I read that EM Champion is a very tasty tomato. Isn't the deteriorating taste at the expense of the high harvest? I have experienced that when a plant grows a lot, it has enough nutrients, water and sun, so it affects my taste. It is generally said that the best-tasting tomatoes are from growing in dry conditions (for example, Stekovics, which you certainly know). I will grow EM Champion in the cold bed this year - I already have seedlings with eight real leaves.
