Re: Tomatoes: Request for Reader Recommendations

I have gardened for over fifty years and the best paste tomato I have found is a fairly new variety from Burpee, Mama Mia. It has size, flavor, keeping capacity, few seeds, and realtively low acidity for a red variety, even good for slicing and sandwiches. I devote about half of my tomato space to this one every year.
For cherry-types you cannot beat Sweet 100; truly sweet taste, prolific production and resistant to most all fungus. I plant a couple of Sun Gold for low acidity every year, as well.
