I'm not even a fan of GWR tomatoes, but Green Gables and Cherokee Lime both taste fantastic, and I will grow one this year!

OTOH I am very partial to bi-colours and Midnight Sun is a beautiful and tasty heart

Linda, they will be at F7 in the fall, and Karen will decide if they are stable enough then for a very select trial. Stay tuned....

Looks like maybe some of your opinions are changing on not only green when ripe but also brown fruit, because you like Nefertiti very much and so did I of course, and that is absolutely brown.

I grew Cherokee Chocolate last year again. It was the only brown I ever grew. I liked the taste and productivity.
Which green should I try first? Lately I am adding more and more hearts, is there a good heart GWR?

Reinhardt Kraft's GWR heart is one.

This McKinley was striking because of its size, weighing in at close to 2 lb, about five times as big as they usually get. The Taste is absolutely delicious.
Dotson's Lebanese heart, got some nice ones and was able to photo them the first one to come to some very bad fungus that affected my entire Garden, I have not tasted it yet.
Bacon lettuce and this, thank you Gary for the seeds. I have not tasted it yet.

The first two are dwarf Sweet Scarlet, I have not tasted it yet.
The next one is Mat-Su Express which is a very good size and very good disease tolerance for market and plus it taste just delicious. Highly recommend, great job Mark and Sherry, this one is potato leaf.

I really liked Sweet Scarlet last year. However, I cannot remember which I liked the best between Scarlet, Waratah and Tanunda. Looking forward to your tasting results for Scarlet.

Mat-Su was a joint project with Mark and Sherry. Maybe it was a typo with Sue! I need to try that one this year as others here in AK have only high praise for it.

OMG - I thought I had most of my tomatoes picked out and seeing your bountiful harvest, I may have to re-think a few! They all look so yummy, especially in this colder part of the country. Thanks for sharing the many great varieties. drool. drool.

Marsha, how are your tomatoes divide by color normally? What percent approximately pink, what percent are black, green, red, yellow, bicolor and so on? Do you make conscious decision about it or just let it happen?

I don't really divide them up, I just let it happen this season there's more Reds than usual.
