Heirloom Tomatoes

The discussion on tomato sandwiches reminded me
that I've been a little disappointed with the
tomatoes I've grown this year. Yes, they are
delicious and way better than those horrible
winter tomatoes but they are not fantastic.
Next growing season I want to try growing
a couple of heirloom varieties. I'd be interested
to know which heirlooms are the most sun and pest resistant and can be grown by a non-expert
gardener (ie, don't need a lot of babying).
Also, (and more important) which ones are the tastiest?
