The Los Angeles Times asks this gripping question today, in a story about, yes, giant tomatoes, now available from Burpee.

Burpee is also offering a Baby Boomer tomato variety that will bore you to death and only grows if you play it Studio 360.

I usually love info graphics like this, but this guy either has it out for tomatoes or he doesn’t get it. Tomatoes have more umami (tastiness) than every other fruit on there, and the last time I checked, green seedless grapes didn’t have much in the way of flavour. This would have been much cooler if a bunch of peoples’ opinions were aggregated and average positions where determined for each of the fruits.
