I grew Tami-G grape tomatoes this spring and they did great.

thanks:) I grew Roma, Early Girl, Mortgage Lifter and tomatilloes this year; they didn't produce as well as I felt they should. But we did have a super hot June, too much heat too early stressed the plants. Interested in what other gardeners have grown--I want to try different varieties but not sure which ones to buy and which ones to avoid.

Im trying Better Boy this fall, as well as another Tami-G. Had a Big Boy this spring that suffered from the heat, so avoiding it.

I live in 9b. I did well with lemon boy, yellow pear and arkansas traveler. Google heat tolerant tomatoes,that can give you a hint. I grow 3 sets of tomatoes,spring, summer and fall. On a mild year I have tomatoes most of the year.
