Most productive non-cherry- Butter Apple, a yellow with surprising amount of good taste.
Biggest disappointment- Pink Berkeley Tie Dye, plant went down early to Septoria and the taste was also wimpy.

Best Tasting non- cherry- Tie, Dark Galaxy and Fish Lake Oxheart. DG is a real surprise; it's a blue tomato with some of the best taste ever.

Nan, I too had trouble with PBTD this year. The first few fruits were yummy, and beautiful, but that didn't last. Of course we've had one heck of a season and most other varieties suffered too.
