          No it isn't. Broccoli is a brassica. Brassicas and legumes are not closely related at all other than they're both offshoots of the rose family.

              Well I know a good bit about this so lay it out for me then. Broccoli is in the brassica family of cabbage, kale, mustards etc and beans are in the legume family of peas, beans, lentils etc. The legume family. Those are in completely different plant orders. You have to go back to the clade of rosids to where they are in the same grouping. So botanically they aren't closely related so in what sense are they?

              The closest I can think is the French origin of where the term legume comes from but that seems like a stretch even for here.

      Yeah, tomatoes like a lot of fruit go through a pretty big flavor and texture change when they are refrigerated. All grocery store tomatoes are not only refrigerated, but picked way underripe for transport purposes. So someone who's only ever had them from a store won't know what they're actually like.

      I haven't had luck with Cherokee purples. They taste great but always yield very poorly. Half the time they rot on the vine before they're even ripe and it's not blossom end rot. There's plenty of calcium and magnesium in the soil and I even foliar feed with calmag+. I didn't bother with them this year. For dark tomatoes this year I went with black cherry and black prince, which have both done very well in the past.

      They'll just never frickin understand and its so complicated to explain it to someone who doesn't have the same view. I always saw tomatos as a slimy tasteless mess with a mealy planty texture at the same time, plus acids and dirty water flavor. Oh then to finish it all off; either a leathery skin or one thats simlar to eating that crust at the top of a soup.

      I will go through a pint of my favorite salsa though. Can't explain it; love tomato things, hate raw tomatoes.

        I kind of liked tomatoes, until I had a vine ripened one. that ruined tomatoes for me, because where I live it is difficult to grow them. vine ripened are light years better than any tomato you can buy in a store.

          I think the cultivar makes a huge difference, both for hardiness of the plant and flavor. you may be able to find some quick growing hardy variety that works where you live. grow bags also help a ton due to being able to use potting soil and how they air-prune the roots.

            it can get up to 125 degrees here in the summer.

            most plants just fricking die around june.

            to grow a garden here I would have to:
            do a raised bed. install a drip irrigation system, cover the entire garden with 50% sun netting. all this to get some tomatoes.

            and still they just fricking die from the heat.

            I oncee tried to grow grapes. I'll save you the story, when all was said and done my grapes (when I got some) cost me about $50 a pound. I am not kidding.

          Tomatoes aren't crazy shit, though. They used pewter plates and the acidity of the tomatoes released the caused lead to leach into their food, which caused them to blame tomatoes. They were also grouped in with other types of nightshade for a long time, which just led to the idea that they were poisonous.
