Acid in tomatoes.

First look at this... acid base chartThen look at this and this.So, there is acid in tomatoes and sugar and the taste is due to the acid vs. the sugar.It looks like the Celebrity and the Rutgers are good bets for an acid tomato that tastes the way you remember.Maybe Caspian pink may be another good one.Just remember, 1 is acid, 14 is alkali, 7 is base, right in the middle, like Milk. We don't want our tomatoes to be like milk.

All around tomato for fresh eating, preserving, and sizable harvests, I think its hard to beat Celebrity.

'Rutgers' and 'Amish Paste' have a very acidic taste.
