> I seem to recall having read last year that these tomatoes were the famous "flavr-savr" tomatoes that, for a variety of reasons, didn't catch on in the fresh market. I don't recall a market share percentage being quoted, but only that they were gaining in popularity because they were favourably priced (and, of course, had acceptable culinary characteristics, too).
The "flavr-savr" is not the GE trait in the paste tomatoes sold in England. I'm trying to get more info on this England data. Give me a few days as I will be offline till Sun. BTW, the GE "flavr-sarv" was a total flop as far as I'm concerned.
