Tomatoes with no taste? Improve taste with a simple trick


Tomatoes in supermarkets are not what they should be. We all know that. There may be few goods ones here and there, but you will never be able to find a taste that may be close to those grown in your garden or on various organic farms. But you may improve the taste of purchased tomatoes. Here is a fairly simple trick how you can do that. We shall also focus on the reasons that cause the plain taste.

Why do purchased tomatoes taste like nothing?

There are several reasons. The first one is that tomatoes are not ripe enough when they reach supermarkets. They are plucked too early to make sure that they last during transport.The second reason may be various chemical treatments which prevent tomatoes from tasting right. Unfortunately, some tomatoes are genetically modified. Yes, you encounter those too and they are often very low in polygalacturonase.
