Re: 2010 Tomato Roundup

I'm in zone 5b/6a, Pittsburgh, PA

Sun Gold was fantastic -- started the earliest and is still producing bountifully

Early Girl was second-best: good flavor, medium yield. Got some kind of mildewy-looky fungus (not late blight) in mid August.

Stupice: OK. Reasonable flavor, bountiful at first and then really slowed down.

Black Krim: terrible. Fruit grew and then decomposed before it fully ripened.

Amish Paste: Not very flavorful in my garden.

Goldie: a large orange tomato. Not pretty unless you like lots of protrusions, but pretty tasty.

Wow, KathyWid -- planting tomatoes in the fall! It's almost worth putting up with Carolina heat -- but not quite. :-)
