Here in Florida we all know how hard it is to find a decent fresh tomato.
Sure, in winter you can get them at the various farmer / green markets. But otherwise, it's tough.
Until now, the best I could find in, say Publix, were the "Ugly" tomatoes.
But the other day, I came across something new at my Publix.
The little label on each tomato showed:
I tried these just for kicks, even though they looked similar to the usual hothouse suspects.
Wow. Really really good. Real taste and texture inside. Closest thing I've seen to a fresh northern tomato in a long time.
Their website goes to great lengths to detail how these are most definitely NOT gassed, not hothouse.
Best part? Unlike the often $4/lb Uglies, these were just $1.99, about the same the lousy ones typically go for.
