Tomato varieties

I am still looking for the "perfect Tomato flavour". On previous threads I have said that I am looking for medium sized fruit with good flavour. I have received advice that medium fruit are relatively tastless (I agree) but Cherry Toms are too small for anything other than a salad - try making a sandwich out of them!!

So however, has anyone come across a "Cherry" type Tom" somewhere in size between Gardener`s Delight and a mid size Tom????

    On Beechgrove recently, Sungold won the taste test.  It has an AGM form the RHS so worth investigating.

    I have grown Black Russian this year and been very pleased.   It's fleshy like a beef tomato but a medium size and very tasty.
