Hello everyone.

It has been a while since my last visit to GW, hope everybody is well.

1. Marketmore 76

2. Straight eight

3. Burpee Hybrid II

4. Burpee Jolly Green Hybrid


1. Early Girl Hybrid

2. Better Boy Hybrid

3. Big Boy Hybrid

Hi Ron! Just as a suggestion, you may wish to post this same question in the Vegetable Gardening Forum, where the pros and cons of assorted vegetable hybrids and open pollinated varieties are discussed at great length.

I've planted all of those tomato varieties at one time or another and to be perfectly honest, have found them to be rather disappointing in the taste category. Productive, disease resistant, and sturdy...yes! Loads better than what you'll find at the grocery store, though. ;-)

Oops! I meant to attach a link to the Veggie Forum (in case you get lost, lol).

I'm sure that others in this forum will have some good comments, too.

Here is a link that might be useful: Let's see what the veggie growers say
