Ten Best Tomatoes Ever

Who does not love fresh, home-grown tomatoes?

Here are the top-10 tomatoes that most often show up in Best Tasting Tomato polls and contests:

Heirlooms to the throne:

Cherokee Purple – Blackish-red color with a complex, earthy flavor. Very meaty, yet juicy. Plants grow up to 12 feet and are loaded big-sized fruits.

Brandywine – The King of Heirloom Tomatoes, judging by popularity and tasting awards. A pink variety with potato-like leaves. Moderate size for a beefsteak type.

Yellow Brandywine – Brandywine Sudduth Strain is a related yellow-variety that has also been highly rated for taste. If you like a sweeter (or slightly less acidic) logo, this is one to try.

Mortgage Lifter – Another classic heirloom; monster-size fruit with a tangy taste.

Aunt Ruby's German Green – "Tangy, but not tart tasting," says the Organic Gardening Magazine taste-testers. You have to judge ripeness by feel, not color.

Black Krim – This is one I'm eager to try out this year. From the Isle of Krim on the Black Sea in the former Soviet Union. This rare heirloom produces 3-4 "slightly flattened, mahogany-colored beefsteak tomatoes with deep green shoulders.

Two particularly tasty hybrids:

Better Boy – If you want loads of consistently shaped 12 – 16 oz. beefsteak type tomatoes loaded with classic logo flavor, this is your Boy.

Carmello – According to Organic Gardening: "A hybrid with real tomato taste. Also a reliable producer."

Two cherry tomato champs:

Sun Gold – This small, orange cherry tomato is packed with a delicious fruity tang and is super sweet!

Sweet Million – This cherry tomato produce up to hundreds of sweet, delicious fruits.
