I know the general rule for tomatoes is direct sun, but it is difficult to
find an area on our property thatg fits the bill. Last year I've planted on
the east side of the house where there is only direct sun from mid morning
to early afternoon. The varieties I've planted were brandywine and whopper.
The first produced less than I have hoped for, wile the second only produced
two fruits in the entire season. Are there any varieties more suited to
partial shade much of the day? I am in southwest New Jersey by the way, if
it makes any difference.
Thanks in advance

"Full sun" means at least 6 hours of direct sun a day. More is better.
If it is "difficult to find an area", it is also going to be very
difficult to grow a tomato. You might try locating a few spots that
*do* get sufficient sun and planting there or planting in containers
if a patio or deck is the only sunny spot.
