What’s the difference between hybrid, regular and organic tomatoes?

Hybrid Tomatoes – are basically breed plants that are created by plant breeders that intentionally cross-pollinated two types of plants.

Regular Tomatoes – are called globe tomatoes you will notice them if you go to a grocery store and see beefsteak or large tomatoes that are red, large, and round.

Organic Tomatoes – are synthetic pesticide and fertilizer free. These types of tomatoes are sweeter and with less acidity.
