I'm panning my garden for the summer, and I could use feedback about a
few tomato varieties:
I'd really appreciate any feedback from people who have grown these.
I have raised Goliath and Celebrity and they did OK, everything considered,
(really bad weather and me not being able to raise tomatoes, ever). They
tasted OK, but I dint keep them separated and couldn't tell which was which
when we were eating them.
Try them, see which you like, and don't plant the others next time. I can a
lot, and like the pears and stuffers because my wife cant eat small seeds of
any kind. Those are easier to get the pulp out of, before processing.
I haven't tried any of those, but definitely add this cherry variety to your
list. Absolutely delicious!
Sun Gold Hybrid:
I can recommended the Viva Italia. It is a paste type but is very sweet,
great in salads or just plain eating. It is a semi-determinate and has
better resistance to blight than most varieties I grow.
Looks like a good list but I would ad First Lady II and a cherry Sun
Sugar which is a lot like the Sun Gold it looks like. It make a lot of
difference what area you are in.

Whitewall obviously isn't a sensible person. He (or it) only wants responses
to vague demands posted without being in any way cooperative. If you saw the
nasty response I got to my innocent questions, you would see the arrogant
troll has a severe attitude problem too. Only subservient butt kissers are
acknowledged. You can forget expecting anything sensible from that vain toad
Why would I beleive you?
Everytime I post something that you partly disagree with you pounce on
it and come back with some unnessary remark.
Please hold back a little and not stup to childish name calling. It is
Your opinion counts just as much as mine so it matters little what
anyone including me everyone is entitled to their own opinion, No
matter what country you live in.
I don't know where you come from nor what your life is like, so I can
not judge your comments based on your posts you make.
Have a happy day
The flames and off-topic posts are quickly ruining this thread, so
I'll try again.
I live in southern Wisconsin, and I'm planning my garden for summer.
Each year, I grow tomatoes, which are frequently in demand at the local
food pantry. A few summers ago, I gave them more than 850 tomatoes.
Because my space is limited, I always plant a number of tomatoes in
NOTE: Cherry tomatoes are not much in demand, and most of the people
I've encountered here prefer red tomatoes of some considerable size
- large enough to be used for sandwiches and so on.
Before I came to this group, I did research online, but I never found
the answers I was seeking. I've already visited several garden web
sites, none of which offered customer feedback about the container
varieties I'm planning to grow. If anyone has enjoyed personal
experience with these, I'd love to hear about them. I've found
that such feedback has tremendous value.
I have enough yard space to plant some tomatoes in the ground -
probably no more than 10 plants. First Prize, Jumbo Hybrid, Jet Star,
New Yorker, and Oregon Spring are the ones I'm leaning towards, but
I'd welcome opinions from the group about this as well.
P.S. Thanks to those of you who already offered such polite,
Yes and I am sorry for involving myself off topic posts. If Cv wants to
continue this talk he needs to e-mail me which he more than welcome to.
Yes my E-mail is valid

Nobody here gives a flying farkle, whiteweiner.
You know where you can stick your tomatoes.
Why don't you go and annoy the dummies on GardenWeb instead?
It figures you are out in the boonies of Wisconsin, city folks would kick
your arrogant cracker butt.
Who died and made you god, Whiteboy?
You are just another troll interloper and you have no authority over people
who have been here much longer than your sorry pathetic association.
You definitely would be much happier with your fellow butt buddies on
Be off with you before you stink up the place any more.
