Well... That's progress? Whatever happened to eating healthy? Everything grocery stores offer nowadays is all tampered with genetics. Even biological/organic items are not *natural* due to exposure to past treatements, such as pesticide residue on fields.

Gosh, I'm SOOOO glad they're finally here! I've been eagerly awaiting purple tomatoes for so long. What with all the scientists diligently working on AIDS research and alternative energy and global warming solutions, it seems like it's been forever!! I just read this past week that the ocean stock is on the verge of collapse and I thought for sure that would put off my purple tomatoes a few more years. Good to see SOMEBODY has their priorities straight!! Okay, seriously folks....could someone PLEASE grab the world and b**** slap some sense into it!!!

Any farmer will tell you that nature fights back , some times producing a Genetic Throw back right along with the regular crop. And this tomato comes from a previously POSIONIS VARIATY. I will NOT eat it!
