Default Looking for Best Flavored Hybrids

All seed listings make every hybrid sound delicious and productive......And therefore difficult to select a limited few.

Which are the best flavored hybrids for my area.

Weather has been yo-yoing year to year....From a very cold rainy late March weather up to mid June then jump into a very short warm summer and Indian Fall to last summer very hot with nine days of ninety degree day in a row and a general lack of rain. This is New England!

Figure a few heat loving and a few cold loving and a few in the middle.

Hi. What was the yield of marbonne? Can you tell us more about this variety. I'm very interested in growing margold, marbonne and marnero.

I'd add that when choosing hybrids, flavor isn't at the top of the list for traits I'm looking for. Customers that want to grow/eat hybrids are the types that think a tomato is red/round/easy/and taste like a store bought. I go for best prod/disease resistance instead since more bland tomatoes typically make customers more happy than less of slightly better tasting tomatoes, thats my 2cent. But I do grow BB F1 pretty much every year. It has both traits.

I'll probably grow a couple Big Beef every year, for give-aways and a production benchmark, even though I love the heirlooms so much more.

Ricky, that's funny because I do the same! BB produces much more than my heirlooms and if I have a tablefull of tomatoes, I give away the BB!! That being said, BB is my favorite Hybrid and it's been in my garden for a long time! It's my standard as well.

Early Girl is the most popular hybrid in AK, it tastes good and is a production machine.
Big Beef has been popular for years too, good production, decent taste.
Momotaro tastes great, fair production
Brandy Boy tastes great, very good taste, good production in the right hands.
Trust taste pretty good, great production.
Tomimaru muchoo has a good taste, grown by some market gardeners up here in AK
Garden Treasure taste good, produces good
I have grown many hybrids for 25 years, these are the better ones I have tried.

I did grow a couple New Girl last year, they were pretty good, I will try it again this year. I also have grown Summer Girl, they have been decent to pretty good. I am not sure yet why the taste has been variable.

FUnny, I didnt expect Early Girl to taste better than BB. You know, early means BLAHH.

Garden Treasure was on my list but didnt find much support for keeping it on the list-- will put it back on.
