, but generally speaking taste is down to the variety. For example Moneymaker which is very popular has very little taste. Shirley is another old and tasteless variety too.

Hi I felt the same and stopped growing them for that reason, until this year and tried a variety called sweet aperitif. I saw it in a seed brochure but saw them in a local garden centre also. They are cherry though.

How do I say thanks?
