Is anyone currently growing heirloom tomatoes? I'm planning my spring/summer garden next year & have limited space for tomatoes but really want to try some heirloom varieties (green, yellow, orange, purple & striped). Since I don't have a lot of room what varieties are working for you in our CA heat? I'm located in Sac area. Thanks!

Growing heirloom tomatoes? Empty Heirlooms

I'm in hot and humid Missouri, but I found this link helpful. It recommends a few tomato varieties for both hot and humid, and hot and dry climates.

http://www.gardenofcures.com/page/page/4621296.htm

Larger tomato varieties don't usually handle the heat as well as roma and cherry types, but some do better than others. In spite of this summer's ongoing heat wave I'm still harvesting from my Italian Plum, Green Grape, Sweet 100, and volunteer large yellow tomato plant, variety unknown. My large red varieties have all given up.

I am growing Gilbertie paste, a fabulous tasting, high yield tomato. It is really meaty, few seeds, easy to peel when ripe. Growing heirloom tomatoes? Tomato-Gilbertie-Paste
I also have Purple Gypsy.

Look at all of these!
