Best black, beefsteak and oxheart tomatoes?
I have a very small garden in Southwest Ohio where it's humid and often hot. Two years ago, I had great success growing Rostovas, Paul Robesons and Mariana's Peace. Last year was not so good, and my yields were very low due mostly to a very wet June and a long, hot spell in July. This summer, I'd like to grow the same or similar heirloom tomatoes, and I'm hoping you'll help me choose the ones with the best taste and yield. My favorite tomatoes are pink beefsteak types, but I also love oxhearts and black tomatoes. Of course, I want high yields since I can only grow a few plants.
If you had to grow only one of each of the following, which would you choose?
Pink beefsteak: Mariana's Peace vs. Earl's Faux vs. Mortgage Lifter
Oxheart: Rostova vs. Anna Russian vs. Kosova
Black: Paul Robeson vs. Cherokee Purple
If you have alternative favorites, I'd love to hear about them as well.
