I tasted almost every variety and there were so many great tasting ones that I can only remember the one sole tomato that tasted really terrible.

Copia, hands down. Sour, weird off-flavor and even with a liberal sprinkling of salt it tasted awful. Deceptively attractive to the eye but very rough on the taste buds.

Now I know why there was so much hype written about this variety. It needs all the hype it can get to disguise the fact that it looks much, much nicer than it tastes.

One last word of farewell, Dear Master and Mistress.

Whenever you visit my grave,

say to yourselves with regret

but also with happiness in your hearts

at the remembrance of my long happy life with you:

"Here lies one who loved us and whom we loved."

No matter how deep my sleep I shall hear you,

and not all the power of death

can keep my spirit

from wagging a grateful tail.
