Disappointed by heirloom tomatoes

Chatsworth | Aug 21, 2013 05:49 PM

Every summer I get sucked in by the heirloom shtick, and always regret it. I live in a place that is made for wonderful seasonal produce, including tomatoes, but my experience with the heirlooms is that they are mealy, over-ripe, fruit-fly ridden and tasteless. Am I missing something? (I'm talking about buying from well established organic farms who otherwise have amazing produce.)
