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.
