If you make a considerable amount of salsa I would suggest that you grow the excellent paste variety Polish Linguisa. I have grown it and the Opalka variety for years now and the are the biggest, sweetest, meatiest salsa making tomatoes I have found. Linguisa is the hardier of the two, but I haven't had disease problems with either plant. As far as the other heirlooms listed above, what they are suggesting are great tomatoes, but most are slicers and not ideal for making salsa. You want a paste tomato for good salsa.

One tomato you likely haven't thought of is Super Fantastic, I just tried one last summer because a friend was growing it and it was one of the sweetest and most flavorful large sized tomatoes I've ever had. Plus they tend to be very perfectly shaped for slicing.
