Popular Tomato varieties

I am currently running trials on the tomato variety, Tropic.
I bought it originally to try due to it's disease resistance.
I do not want hybrids,
I want to be able to save my own seed.
This plant is producing standard size round tomatoes of 3 - 4 inches in dia.
I is suppose to be resistant to most diseases and will still produce when diseases strike.

Is there any other indeterminate, open pollinated varieties that will be equal or even better?

Do you have some pictures? Where did you get the seed?

Atkinson - F,N, GLS, and moderate resis. alternaria
Manalucie - F, GLS, gray mold, and tolerance to EB
Ozark Pink - V,F
Traveler 76 - F
Single Beefsteak - VFN - from Burpee, I'm not sure if these are the same as 'Super Beefsteak'
Sophya F1 - its a hybrid but its stable for TMV/ToMV resistance (Tm2a or Tm2^2 gene)
Royal Red Cherry (LA2088 or 76VFT1) - V,F,T,A - an OP that carries the same TMV/ToMV resistance gene ^above. VictorySeeds has a 'royal red chery' but I'm not sure if it's the same as this one.
Matt's Wild Cherry - late blight

There's more below that I missed but a lot of the OPs are either determinate or very hard to find. ... atoai.html ... atojr.html ... atosz.html
