Taxi tomato

A few years ago I grew a yellow variety of tomato and could swear it was taxi, but didn't write it down. So I bought a packet of seeds and grew these tomatoes two years in a row. And for two years, these tomatoes have given me awfully bland flavor. Thumbs down.

Your yellow mater in this photo looks like our "yellow perfection". It tastes really good though. It got ripe early and has produced a lot of fruit. It doesn't really "crack" but does make little ring scabs at the top. I think it may be an heirloom.

Yep, it is... http://vegvariety.cce.cornell.edu/mainSearch/detail.php?ID=2933&filterBy=&filterBylocation=&filterByfrostfree=

I disagree with the guy who says they're bitter.

I grew some taxi this year and wasn't overly impressed. The other yellow/orangey variety I grew was called Bursztyn and was sensationally delicious!
