Hi,
I am looking to plant a real sweet tasting table type tomato. I don't mean the cherry tomato types...
Any recommendations?
Thanks,

You want to look into Heirloom tomato plants. Our favorite is the Cherokee Purple. Black Krim is also good along with Old German.Heirloom tomatoes need a longer growing season. Tomatoes do better if you also have warm humid nights.

I bought a german sounding named tomato from Lowes a few years ago and it was a very delicious beefsteak type. Very big and irregular shaped, pink but very dense and meaty. I like the beefsteak type tomatoes just sliced as a side dish for dinner.

Thanks for the input. I planted a celebrity, a Black Krim, a cherry tomato. Funny thing on my way home from work last night, a lady in town had a stand outside by the road and it said, "Free Tomato Plants, Help Yourself". So I took a six pack. They are not labeled, so I will have a pack of mystery tomatoes....
