I am not Bill, but all I grow is heirlooms, no hybrids on my farm.  What 
I have found is that milage varies depending on your land.  I have 
tasted tomatoes at someone else's garden, loved it.  Grown it here, 
hated it.  Black Cherry produces and abundance at my farm,  my neighbor 
is lucky to get any fruit on her plants.  I have an area of my farm for 
testing new varieties and  types of plants,  so I trial them all the 
year before I plan to sell them.  There is a yahoo list called 
tomatomania that is all about heirloom tomatoes.  What does well in the 
hot dry south, doesn' t do well in the hot humid south, or in the cooler 
north, etc.  On that list, you could find someone in your growing area 
that could tell you what produces.

Bright Blessings,
