no they can't.
Same reason that tomatoes are red and carrots orange.

In the end, the most profitable way to farm involves chemicals to increase yields, pesticides to reduce loss, GE seeds to grow standardized crops that buyers want, etc. etc.

There's a reason heirloom tomatoes cost 3-4 times as much as Roma - they're more labor intensive, the yields are lower, and they're more prone to damage during shipping. They're also less picture-perfect, which a lot of consumers don't want, and they don't hold as long, so the shelf-life is much shorter.
