tomato recommendations

I am looking for a reliable cordon tomato to grow in a polytunnel. I would like a largish fruit (not beef) with good flavour. Looking at seed catalogues is not the same as tried and tested by growers so recommendations will be gratefully received. image

    Money Maker. A good red English style tomato. Lots of fruits to each plant.

    Golden Sunrise. Yellow and prolific and very tasty.

    Tigerella. Striped. Not huge but tangy-tasting.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
  • Black Cherry is a good one tooimage  Sungold is also well worth while but maybe a bit smaller than you require.

  • I grow sungold and love it. I am looking for something bigger.

  • Black Cherry is bigger Barbara.........nice colour, good flavourimage  There are so many varieties these days and people's idea of flavour differs so much.  Decisions, decisionsimage

  • Mmmm........ difficult!

    I had heard lots of derogatory comments about Moneymaker - but we grew it this year and liked it - lots of flavour ( which is what its detractors complained about).

    We did not inherit the earth from our grandparents.  We’re borrowing it from our children.
