The Horticulture and Agroforestry Research Center and its team of researchers and staff host a taste-testing event of various tomatoes. The purpose is a case study to see what people prefer to eat.
At the event, samples of different tomato varieties were labeled and available for tasting. After trying a sample, the taster would then rate it on a score of likeability, from 1 to 5, with a 1 representing a poor-tasting sample in the opinion of the patron and a 5 representing an excellent-tasting sample in the opinion of the patron. These scores are then averaged and compiled into lists for HARC’s researchers to share with other growers.
Below are the taste test results.
