Recommended But Hard To Find Tomato

Question From: B. Johnson - MICHIGAN
Q: Nancy, My husband and I are also Master Gardeners. We LOVE to grow different tomatoes every year. Our tomatoes are self-watered from our rain barrels! I just read your article from this week. You mentioned searching for a hard to find variety or tomato recently. Which is it? Please tell me! :-)

A: My favorite tomato is the Burpee Hybrid 4th of July. It's not large, but the flavor is great. it ripens quickly and produces all season long. Last spring I went to Greece in early May and was unable to find them when I returned. Tried Jeff Chef's Independence Day. Not even close. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
