Ladies and Gentlemen todays fresh produce most commonly availabie in grocery stores has been manipulated in one way or another to appear more attractive to you the cosumer. Tomatoes packed when they are green are then sprayed with nitrogen to make them turn red, but they have no taste. These trends make it easier for the mass grocer to provide a wide variety for a long shelf life, but lack quality.
With all the modern technology improvements as well as the brilliant tool engineers in this world, we should all have quality fresh locally grown produce. Equipment and guidance for growing year round are readily available. Living in a warm region of the country will also help. Lighting is available that replicates the suns rays, and depending on your grow may not require heavy sun.
