The following tomato cultivars are recommended for South Carolina gardens:
Better Boy, Better Bush Improved, Big Beef, Celebrity, Early Girl, Park's Whopper, Terrific. Cherry Type: Juliet, Small Fry, Super Sweet 100, Sweet Million.
Plum Type: Viva Italia.

Always choose varieties with disease resistance. Fusarium wilt is a common disease that can destroy a whole tomato crop. Many varieties are resistant to this disease. This is indicated by the letters VF after the cultivar name. VFN means the plants are resistant to Verticillium, Fusarium and nematodes; VFNT adds tobacco mosaic virus to the list.
