Tomato varieties

sadly I missed hearing the names of 2 of the tomatoes that Monty is growing this year ....please help if you can as I like to try different ones every year.

    The beefsteak one with the ribs is costoluto fiorentino. The small ones are gardeners delight. I didn't get the pink one, sorry.

    Thanks for that ....if anyone out there has the name of the pinkish skinned one I'd be very grateful.

    Rose De Berne.  I've not grown that one but can recommend Pink Brandywine if you like a large pink beefsteak tomato.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thanks ...that's great !

    im picking my pink brandywine at the moment.....good but not the best for flavour . 

    That was definitely Soldaki which I will grow again for sure.....amazing taste but late fruiting and sparse fruiting....great if you have lots of space.
