Re: 2010 Tomato Roundup

Zone 5, 15 miles west of Chicago. Was a hot, very rainy summer and the tomatoes were not s flavorful as past years.

I grow about 20 varieties, almost all heirlooms. Three, which I have grown for a few years and highly recommend are PING PONG, BLACK PLUM and GARDEN PEACH. They are incredibly productive and hardly ever develop any problems.

I also grow Sungold, and for the record that variety finished 1st and 2nd (not mine)in the Cafe Ba Ba Reba tomato tasting contest.
