a) one should not refrigerate tomatoes, but should store and serve them at room temperature.
b) heritage, or heirloom tomatoes exist, and are mild and sweet in flavor.
I don't care much for tomatoes. I will sometimes put them in a dish to get just a hint of tomato flavor, but I rarely actually eat the tomato. And, it is rare that I actually cook with tomatoes. Part of it is that I don't like cutting them. Weird, I know, but that means I usually buy roma or cherry tomatoes, and they go bad because I don't use them quickly enough and they go bad. Storing them on the counter
