Has anyone grown a "keeping" tomato they're happy with?  One that looks
like and tastes like a real tomato?  I grew one (I'd have to do research to
find out the variety) that tasted like a hotdog.  Blech!  A friend gave me
"Graham's good keeper" last year, and it was the first of 60 varieties to
rot after being picked.  Rev. Morrow's Long Keeper was fair, but I think we
ought to be able to do better.  The tomato that has kept longest and best
for me is the Yellow Stuffer, and that isn't known as a "keeping" tomato.
Thanks, Margaret L
