Tomatoe flavour

Asked January 12, 2014, 10:58 PM EST

Hi, Do tomatoes taste better staked or grown onto the ground on top of mulch? I have been told they taste better on the ground and as I have always staked my tomatoes this does intrique me.
thanks for answering my question,

The short answer is "there is no discernible difference". Tomato taste is governed by soil type, water amount, water timing but mostly Sun assuming same variety.
