My favorites are romas, yes, for making salsa like Jasmine. We have only 1 yellow pear but usually get more tomatoes than we can use off of just the one plant. Next are the grape tomatoes, they are the best in salads cause they have so much flavor. Right now we have some of each forming and will be picking a few in just about 10 days I think. Our Early Girls will be the first.

To me, they are all great, just so they survive, don't get eaten by the little critters around and I can pick, pick, pick.

I like the grape tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and romas the best. I'm anxiously awaiting my little grape tomatoes.

Ohhh, so what I've got is a Tumbling *Tom* in yellow, and the nursery just marked it a tumbling yellow. See, I don't know much about tomatoes yet.

My all-time favorite is yellow pear (reminds me of my grandfather's garden ), and last year's crop (our first) was outrageously good. I got to share some with two of our neighbors, both elderly women, who had never seen nor eaten them before.

Another success were our Romas, all 6 of them...we scaled it down to just one this year. Our Sweet 100's were also abundant (almost too much, we lost a lot of them due to lack of space in the house). All of our plants are showing lots of green babies, especially the sweet 100--it's loaded with them right now.

Longkeeper (you can get seeds from Burpee; it is kind of hard to find). You plant as soon as you can and you can pick when they just turn light pink and keep the tomatoes inside, not touching any others, for a long time. We put black plastic bags over them at night in the cold in fall and they still produce. We have had them, fresh, at Christmas. No joke.

Another excellent one is Black Krim.
