Perhaps because now that I am truly old my taste buds are worn out. It's either this or the new species of tomatoes and especially watermelons DO NOT taste the same. At first I thought, wonderful, seedless watermelon. But they have almost no flavor. I can only guess, but it must be a part of the process to make them seedless that makes them tasteless. The same thing with perfect shaped fruit and vegetables. Beautiful to look at but a distinct loss of flavor. Is there any way to get seeds for the old fashioned vegetables and fruit?

Hi babakool,

It is not your age nor are your taste buds worn out. The flavor diminishes when fruit and veg are 'messed' with.

The links NordicFletch provided are perfect. I use seedsavers more often than not.

Thank you NordicFletch.

All the best to you both,
