The taste of a tomato is determined more by temperature and smell than where they were bought. Supermarket toms are just as good as grocer-sold or home-grown if you buy ones that smell like tomatoes and serve them at room temperature. The thing to avoid is on-the-vine toms as what you are smelling there is the vine not the tomato.

I'm not totally sold on vine toms anyway. A great tasting tomato is a rare find I think. My local Greengrocer swears by Dutch tomatoes while I have no time for them.

Not a fan of any tomatoes unless they're cooked or in some kind of paste. Tongue

Option #1: "They are alright". Sour enough for me.

We grow our own. But I don't completely mind supermarket ones.

Homegrown tomatoes are ok, the only ones I really care for though are the orange ones.
 
Ian - cherry tomatoes are the ones that are more spherical, not oblong

My point is that they are not called that here. They are baby plum  tomatoes as far as I  can tell.

edit. Thanks Dean. Got there first.Smile
 
Weird, usually we in Canadia follow the Kingdom's naming conventions

I don't care for tomatoes to begin with but sometimes I'll make myself eat them in a salad.

BRUTAL.

I only learned to love tomatoes once I tasted homegrown (first from my father-in-law's garden, now our fledgling one).  Supermarket tomatoes are a non-starter.

Grapes aren't getting any coverage here.
Concords can't be beat, except for the damned seeds
Grapes are also best eaten frozen, unless you're having ambrosia.

I haven't had frozen grapes, but frozen blackberries are heavenly.  My aunt and uncle have bushes in their back yard, and they freeze pounds of them when they're ripe.
