Many a times, it has have happened that tomatoes being brought from super market have a blank taste. For a long time, it remained a puzzle, but now researchers seem to have found the reason.
The research, which has been published in the Journal Science, has revealed that tomato breeders inject a chemical by which all tomatoes get ripe at one time, and as soon as they turn greenish red, they start picking up tomatoes.
This is the reason that tomatoes picked up from supermarket tastes bland. Ann Powell, who worked on the study, was of the view that while they were conducting the study, they noticed two genes, which added taste to fruits and vegetables.
When they tasted the same in uniform colored tomatoes, they found the genes to be inactivated. Harry Klee, who is an expert in the fruit flavor chemistry and is employed in the University of Florida, was of the view, "I promise you, if I gave you two tomatoes that were 10% different in their sugar contents, you'd be able to tell the difference”.
She further affirmed that it will be best for people to not to pick uniform colored tomatoes, as they will have uniform color.
