My Tomato Favorites
in Missouri (Zone 5B)

My all-time favorite is Sun Gold -- it produces an amazing amount of very flavorful tomatoes.
Next is Brandywine -- but the RED one, not the pink one. The flavor is excellent, even if half of the plant is lost to bugs or blight
I always plant Big Boy because my mother did. It produces well here and tastes like my childhood.
I'm a big fan of Matt's Wild and Red Currant...for eating IN the garden...
I plant Yellow Pear because I think it tastes rather bland and the squirrels really prefer it. (Keeps them away from the rest of my crops!)
