What's your favorite variety of tomato?

Asked by Adirondackwannabe (36545points) June 18th, 2010

My supersweet 100’s already have lots of green tomatoes. Do you have a fav? My 100’s have a cult following in our area.

Yellow or Roma.

Depends on what I am using them for.

My favorite tomato is the tomato that’s not in my food or the one in my hand that I can chuck at people.

We grow Amish Paste for our own use, the following commercially:

Golianth F1 and St. Pierre for main crop.

Nebraska Wedding for late crop.

Currant Red for early crop (greenhouse started). We’re starting to harvest these now.

Peace Vine late cherry-type.

Evergreen main season as an experiment for salsa-making.

We got our original Amish Paste seeds from Seedsavers Exchange. We may plant some Cherokee Purple next year.
