Re: Tomatoes: Request for Reader Recommendations

I have had excellent luck with a little known variety called Pollock up here in Canada they are a compact plant producing tons of excellently flavoured tomatoes with small seed pockets and melt in your mouth texture to them when they are ripe. They are a medium sized tomatoe - red as red can be and they grow in the garden, in pots and we have overwintered them in the house and got tomatoes off them through the winter. My other favourite is the Juliet although they don't really qualify as the cherry they are described as - in my garden they are about the size of a small roma but the flavour is amazing and when you dry them the sweetness makes them almost like candy!
