Ryan Jacobsen with the Fresno County Farm Bureau visited Great Day to talk about What's In Season: Tomatoes.

Fresno County produces nearly 100,000 acres of processing tomatoes each year.

Processing tomatoes grown locally are different from the fresh market tomatoes.

Ryan says the processing tomato has a thicker skin, more pulp and less water.

He says they have been created to have a thicker skin for mechanical harvesting. Fresh market tomatoes are hand picked.
