Question-Your Favorite Tomato

I have been wondering about the favorite tomato of gardeners. Years ago I would have said Brandywine was my fav.  Now I am not sure I have a favorite.

How about you? Which tomato tastes the best and is not that challenging to grow in your opinion?


  1. I don't eat tomatoes (shocker!) but SM loves them. We're still in the process of discovery but last years Baker Creek German Red Strawberry was a hit with him. I noticed they didn't offer it last year as I need to save the seeds for sure this year.

    I'm trying serveral new ones this year and am most excited for the Amish Paste. I hear lots of wonderful things about it on everybodys blogs. A good paste tomato is hard to find!

  2. Tami thanks for posting favorites. I agree that a good paste tomato is hard to find.

  3. thats a hard choice to make there are SO many... i am growing 6 varietys this year a few new ones but my fav of laxt year would be alice Craig i loved it but my fav changes each year!

  4. Oh my. So many choices. I love brandywines - pink, red, black and yellow, Black Krim and Cherokee Purple - they are first to get planted. Then I have Yellow Pear for salad and snacking, Amish Paste and San Marzano for sauces (very meaty and little seed). This year I'm also trying about 20 new varieties to see if I'll like them - Mortgage Lifter, Rainbow, Black Pineapple (Ananas Noire) and Purple Calabash on my "can't wait to try them" list.
