Attention Everyone, The County Fair contest starts Tuesday, the 14th!

Rate and review your favorites, please!

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

With the harvest is pouring in, now is a perfect time to share your observations and opinions - and photos - in PlantFiles: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/finder/index.php?sname=Tomatoes

We have over 3,300 varieties listed, so if you need help finding a particular variety, let one of the admins know - you can post here, or use the contact us link to get quick assistance.

Why bother doing this?

What you know can help others: your independent review of a tomato's merits is far more interesting to most folks than reading the marketing "blurb" written by a vendor.

And pictures (especially of just-ripe tomatoes) are fun to look at all winter ;o)

As of right now, only about 600 of our entries have a picture, so you can make a big difference in PlantFiles for the varieties you are growing, have grown in the past, or even the varieties your neighbor is growing: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/adv_search.php?searcher%5Bcommon%5D=&searcher%5Bfamily%5D=&searcher%5Bgenus%5D=lycopersicon&searcher%5Bspecies%5D=&searcher%5Bcultivar%5D=&searcher%5Bhybridizer%5D=&searcher%5Bgrex%5D=&search_prefs%5Bblank_cultivar%5D=&search_prefs%5Bsort_by%5D=rating&images_prefs=with&Search=Search

Here's a shortcut to those entries that don't have a photo: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/adv_search.php?searcher%5Bcommon%5D=&searcher%5Bfamily%5D=&searcher%5Bgenus%5D=lycopersicon&searcher%5Bspecies%5D=&searcher%5Bcultivar%5D=&searcher%5Bhybridizer%5D=&searcher%5Bgrex%5D=&search_prefs%5Bblank_cultivar%5D=&search_prefs%5Bsort_by%5D=rating&images_prefs=without&Search=Search

This year I grew Mr. Stripey, Malachite Box, Jet Star, Sun Sugar, and Sweet 100's in ground.

I was happy with the quality and taste of all of the tomatoes grown, ... but was stymied in yield by Septoria disease. Next year, I will probably duplicate the varieties grown, but will take every step available to prevent/halt/manage disease.

I also grew a couple of varieties in pots, ... Patio and some pre-planted cherry. The cherry tomatoes were good, ... nut the Patio tomatoes were nothing short of tasteless. Perhaps it's just my old age showing ...

Best producer this year was Husky Cherry Red, a good sized cherry that resisted disease that hit halfway through the season and leveled many other varieties.

Laceys Spring, AL(Zone 7a)

Cherokee Purple and Sunsugar. Hands down the best 2 in my garden every year. I also grow and try others but these two are always there and always do well. I even had Sunsugars in late October/early Nov.

Amherst (Snyder), NY(Zone 6a)

Adelaide Festival (dwarf) and Large Red Periform . The Periform got as high as the balcony above me. I sold my house after 41 years and grew all my tomato in Gardner Supply revolution grow bag lined planters. I refuse to give up gardening.

Do you mean Red Pear Piriform or is your LRP a different variety?
Johnny's Seeds describes RPP as "Pear shaped, 7-9 oz. fruits with ribbed shoulders. Old fashioned, juicy, sweet flavor. Harvest when shoulders are still green. From Liguria, Piedmonte, and Abruzzo regions of Italy. Indeterminate."
