: If you had 5 variety of tomatoes what would you grow

You don't make it clear your zone or how many plants your planning on growing.

This year I'll grow 3 kinds of ind beefsteaks, 2 ind smaller fruited, 1 ind canner, 3 ind 6-by tomatoes.

I trellis all my tomatoes, I grow only heirloom tomatoes, I don't use pesticide--herbicide. I'll also have fewer than 100 plants this year.

I save all my own seed. Production of better seed is more important to me than more cases to tomatoes to market.

I am not partial to determinate tomatoes. Unless your gardening from the seat of a tractor and need multi case lots of tomatoes for market I don't like the inferior tomatoes.
