do anyone have 2 names of the biggest, juiciest tomatoes that will grow here in the Dallas-t. Worth, Tx area and produced if started in the greenhouse and allowed to stayed there after the plastic is removed in late march. maybe april? The challenge here is beating the Texas heat. I wanted to try direct winter seeding method by Jucing Gardener with five gallons buckets as a covering inside my greenhouse. She grows in 5 gallon bucket. I'm going to grow directly in the soil and use the 5 gallon buckets as a cover, if needed slide another over it for more insulation only if it a cold day. I figured I need to use determinate tomatoes for the height in the greenhouse and indeterminate outdoors for vining. Open for ideas.

Thanks for posting this. I have a similar problem with big tomatoes. Our summers are just too hot. The cherries soldier through everything but a hard frost, but the big guys give up in July. My answer is to start earlier (brandywine, beefsteak, & cherokee purple) are already 6" high and up-potted to 3" peat pots. Hopefully, I'll get a harvest in before triple-digits hit. After that, I plan to bring them back inside and keep them under lights until October. Then, if they're still healthy, put them back out for the rest of the year. I already know I'll need bigger and better lights, but that's part of the plan.

I wish I could offer some advice, but I haven't been successful, yet. Every year I try something different. Hopefully, someone here can help us both. bounce

Thanks CN. I was looking at brandywine and beefsteak. Also krim and Amelia- amelia tomatoes. interesting farm. the writer saids he  has a 20,000 sq ft bed that has been producing vegetables 12 months a year for the past 32 years.  That is incredible.  He has been able to keep his bed healthy by constantly replenishing it with compost. 
I don't see the them, but I thought it was a interesting comment.

haas55, here is a link to Aggie Horticulture. I found a fairly large list of tomato varieties in all shapes and sizes and you get to pick your area to get your list. Not exactly sure where you fit into the map of The Great State of Texas but I selected B. I also noticed on the link I am supplying they have a Tomatoes 101 course for $20 that you might want to take a look at. I was lucky enough last August to meet the woman who runs the tomato variety trials at the experimental farm in Hamden, Ct. She is retiring after this year, 40 years. I learned a few things at her 25 minute tomato workshop. This was at the Plant Science Day here and it is a free event and has become a must attend event. Well here is the link.

If you get a chance scope it out and tell me what you think. I have been using the Texas A&M Tomato Problem Solver for years. I think Cornell finally has one but I learned how to identify many of the soil borne diseases of tomatoes on the Texas A&M site.

that site was helpful. I was able to compare some notes with other gardeners suggestions with what grew in my area. I'm trying a couple of rareseed tomatoes and others plants too. Here's one.
