Can you recommend a low-acid tomato variety?
I have chronic acid reflux and need a low acid tomato seed or plant recommendation.

Though there are a number of commercial .com web sites such that list low acid tomato varieties, they may not be verified by research based institutions. This University of Nebraska fact sheet on Growing the Best Tomatoes, states: ” Low-acid varieties can be an answer for people who do have an issue with acid. Unfortunately, they also sometimes can be bland, especially if they are low-sugar. Varieties such as Ace, Amish Paste, Big Girl, Fireball and San Marzano are more common low-acid selections”.
I would caution you to consult your physician before trying any of these to make sure they will not aggravate your medical condition.
