Flavor is the best reason to grow tomatoes in the home vegetable garden. Choose flavor first when deciding which tomatoes to grow.
The author of "Harvest to Table" gives his 5-S’s - his favorite tomatoes for salads, salsa, sandwiches, sauces, and soups. These are tomatoes he has grown and would grow again:
I should try the Druzba variety - Sweet, juicy Bulgarian heirloom resistant to fruit diseases and cracking:
Enjoy this Bulgarian heirloom whose name means "friendship." 'Druzba' is a productive variety with excellent juicy sweet flavor. Fruits are borne 2-4 to a cluster, weigh an average of 5 oz. and measure 2" high by 3" wide. Although the fruit walls are tender, they are resistant to fruit diseases, cracking, and blossom end rot. Produces a large percentage of uniform ripening, high quality blemish-free fruit. Well liked at farmer's markets. Resistant to early blight, blossom end rot, cracking, and cat facing.
This mini-beefsteak has superb flavor. Indeterminate vines assure a long season of harvest, much larger than other heirloom beefsteaks. However, Days to Maturity: 80 days
