What's the best tomato to grow in a hot, dry climate? Something that tastes great and doesn't need tons of maintenance. Currently, I'm growing Health Kick, Sun King, and Brandi wine. Health Kick is kicking the competition to the curb. Although the fruit is small (not cherry like), I'm getting plenty of fruit setting once the weather screamed into the 100s. Brandi wine seems to be struggling. There's only a few tomatoes and the plant is very leggy. Maybe that's how it's supposed to be.

Anyway, I'm looking to get a couple more plants to last through the end of summer (October here - yuck) and would like any recommendations. Plus, I'm trying out this whole blogging thing. There's only room for improvement here.

We have only got room for 4 tomato plants and this year they are not doing at all well.

So, are you taking the pictures for this blog? Or are you borrowing them from flickr?

If you're taking them, they're pretty darn good. Just sayin'.


Pictures are a mix from all over the place - my own and flickr included.
