The fine print:
- They were picked when they were barely beginning to ripen and ripened indoors.
- They taste better than most store-bought tomatoes, but nowhere near as good as they do in warmer weather.
- Cold nights gives tomatoes the same mealy texture that they get in the refrigerator.
- This tomato growing area is elevated, and under the light shelter of a large mesquite, giving it more frost protection than the rest of the garden.
