That's a tough question.But I would grow Orange Roma.It is so delicious and crispy, good for slicing, and cooking.

Paul Robeson & Cherokee Purple were our "taste" favorites last year but many of the others mentioned here were also satisfying for us. Am trying 27 new (to me) varieties this year including a number of yellows - Had some seed given to me last year that produced a lovely yellow (mid-size, pleasant tasting) tomato but don't know the variety, so am trying to find the name!

I haven't tried a lot of tomatoes yet. But I'll go with Dotson's Lebanese Heart, as it's the best I've found for fried greens, as well as prolific, disease tolerant, tasty, versatile, and does better in my garden than most others. I'm going to have to pick a cherry/currant as well: Post Office Spoonful, for many of the same reasons as DLH.

If you're going to force me to choose between these two, I'd go with DLH, but there'd be much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.

You are very correct Nan, and not just from me,but as I look at the responses, it's mainly from those who haven't grown that many varieties, so that's very good that there are others here to help out.

Sure,I can name one it's called

WinterSpringSummerFall. And I'm hoping that someone here can Id the source.

It would be a much faired question if we were given the opportunity to choose one of every color group Even then it might behard. It has been asked before, and people have given their (interesting) answers. I don't know how to bring those threads up in a search though.

I could survive with 1) one black 2) one orange/yellow 3) one cherry 4) one green 5) one pink
Perhaps one smaller bush / hanging basked variety. That is six, the basic necessities

Ok, another vote for Sungold! Why? Because I've yet to find another that's more delicious, fun to eat, early, dependable, prolific, and that usually is the last tomato I'm eating in fall as the others have given up. Love it!

I knew you would say that Tormato

I would grow my Early Annie (which is crossed). It's early, compact, really tasty, and it persists all season .
