I've tasted some of them, but not grown them.

I'm growing the Siberian right now. I'll be transplanting the seedling in a few weeks (maybe sooner).

Oregon Spring is very early. You can transplant the seedlings a whole month before last frost date.
If it gets too cold, the plant will stop growing and restart when it warms up again.
I planted 3 last year.
Flavor wasn't the best but having early toms was so great I didn't mind. It was better than buying the storebought.
Early tomato varieties? 07-19-10
My first harvest of an Oregon Spring tomato on July 19th. Remember, we usually don't put out tomato transplants till June 7th around here. Mine went in on April 24th but had cold freezing nite setbacks now and again.
In my neck of the woods I was surprised that these Oregon Springs, determinates that harvest all around the same time, started with new blossoms at the end of summer. I was going to pull the plants and toss them in the compost when I noticed new yellow blossoms. I was hoping for another flush of tomatoes, but we got a hard freeze that ended that thought.
Early tomato varieties? 10-02-11
This was taken on Oct 2nd with more blossoms and a few baby tomatoes. Too bad the freeze arrived too soon. Maybe if I had them in my A-frame I could have got a 2nd harvest from the plants.

Among the earlies, I'll be starting Beaverlodge Slicer, Early Cherry, Glacier and Stupice myself this year to see how early I can get tomatoes. I just love tomatoes.

I'm guessing that I don't count for the early or for taste because in the PNW we just get jazzed when we can pick a ripe tomato. It takes about twice as long here as it will where you are.

Hands down, Siltz was the best tasting early (late July-early August in PNW) tomato I've ever grown.
Persimmon was amazing but not very productive. It also has a huge stem end. In some areas of the garden (AM shade) I had an issue with the weight of the fruit cracking away from the stem making an inviting place for potato bugs (look like tailless mini armadillos) crawling in....yuck. But they were lovely otherwise.... I did worry about soil born disease, the foliage had a habit of curling down and touching the ground.

This year I have a whole collection of early tomatoes (they would be for most people, but are main to late season up here). A couple of Canadians, Manitoba and Beaverlodge Plum. (Last year I had Black Plum Paste whose micro climate might have been too shady, Hundreds of green fruit but few ripened tho advertised at 65 days), a Japanese hybrid, Momotaro, and a hanging basket salad size tomato called Silver Fur.
