Tomatoes Have White Meat Inside

Q: Why would my tomatoes have white meat inside? My opinion is that the plants are GMO and that’s causing this anomaly. My grandmother’s tomatoes had amazing sweetness and flavor. 

A: There are no GMO tomatoes commercially available to cultivate, either by gardeners or farmers. Modern tomatoes have been improved by breeding better plants, as has been done for hundreds of years, not by gene transfer.

Heirloom tomatoes might have tasted better but they were also more likely to get diseases and have poor crops. I believe high temperatures in summer explain why you had tomatoes with white interiors. This is a common occurrence.
