Do heirloom tomatoes really taste better?

xena | Apr 29, 2007 02:37 PM

Our usuals are Better Boy, Early Girl, Beefsteak, some romas, cherry, etc and they taste awfully good to me right off the vine but I am wondering if for eating and cooking there's a difference in taste compared to heirlooms. I want to plant the best tasting varieties I can this year. We eat alot of tomatoes during the season and I would like to grow the tastiest ones to use in salads, sandwiches etc. If you'd like to name your favorites I'm all ears.

Thank you!
