Health Kick Tomatoes:
I just had a call from a customer wanting Health Kick Tomatoes. Supposedly lots more Lycopene than other tomatoes; and bigger, etc than regular Romas.
We grow over thirty types of tomatoes…mostly heirlooms, and ethnic varieties. But a few hybrids.
I did a quick search and they are a hybrid; non-GMO (genetically modified) variety, and been around for awhile.
I’m a big fan of San Marzano. I do grow a few plants of Romas. But I like San Marzanos better. They are larger, and meatier with better flavor, in my opinion.
Does anyone know of any Health Kick Tomato plants available in the SoEast TN area for my caller?
Has anyone done a comparison between the Health Kick and the San Marzano?
I was wondering if the Health Kick is a spinoff of the San Marzano, as the descriptions that I read did not say what it was a hybrid from.
