Every year a friend plants one tommy toe plant. It has a good yield but not enough to even use on a cheese pizza. Just enough to be eating 2-3-4 every 2-3 days.

Is there a type of tomato plant that might yield 1-2 large ones per week?
No one wants to eat tomatoes every day. Well maybe you do.

We do eat them every day, and with the great cherry tomatoes like Sweet 100, Sungold and Black Cherry, we get lots of them. I can tell you though that we had a disappointing crop from our Black Krim, so that might suit you. The ones we did get are the best tasting tomatoes we've ever had, juicy and flavorful with solid meat and few seeds. The last one was the size of a baseball and used for BLTs with applewood smoked bacon.

Northeast Texas here and I had terrible luck with my maters this year. Oddly, so did my daughter who lives in Ohio. And so did many of my local friends. I can't figure it out, but I do know that here we had a cooler, wetter summer than usual.

It depends on the type, soil, and weather. This was, indeed, a bad year for tomatoes for many people. In the past, I've given them to neighbors. I bought most of mine this summer. It's hard to predict a harvest.

Both "Brandywine" (red) and "Persimmon" (yellow) are known for their relatively low yield of large, incredibly delicious tomatoes.

I have noticed Heirloom tomatoes have a low yield, i do not grow them for that reason. Here in New Jersey it got cool at the end of August and the first week of September and the tomatoes stopped ripening, then the weather changed to more summer like 80's and they all been ripening the last 2 weeks and i am running out of people to give them to.

Haha! We got exactly TWO Black Krim that were acceptable to eat. The rest had giant holes/blemishes that attracted all kinds of bugs. Yuck. But the 2 we got were very juicy and tasty. We will not be planting them again next year.

Yep, here in southern NJ, the tomatoes were a disappointment. Last year, we had great yields of delicious tomatoes. I think they were hurt by the cool, rainy start to the summer.

2017 year has been a poor year. MidValley Oregon.
We had a long and wet winter-spring and and long and dry summer and fall.
Past orchardist. Our apples, pears, plums, prunes, are not par and much I let fall because of poor flavor and low yields. Likewise our tomatoes and beans have been poor yielding. (Cherry 100 and the black cherry tomatoes, and cucumbers are the exception.

Black Krim. My favorite mater, and we couldn't find one this year!
