What might very well make the difference in my experience compared to yours, and an even bigger reason I grow them in pots away from the main garden, is that if I have a big problem that spreads in the main garden where they may touch and all share the same soil, they are isolated from it and I still get some tomatoes. Early, protected, and insurance. So to be honest, I can't really give an opinion on disease resistance in a normal garden.
I like mano too.

Of the 4 Dwarf Tomatoes, I have only grown the Dwarf Arctic Rose. If I was to grow three instead of two, which One would you drop?
Also a tomato that I do not see mentioned often on here is Bulgarian Triumph. It does well here for me but I am wondering if any of you have grown it? I am mulling over whether to add it.
I'd take Choc champ and sweet adelaide. But that's mostly because I prefer the taste of those two over the other two.
