I lost entire crop last season to intense heat, I would rather plant varities that are more heat resistant this year as suppose to heirlooms.
any suggestions? I get full sun all summer/spring.
Link below is to several previous discussions about heat-tolerant varieties with many suggestions included.
Here is a link that might be useful: Heat tolerant tomato discussions
Porter tomatoes are not the tastiest but they can take the heat. Had some last year that withstood 107 degree heat and baked in the sun all day. They stayed alive and produced. It's one tough tomato.
I have posted in several places this year that Fouth of July Hybrid came through our Summer, fruiting. My plant is Still alive under my patio cover, and still putting out fruit. My heat would have been at least as bad as yours, likely worse.
I'm trying Super Sioux this year. Cannot report results yet but it's advertised as heat tolerant and this variety is mentioned a few times in the link provided above by digdirt. I could send you a few seeds to try if you like. email me with your address if you are interested.
