There are many flavors to choose from I personally like the following, Sudduth Brandywine, Paul Robeson, Dr Wyches Yellow, and Guker's Special. The above are not the best producers but good taste. If you want production and decent taste, you might try Rutgers or Italian Market Wonder to start.

There are 1000's more varieties so there must be one you like.

If it has been raining alot in your area that will make most tomatoes taste bland in my experience.

Good Luck!

At the moment, I'm eating (from the greenhouse) Cuor di Bue, Black Cherry, Sungold and (best of all) Black Krim. They're all delicious!

I have to agree the two cherries mentioned by Sean Ph'lib are very good as well, Black cherry and Sungold.

If you want a small cherry with a great Burst of flavor, you might consider "Matt's Wild Cherry" as well.
