Favorite type of tomato to eat and favorite type to grow?

The best eating tomato I can think of is a pink brandywine but I love to grow orange tomatoes because they just look so cool on  the vine especially ox heart orange.

Amish paste, Red Zebra, German Red.   Plus any cherry tomato that self sows.

Heirloom Cherokee Purple for me. Delicious!

Average is overrated

Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

I don't think there's a bad tomato. Be sure to put some pulverized limestone in there to prevent blossom end rot.
When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you - then you know your nation is doomed.

I am growing a Cherokee Purple for the first time ever.  Tell me more about the Red Zebra. Do not worry GSF but I always lime my tomatoes.
