Ahh, tomatoes, my passion. There are hundreds of varieties to choose from, all with there own tastes and benefits. Here are a few that are good eaten fresh in salads and for canning. Enjoy.

Viva Italia- mostly a canning tomato, but still good eaten fresh.
Ensalada- A saladette-type that is great eaten fresh or processed.
Big Beef- Mostly a fresh eating variety, but is a great all-around variety to grow.

These are all available from Burpee Seeds.(800-888-1447
