The Q&A Archives: sweet salad tomatoes?

Question: I planted a Big Boy salad tomato plant this spring and it has bloomed wonderfully... however when I went to taste a ripe one they are very sweet.... can you help me?

Answer: There are as many gardeners in favor of the flavor of Big Boy as there are gardeners who are disappointed in its taste. It has a reputation for being more sweet than acid; If you want a big solid meat tomato with the old fashioned tomato taste I would definitely recommend the Mortgage Lifter.
