I'm going to try "Mr. Stripey" again this year. It's one hard strain of tomato to grow, but has a better taste than anything I've ever grown. Prone to every tomato disease/blight/rot known from my experience. I'm giving it one more try.
That's a nasty one. Did you try varieties that are said to be
resistant, or did you just try standard ones?
Amelia and BHN 602 are supposed to be among the most resistant. I've
never heard of BHN 602, but Amelia is popular around here.
Correction: That isn't Amelia that's popular here. It's Amarillo,
which won a local county taste contest for the past couple of years.
I don't know anything about Amelia, either, but it's supposed to be
very disease resistant, including all three types of Fusarium, and it
does well in the Southeast.
I'm afraid that my naming error has complicated things. Amelia is the
one that is claimed to be very disease-resistant. Amarillo is the one
that won a local taste test. It's a largish cherry tomato. I don't
know how disease-resistant it is.
