Question by mary hopper: Why do the home grown tomatoes from Md and Va states taste so much better than the ones grown here in FL?
When I go to Md and Va ( where I grew up) for summer vacations the first thing I look forward to is the home grown tomatoes. They are wonderful just like I remember. Why here in FL are they bland and have the taste of hot house tomatoes like the ones in most grocery stores. I tried growing all the kinds and used the best soil, both shade and sun areas and still no flavor. I can’t understand why.

It has to do with the soil. Florida has sandy soil with very little organic matter which is what gives you flavor. I know my best friend moved to Florida and he says the strawberries actually taste like straw! LOL Try growing your own in a pot and use home made compost to add to the soil and I’ll bet you’ll see a major difference.
