Full Flavored Tomatoes - Knowledgebase Question

Do you have any tomatoes that have the flavor that we used
to enjoy before the acidity was bred out of them? The tomatoes that we buy in markets are so bland it's pathetic
and we are trying to find some that have the old fashioned flavor.

I'll bet you'd be happy with some of the heirloom tomatoes such as Brandywine, Quarter Century and Mortgage Lifter. These are by far the best tasting (in my opinion!), with a meaty texture, like a good tomato should have. Burpee's Heirloom Catalog offers nearly a dozen red tomato cultivars with the flavor you crave. Order toll free (800) 888-1447, or online at http://www.burpee.com
Enjoy!
