    These look great DM. I like the idea of the Pink Delicious attributes. I may try to secretly look for that one :)

    I'm trying a new variety of Jalepeno called La Bomba...for size but also for a mild flavour. It's pretty low on the scale of jalapenos, so I'm excited about that.

    You will find it difficult to beat San Marzano for making sauces! [​IMG]

    I've spent the last 30+ years searching for the best tomato! I may have to try your 3 varieties Dirtmechanic!
    Currently my top tomato varieties are Paul Robeson, Kellogs Breakfast, Amish Paste, and 2 cherry varieties called Brads Atomic Grape and Grape. I am also a fan of Sweet Millions.
    For canning and sauce, I find Amish paste far out performs San Marizano with quantity of fruit and flavor.
    I have a few new varieties to try this year.
    *Edited to add that I tried a slicer tomato called 'Girl girls weird thing' last year and it was AMAZING!
