But it's really a personal choice and the

#1. BeefMaster and BeefSteak...**Large tomatoes**
#2. Celebrities...*I think, very good tomatoes**
#3. Sweet 1,000's..*small little tomatoes*
#4. Grape tomatoes..*very acidy tasting, I think, tiny~tiny grape sized tomatoes.
#5. Jet~Star..*early tomato
#6. Rutgers Tomatoes..*good solid growing tomato

#8. Roma's...*for making salsa's, very meaty*

Hope that helps some...
