Question: What variety of tomato grows best in our zone?

Answer: You're lucky! You have a long, hot summer season and can grow beefsteak-type tomatoes. If you like slicing tomatoes, grow Burpee's Supersteak Hybrids or Burpee's Delicious. If you want to can tomatoes, try 'Viva Italia', and, if you just want to snack on your tomatoes, grow a cherry variety such as 'Super Sweet 100'. These are all available from the Burpee catalog.
