Summary of Article: In response to what he sees as the drainage of taste from supermarket tomatoes, Dr. Harry Klee, a professor of horticultural sciences at the University of Florida, has attempted to bring back the "old tomato" taste through traditional breeding methods. He has created a hybrid of heirloom and wild tomatoes, which possess better genes for the flavor chemicals deficient in today's supermarket tomatoes. Because he chose traditional breeding methods over genetic engineering, this work has taken Dr. Klee many years, as he has had to map the genomes of nearly 400 varieties of tomato. His new tomatoes have versions of certain genes that produce more volatiles (which produce flavor) than the traditional modern, supermarket tomato. Dr. Klee has already made a version of his new tomato available to home gardeners, which can be had after a small donation. However, tasting panels showed many differences in preference across different groups (men/women, foodies/non-foodies, old/young), with one student even picking a supermarket tomato as her favorite.
