Top Ten Tomato Varieties

Here are my 10 favorite tomato cultivars:

1. Roma. The perfect tomato for all things Italian.

2. 1884 beefsteak. Discovered in WV, this thing is the size of a small European car.

3. Cherokee purple. So pretty, so juicy.

4. Mortgage lifter. Another WV original, this one is good for kids due to the low acidity.

5. Ida Gold. My favorite of the yellow and/or orange 'maters.

6. Mr. Stripey. Fun to say, fun to look at, fun to cut into, and even more fun to eat.

7. Sweet 100. My 3 year-old' favorite, they are very sweet and poppable.

8. Pink beefsteak. Its fleshy look makes any sandwich look like a zombie's sandwich.

9. Tomatillo. Ok, not a true tomato, but it makes for some great salsa.

10. Ugly. The uglier, the better.

I bought all kinds of different tomato seeds for this year, including two striped heirloom kinds and black cherry tomatoes. Then, Mama got sick. Maybe next year I'll actually plant them. Curmy loves tomatoes.

Tomato is a tomato is a tomato to me. I don't likes um unless they are in my ketchup or on my pizza. Not quite sure why. I think it's a texture thing.

P.s. it's a fruit (for the win!!) LOLZZZZ!!!

I hate the store-bought rubberized ones, but I'll take a home-grown variety any day.
