3. You have to grow them, I'm afraid

Otherwise, the best tomato flavor comes from canned tomatoes that were picked ripe, not green and hard.

Ripening California cardboard tomatoes with ethylene gas changes their color but doesn't fully develop the sugars and other flavors. But you knew that.

You might try cherry tomatoes. They are often a lot better than the big ones. I've started using them for fresh tomato sauces and salsas. They're pricey so they don't get used too often.
