Default Hot Dry Desert Climate Tomato's.

Hello everybody.
I'm looking for tomato seeds/varieties that both grow and produce well in a hot dry desert climate. I live in Tucson Arizona where we grow the most beautiful rocks you'll ever lay eye's on.

Well we have quite a few Arizona and desert Southwest posters here. I am in a hot inland SoCal climate. I think most of us probably don't try to grow much in August although I do still have tomatoes with fruit on them they take a real beating once the triple digit heat sets in. I am growing a tomato called Flamenco this year supposedly bred for SW conditions. Seems to be holding up pretty well. I found it on a seed site called Nativeseeds.org which might be of interest to you.

Thank you linda i'll look it up. I got so tired of just "accepting" whatever they had to offer at my local garden centers that i decided i could do better by buying my own seed and starting from scratch. It's been an interesting journey learning that there really is more out there if i just look.
