when it's 90+ with real high humidity.

I'm looking for something other than 4th of July's, heatmasters, and creoles.

I'm about to plant my summer tomato seeds in the next week or so as the spring ones go in the ground. I have room for about 1,000 plants which I've layed white on black plastic mulch for the summer in a spot that'll have some afternoon shade so they don't get so burned up. The tomatoes keep a roof over the kids heads, so I'm looking for ALL the varieties you think will make at 90+, high humidity - with the help of the cooling mulch and late afternoon mostly shaded.

Other veggies besides okra, eggplant, etc. that'll make then as well???
