There are now many varieties of tomato.

Do you usually buy the same sort, and do you have a favourite one that you buy more often?

I grow my own min Roma and also a larger variety that I have not had much luck with.

When I buy them,. I prefer the Roma ones, and also often buy the mini ones in punnets.

Tomatoes do not taste like they used to unless you grow them at home.

No , I just buy the big round ones mostly used for making gravy or the small ones for salad. Never paid attention to the variety.

When I say gravy - I do not mean the one made for meat. It is for vegetables.

I adore the Kumato (brownish colour skin) tomatoes,and I started to grow them from seeds taken from a few I bought at the supermarket ages ago!!!Their flavour is just so old fashioned,and I can enjoy them like fruit!! I also grow the tiny grape tomatoes which just pop up all over my garden without me even planting them!!! I have been picking up to half a kg each day for the past month and I share them with all my friends/neighbours!! If I happen to need to buy a tomato or two,I always buy for flavour,not because of price!!
I don't pay attention to the type of tomatoes I buy. I usually buy the cherry size but I don't mind which variety

I'm not fussed as long as they are flavoursome. I like to section them, dust them with salt and eat them raw. I also like the tiny ones and the burst in your mouth when you bite into them. Yum! My husband grows our own and has just made up a batch of tomatoe sauce - we've had a big crop this year. The photo is one of his more unusual fruits.
I like cherry tomatoes for snacks and salads, and Roma for pasta sauce, but to be perfectly honest I tend to buy whatever is on special at the time.
I don't eat many fresh tomatoes...do like sundried ones and some tomato sauces in cooking

Nope. Its all good to me.

I like most of the smaller varieties - so juicy.

Truss tomatoes. They've the 'smell' of tomatoes I remember as a kid!
I just love organic cherry tomatoes. Bu they have to be Red.
We grow different varieties and I've two favourites, grosse lisse which we grew up with and Roma because they aren't as big and I can use a whole one with none leftover.
Not really, as I cannot eat them raw, however if the are skinned and cooked I enjoy them.
I enjoy the various tomato sauces and pastes made of tomato.
there was one called china I think a very good and tatsy one, have not seen this tomato in a very long time, like many other good vegs not in the shops anymore.
I love tomatoes. I buy the tomatoes on the vine where possible and I like grape tomatoes rather than cherry tomatoes. Roma tomatoes are not my favourites but are delicious roasted.
I have not had much success growing tomatoes either- only little tiny ones that grow wild, that I call berry tomatoes. One year my when attempting to grow my own,myplants died while covered in fruit at various stages of ripening. I carefully picked every piece and made the most delicious colourful tomato chutney.
