Flavorless Tomatoes

We have had a few Aerogardens for a few years and had very mixed result.

Pretty good herbs ... especially basil.  Pretty good lettuce.

No sucess with spinach and worst of all watching tomatoes grow and ripen to beautiful reds but they

are totally flavourless.  pH is good.  Used Aerogarden nutrients.  On some tried supplementing with tomatoe special minerals

No joy.

Does anyone get flavorful tomatoes ???

Oh, I missed the spinach part

Oh, I missed the spinach part. You're not alone. My problem was getting its root to go through the sponge.  And then the pH will be too low. And then... Yeah, it isn't a good way to grow spinach. I did see one person (ever) who managed it.

I've managed some delicious

I've managed some delicious Sweet Baby Girl cherry tomatoes. Used extra side-lights, plus urban farm fertilizers Texas Tomato Food nutes, dumped and refilled the reservoir every week... Park's Better Bush tomatoes, too, but that took more futzing, and the plant is really too big to bonsai into an Aerogarden. So is Sweet Baby Girl, but it's a floppy vine that slumps OK.

I've never tried the Aerogrow tomato kits.
