I really dont want to complain....and hate posting this question.....yet...i want to learn more about the tomato so here it goes....

We are so thrilled to have eaten our very first ripe tomato from our garden....it was very pretty, large (11 oz) with no flaws at all....i was amazed at how pretty and meaty it was on the inside....i dont think i have ever had a meaty tomato before....

the taste though was really watered down.....not to much sweetness to it....we picked it yesterday after noon and ate it right away.....could that be the problem?...should we have waited and picked it in the morning?

we bought the tomato as a little seedling from our childrens school plant sale so all we know is it was labled Rainbow.....the plant is small yet has about 12 different size fruits on it....i did have to cut off some leaves yesterday that were looking a bit bad...other then that...its grown well...and then kinda stop growing in height and just kept putting on fruit....

we are saving the seeds....not sure if it was a hybred or not...the seeds are really tiny and there didnt seem to be very many.....

To me this tomato looks under ripe. Let the next one get really red and see if there is difference. Just my$0.02. By the way, Congratulations on your tomatoes! Very Happy

I have also read that applying a tablespoon of Epsom Salt around the base of the plant, just as the first flowers show, will improve the taste of the fruits. Somehow, it's supposed to sweeten them up.

They are very similar to peaches and nectarines, in that a bit too early, and not so much flavor. Some of the tastiest ones are actually over-ripe (or rotten on one end). I cut them in half standing in the garden, eat a bite of the good half. I have started picking earlier, and ripening on a shelf. Let them get soft to the touch. Not like anything you buy at the store. Those are bred to have thick skins and are yuck.

It is most likely just the variety. I will be interested how the others taste if the same then it's the variety for sure. I grew 4 different ones this year and they all tasted different.
