My wife said she is tired of tomatoes having a lot of hard core and seeds. She wants me to find some with better features for cutting up and canning. I have grown Better and Big Boys, Jetstar ect.
What are some without the big cores but that grow good vines. sucker good, not bad to burn-up from the bottom and produce good. Well I am serious even if my question sounds dumb.
Thanks for the input in advance.

I grow Opalka which is a funny shaped heirloom paste tomato with very few seeds, little or no core, and not as juicy as a slicing tomato. And it has a great flavor unlike Romas. But like most paste tomatoes, it can be prone to blossom-end rot, but that usually clears up later in the season. It's not the most abundant producer but does put out some good tomatoes. Also look for some oxheart type tomatoes - bigger, thicker, but also with few seeds. Best place I have found for tomato seeds is online, since all the stores carry your typical Burpee or Ferry Morse varieties.

Oh and that is if you want to grow from seed... as for plants, not sure where you would get em, some online stores do ship live plants though. There is supposedly a place in Dickson that has a lot of unusual and open pollinated tomato seedlings.

Roma's are good for sauces and such.
