Vermont journalist Estabrook traces the sad, tasteless life of the mass-produced tomato, from its chemical-saturated beginnings in south Florida to far-flung supermarkets. Estabrook looks at the tomato’s ancestors in Peru, grown naturally in coastal deserts and Andean foothills and concludes this thought-provoking book with innovators trying to build a better tomato.
