Found at my local crappy grocery store (Fine Fare, for those who know/care), these tomatoes actually look, smell and taste very good, for having been purchased in mid-March.

 

Now, I don't know if I'll be able to find them again, and this was the first time I'd ever seen them, but quite a nice treat.

 

Together they weighed at least a pound, and they were $1.99.

I wonder what someone with a huge closed system hydro grow house on the border with Canada is practicing for.

If that's as good as these tomatoes are, I'm all in.

No reason why they won't be good, certainly better than the barely-ripe stuff on the market, but the price seems like an outlier.
