Evaluation of Tomato Varieties under Organic Production Practices

henry_kuskaApril 27, 2014

From summary:
"Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is a popular crop among organic growers, particularly open-pollinated varieties; however, there is a lack of information evaluating these varieties in comparison with commercial F1 hybrids. This study was undertaken to compare conventionally produced commercial F1 tomato varieties available in the southeastern United States with open-pollinated varieties popular among organic growers."

I grow a mix of F1 hybrids and open pollinated varieties. Most are grown for production + flavor, some are grown because they stay small + production + flavor. Since all gardening is local and taste is subjective, consider doing a trial to determine which varieties work best for you.

Here are some EarthBox toms that I planted out on St. Patrick's Day:
