After 45 years of growing tomatoes my list has finally shrunk down to these 6 varieties for 2024: SOTW, Dester, AGP, Rebel Yell, Daniel Burson, and Rosovye Krupnye. The older I get the shorter my list gets. I only have 4 or 5 varieties left on my Bucket list.

I was just telling my partner the other day that if I had to, I could whittle my list down to these favorites: Benevento F1 and Polaris for tomato sandwiches, Purple Boy F1 for a reliable tasty medium tomato, and for cherries, Rosella cherry and Chocolate Sprinkles F1. All of these did very well last year despite the root-knot nematodes in some beds. A month ago I planted Kodiak mustard, which is nematocidal if it's chopped and incorporated into the soil at the right time.


Here's what I'm actually seeding this year, in addition to those 5:

striped/multi: Belle du College, Magic Bullet, Pink Berkeley Tie Dye, Prairie Fire, Talvez F1, Thorburn's Terra Cotta, Maglia Rosa, Taste Patio, Girl Girl's Weird Thing

dark: Black Plum, Carolina Dusk, Cowboy, Daifuku, One Trick Pony, Raya Rey, Reinhard Kraft's Purple Sugar

pink: Damsel F1, Pink Champagne, Pink CherryWine F!, Pink Jazz, African Queen, Pruden's Purple, Raspberry Lyanna

red: Franchi's Red Pear, Granny's Throwing, Jersey Breeze, Sheboygan, Bush Early Girl F1, Cherry Falls, Picus F1, Ruby Slippers, Beefy Red, Belmonte Pear, Legend, Sweet Aperitif, Tommy Toe

yellow/orange: Goldie, Moon Child, Orange Jazz, Sunrise Bumble Bee, Thorburn's Lemon Blush, Woodle Orange, Orange Hat, California Sungold, Hawaiian Pineapple, Kellogg's Breakfast, Taxi

GWR: Sweet Baby Jade, Bo Mango, Green Bee F1

I don't think I've ever grown so many indeterminate cherry tomato varieties before! My list of reds also looks much longer than usual.

Have a wonderful season!

That's a nice list. Daniel Burson is a dark tomato. You have it listed as pink.

Also, Goose Creek is a pink tomato, not red.


I have about 50 varieties started so far and will start another 100 or so over the next few days.

I thought my list was posted somewhere but here goes. There have been a few additions and subtraction since the first list.

2023 was so bad if I didn't show some early enthusiasm I may not even try gardening for a while. So earliest ever list of tomatoes and peppers:

Reds: Box Car Willie, Fred Limbaugh's Potato Top, Neve's Azorean Red, Domingo, Tsarskiy Lubmets

Pinks: Big Ben #1, Cowlick's Brandywine, Brimmer, Butterbaugh, Dot's Delight, Giant Belgium, Soldaki, Willow's Bulgarian

Yellow/Bi-color: Jeanine's Heart, Orange Russian #117

Black: Carbon, Kan-Tex Sweetheart(? is this correct), Maggie Mater.

Red Heart: Amizilettii's Giant Red Heart, Anzhela Gigante, Bobbie, Linnie's Oxheart, Rozovyi Kilogrammov

Pink Heart: Anna Russian, Mom's Heart, Pappy Kerns Pink Heart, Kukla Portuguese Heart

Salad Size: Stupice, Compari (grow out from store bought tomato)

Peppers: Giant Aconcagua, Chablis, Corno Di Toro Yellow, Fat-n-Sassy, Peppi Red, Peppi Yellow, Red, Yellow and Red Snacker from store bought hybrid, Giant Sweet Devil's Horn Orange, KL-C red

I will try zucchini, some decorative gourds and Orange-glo watermelon without much hope for getting a crop, but I try anyway.

Mrs PaulF ordered a whole pile of flowers that will get an early start along with the tomatoes and peppers

Ah. Thanks. I haven't grown it before, and somehow thought it was pink.

Yes, I think it is pink, but know there was some thread on here a long time ago about whether the original source was red or pink. I think the one I have is actually pink (translucent skin), but I had it in my spreadsheet as a red (yellow skin). I haven't grown it in years, so I'll confirm it this season.
