I am getting ready to place an order with Chuck Wyatt's Heirloom tomatoes 
before the price goes up. Here's a list of the ones I am thinking of trying, 
and I would like to get feedback on people's likes and dislikes of each one. 
I am in Southern Calif, zone 9, and I grow all of my tomatoes in large 
containers. If anything I have listed would not be suitable for containers, 
please let me know. Thanks.
1. Anna Russian
2. Black Plum. I love cherry tomatoes, and I think this would be a fun one to 
3. Box Car Willie
4. Red Brandywine
5. Brandywine, Suddath's Strain. I've heard that this one tastes wonderful.
6. Dr. Carolyn
7. Druzba
8. Earl of Edgecomb
9. Eva Purple Ball
10. German Red Strawberry
11. Green Grape
12. Green Zebra. Recently tried this one and loved it.
13. Martino's Roma. I want to grown one paste variety. Not sure which one 
would be best,
but this one looks good.
14. Omar's Lebanese.
15. Pruden's Purple
16. Red Robin. Says this is a dwarf cherry tomato. Should do well in a small 
17. Silvery Fir Tree. Says it is small and should be good for containers.
18. Totem. Another dwarf plant. Should do well in a container.
19. White Queen.
20.Window Box. Another small one.

I'm going to have to cut this down to about 10-12 since it's all I have room 
for. I appreciate all input. Thanks.
