We include this article early in the year so that those who grow tomatoes from seed have time to receive their order before it is time to plant.
The results below are from 4 different locations in Kansas as well as the Missouri location near St. Jo. Our most western location was near Hays. We list the top 10 slicers by yield (lbs) and by average fruit size (oz) at the end of this article.
If you want large tomato with good yield, then BeefMaster should be considered. However, fruits can be fluted. If total yield is important, Summerpick and Jet Star were the best performers. Of these two, Summerpik had a bit better yield as well as larger fruit.
We would suggest you continue to grow varieties that have done well for you in the past but consider including one or more of these on a trial basis.
