Growing Organic Tomatoes
Organic NZ Magazine: November/December 2001
Denise Mark describes exactly how to grow delicious, organic ‘Love Apples’.
Is conventionally grown to your taste?
Imagine a conventionally grown tomato, bred for long shelf life, growing in a plastic bag full of sawdust. Imagine the plant being fed an unrelenting cocktail of calcium, ammonium and potassium nitrates, potassium and magnesium sulfate and potassium sulfite. Imagine chemical sprays dripping from its leaves, killing the pests and diseases attacking it. Now imagine buying this tomato from the supermarket and eating it!
… Wonder why things don’t taste like they used to?
