just a few tomatoes for hot dry days, cold nights??
I am having much trouble narrowing down my tomato list. I would like to grow heirlooms but have not had good luck with them so far. Cherokee purple, brandywine were failures (one or two tomatoes that didn't ripen), green zebra produced but didn't like, san marzano and costulato genovese produced well but had to pick them green and bring them inside. An OP "early cherry" I tried produced but was fairly tasteless.
So what I want is something that will produce well, actually ripen, and TASTE AMAZING in my conditions!
I have room for 4 or 5 varieties: 1 or 2 cherry, 1or 2 "regular type", and 1 paste. The one tomato I have grown that I really love is "Sungold"--if that tells you anything about our taste preferences! From my own reading, I am thinking of trying Stupice. Other than that, I'm just overwhelmed by choices!!!
I live in eastern washington. Summers are usually dry, nights are typically cold (50-60 degrees typical).
