"Brackish Water"

We were told that the reason these cherry tomatoes (the most common sort found in Israel, it seems) taste so sweet is that they are given salty water. There is a huge amount of water under the Negev, and there are desalination plants to process it for human uses, but finding plants that can tolerate the salt is still a good idea.
