They say that supermarkets won’t sell a good tomato–call me skeptical though.  About 10 years ago, I remember a similar set of articles about this GREAT tomato from Florida that was being embargoed, a true great winter tomato.  Well, if finally hit the market.  Thing was, it was a dud.  Not GREAT.  So me and all the ballers who did pay the extra money got nothing.  That’s why supermarkets have a hard time getting more money for produce.  Experience.
