About this item

Tomatoes are a $2-billion industry in the United States. The commercially grown varieties are intended to ship well and have a long shelf life, but how do they actually taste? In the search for a superior alternative to bland and mealy grocery-store tomatoes, horticultural scientist Harry Klee and renowned taste researcher Linda Bartoshuk teamed up and embarked on a mission to find a specimen that will have you thinking you just picked it in your own back yard. Gatorbytes highlight for the intellectually-curious the world of innovative research happening at the University of Florida. Written by professional journalists, Gatorbytes feature the top research and preeminence work being conducted at the University of Florida, written in a way that’s easy to understand.
