About Those Red Tomatoes

From the LA Times:

But the new study, published this week in Science, found that the mutation that leads to the uniform appearance of most store-bought tomatoes has an unintended consequence: It disrupts the production of a protein responsible for the fruit’s production of sugar.

So can we go back to ugly looking but good tasting fruit (yes, tomatoes are fruit)? I’d strongly prefer taste to color.
