First Fruit: The Creation of the Flavr Savr Tomato and the Birth of Biotech Food
The author is a former Calgene scientist who tells the inside story of the Flavr Savr tomato, the first Genetically Modified food to go to market. After their release, these tomatoes enjoyed a brief period of glory, and then suffered a spectacular decline and ultimate failure. It is a very interesting story of good science and bad business.
