How to Grow Sweeter, Juicier Tomatoes
Here’s how to grow your own tomatoes—and put your bounty to good use.
There’s nothing like a fresh-picked garden tomato. The versatile fruit is a key ingredient in salads, sandwiches, salsas, sauces and more. While most commercial tomatoes are bred for sturdiness during shipping, the best and most flavorful tomatoes are those sold at farmers’ markets, or picked right out of the garden. Luckily, with the right soil prep and a few pointers, anyone can grow sweet, juicy tomatoes—and cook with their bounty come late summer.
