But… how can we know this??

Oh yeah, science!

According to science and scientists alike, tomatoes are getting tastier… and will be much more so in five years!

So how did they find this out? Just by unlocking the ENTIRE tomato genome!

It took them NINE years!

Tomatoes have 31,760 genes, which is about 7,000 more than humans!

No wonder it took so long!

Apparently this sequencing is fab news for tomato enthusiasts, as it will lead to much more delicious tomatoes in the future!

Plus this might mean a reduction in need for pesticides and all the other terrible things they do to grocery store tomatoes.

We never thought we'd see the day! Finally, they're about to work all the kinks out of tomatoes!

Science! Science! Science!
