names of different tomato types
I am looking for all the different "types" of tomatoes (i.e. cherry, beefsteak, pear, etc.), not different "varieties." Also, if possible, a picture comparison chart showing the smallest to the largest in scale. Your help is greatly appreciated Bill
Tomatoes are typically classified by seed type (heirloom or hybrid), vine type (determinate or indeterminate) or by shape.
Here is a link to a very extensive database of tomato varieties. I would recommend clicking the tab to view tomatoes by shape - there you will see all the different varieties under shape (beefsteak, bell, blocky, cherry, currant, pear, etc.)
