Default Fewer Varieties Next Year

This year, I planted about 40 different varieties of tomatoes for market. My thought is that people like variety and the names sell. After this season, I believe that I am going to cut it down quite considerably. So many of the cherry varieties look so similar, even I can't tell the difference after putting them in a bin. I know there are differences in flavor, but put Purple Bumble Bee, Safari, Violet Jasper, Pink Boar & Pink Bumblebee together in a basket and see if you can tell the difference. Customers do not seem to care what variety it is either.

This is only my third year of selling to the market, so I am learning slowly. I plan on planting about 300 plants next year and growing maybe 15 varieties.

How many varieties do you folks generally grow?
