Best tasting tomatoes grown in hydro pots

Can anyone advise of the best tasting tomatoes to grow in a hydro pot system?  Do not want to grow beefsteak ones.

    Best tasting is always down to personal taste.
    A couple of the sweetest are sungold and suncherry which are both cherry toms. I'm growing both and they are very sweet.
    Rosella is an unusual colour and has a distinctive taste that I like.
    I always grow a Shirley too as it's easy, a decent size for slicing and has a good tomato flavour.
    Gardeners Delight has been around forever is lovely and there's Gardener's Extacy (!) recently released that I'll try next year.
    One to avoid in my opinion is Moneymaker - it doesn't seem to taste of anything
    Just a few thoughts - good luck

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • Ha   moneymaker is what I have in this year for the 1st time.  I agree very little taste.

    Candy Crush is recommended for blight-resistance and good flavour.

    This is a nice one, Jersey Devil, no Pips, skins very easily and gorgeous on toast with salt and pepper,

    alos growing Sweet Million, living up to its name, there are so many, I just pick them off and eat them. Growing Roma as always, all doing very well this year.

    Dear Suffolk, you are correct.  Blame those late-night gremlins.
