I wrote about my excellent success with Solar Set, not to "mix things
up"  but to share my experience with other tomato lovers.  I
specifically said I did not like the taste of the heirloom large
tomatoes I've grown so that those of you who adore them would not be
tempted to try a hybrid just because of what I wrote.  I also named
hybrids with similar taste to the heirlooms I didn't like so as to let
people know what taste would not be found in Solar Set.  I named as many
as possible so as to give a broad spectrum and reach those who have
tried one or more.

I suggest, Chuck, that you do not try Solar Set as apparently our taste
in tomatoes differs.  But for those of you who are experimental and not
wedded to heirlooms as the only correct tomatoes to grow, I'd certainly
give it a try if the weather is hot where you are.   I assure you I am
not touting super market tomatoes.  I won't even buy them and go without
tomatoes 9 months of the year rather than eat orange wax.  But it seems
to me it is foolish not to sample hybrids which may have been improved
for reasons other than commerce such as resistance to temperature and
moisture fluctuations.
