Whatever these are, they are not good. At least the first one was terrible. All those ridges mean there’s extra skin surface area and the skin was like Naugahyde. The texture was like water chestnuts. I don’t recall how it tasted, I was too busy being alarmed by the crunchy texture. I did not eat it. I can find better, more appropriate things to crush my spirit if it comes to that. Eating a terrible tomato is just not worth it.
It is, however, the first one off that particular vine and so I will reserve judgment. And that’s hard for me to do.
