Favorite cooking tomato?

what is your favorite tomato to cook with? I am not a fan of eating raw tomatoes, but I love soup, salsa, marinara, etc. At the store I am limited to a few varieties, but if I can manage to get a garden plot this year I can grow whatever I want. so what is your favorite tomato to cook with?

During the garden season I cook with whatever the farm markets have brought in that day. Freshness trumps variety. During the long winter months i buy the Roma tomatoes since they last the longest in the refrigerator and are the least objectionable as to taste.

but if I grow it myself then I know it will be fresh ;)


I was thinking roma. But there are soooo many varieties I just don't know if there is something else we might like.

Any tomato would be great if you keep it out of the refrigerator!

Roma's are about all I can buy here...occasionally I find grape or cherry tomatoes, but the Romas are truly wonderful - deep red, sweet and always fresh.
