|Any recommendations for modern hybrid tomatoes with great taste or disease resistant heirlooms?
Getting a little discouraged with the disease prone heirlooms I've been raising the last few years.
Mainly been raising my favs: Purple Cherokee. Pineapple, Aunt Rubys Green and trying 3 - 4 different
heirloom varieties annually.

|I don't know how disease-resistant these are, but they might susbtitute for Purple Cherokee:
Vorlon - OP, Mid-Season, potato-leaf, purple-black, smoky taste, blander than Krim
- - - - - - "Stabilized cross between Cherokee Purple and Prudens Purple"
Black Russian, dark red-black, mahogany red, Heavy producer and early
- - - - - rich old fashioned complex heirloom flavor, sweet taste with spicy and smoky undertones
Just because it ISN'T complicated doesn't mean I can't MAKE it complicated!
