Actually they could grow any variety that you grow in the ground they just choose to grow different ones. Most of them look for high producing varieties that are also resistant to many diseases and fungus and they will trade taste for those things
Amen...it’s about this time of year I start getting a real hankering for homegrown tomatoes.Pssh....People BEG me to sell jars of salsa to them for $5/jar!! I had 87 jars of salsa last summer. Plus, there isn't a store bought tomato on the planet that can come close to the taste of home grown.....
I have grown them in the ground and grown them hydroponically - I can't tell a difference in taste as long as it's the same variety. Each variety tastes different. My favorites are Pink Brandywine and Cherokee Purple.
Actually if they are growing them correctly hydroponic's produce a way better tasting product.
Yep... you can adjust the flavor by adjusting the nutrients... Tomatoes grown for the distant market need a tough skin and orange color.... A taste test, isn't on the menu...Actually if they are growing them correctly hydroponic's produce a way better tasting product.
The problem is they are adding anywhere near the right minerals and nute's in commercial grows.
I'll choose properly grow hydro's over dirt gown every single time.
