Re: Tomatoes: Request for Reader Recommendations

My favorite small tomato is also Sungold. This year I tried a new small tomato called Jolly tomato, it is a larger cherry tomato and it was very tasty. I did notice though with all the rain we got this summer in PA, they did tend to split. My favorite medium to large this year was Eva's Purple Ball. This tomato produced in abundance and the flavor was amazing. I would have to agree with Ruth and say that my choice for the best flavor would also be Speckled Roman. Not only are they a pretty tomato with their stripes, but also they grew in abundance and were very flavorful. I think the paste tomato that Veeta may have grown might be Opalka or Polish Linguisa.
