Santorini is a volcanic island, and its characteristic soil and weather define the character of Santorini tomatoes. The soil contains no nitrogen, and the tomatoes are often unfertilized. On the other hand, the soil contains sodium, which is hygroscopic, and can absorb moisture from the air and traps it. The water stress and limey, alkaline soil largely account for the selective breeding that develops these tomatoes.
