Are there some good tomato varieties for our location (up to 95+ degrees in summer and very high humidity)?

Heatwave is definitely a good one to try. Also, Hawaiian VFNT Hybrid is heat-tolerant and delicious; Gulf State Market is an old variety popular in the Gulf states; Arkansas Traveler is a southern heirloom; Tropic VFT was developed for Florida's climate; and Cherokee Purple is an heirloom from Tennessee. Heatwave is available from Burpee, and all of these varieties are available from Tomato Growers Supply, P.O. Box 2237, Fort Myers, FL 33902, (941) 768-1119.
