Taste is knowledge

IN SEARCH OF THE LOST TOMATO

According to the Plant Introduction Service of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) it alone has made a list of 10,000 different types of tomatoes obtained in the past by farmers around the world. But unfortunately, most, possibly more than 80%, are no longer found in seed banks and there are now few varieties of this tasty fruit that reach the consumer. The reason for this brutal decline is in the standardization of crops promoted in the main by the biotechnology multinationals. Thus, the hybrid tomatoes that are used today for intensive production have a high degree of genetic uniformity.
