I like heirloom varieties. Because we are in Italy we have tried some standard modern Italian varieties though. Have yet to see what the toms will fruit like, but they are growing brilliantly. Strawberries are coming thorugh well, but are quite taseless. I miss my old English varieties!
I started a pack of Tomato Heirloom Mix which includes Bonny Best(red),Golden Sunburst(yellow)BrandyWine Pink(pink)Black Krim(purple)Evergreen(green)and Djena Lees Golden Girl(orange).Its going to be fun to see what comes up.
I've also started Brandywine Hybrid,Super Beefsteak Hybrid,Burpee's Big Boy Hybrid,and Rutgers.
Brandywine is a wonderful heirloom variety! They are so sweet and juicy...best I've ever tasted. Georgia Streak is another delicious one. It's a big pink & yellow beefsteak type. I also recommend German Pink, a very tasty variety that is smoother and has less core than many beefsteaks.
