Found a new (to me) tomatoe I like

I tried several new tomatoes this year because they were short season. But I found that they still produce some fruit even in the 100+ temps that we have had. They are the Arkansas traveler and the 4th of july tomatoe.
They don't make big maters but they still produce fruit about 2" across.

Congrats.

Ark Trav is a good one. It loves the heat and produces heavily. I never did 4th of July before. Don't forget to save seeds and try them next year they should do as good or better.

Hopefully better just due to weather I am in your basic weather system and it totally sucked this year. Maybe you noticed. :lol:

4th of July is a decent tomato. It's the most flavorful early tomato I've ever grown. The skins are a little on the tough side, but I can pick them the third week of June in Zone 7, earlier If I protect the plants w/t plastic early on. Far superior to Early Girl, and just as early.
