Enhancing Flavour and Production Traits of Canadian Greenhouse Tomatoes

Producing greenhouse tomatoes with improved flavour, disease resistance and low light tolerance suited to Canadian greenhouse growing conditions is the goal of this research program. Work is underway to build consumer preference maps, biochemical profiles and bioinformatics resources that will ultimately lead to growth opportunities for commercial growers.
