Will take your comments on board regarding putting out early April regardless.
As for variety - such is life that we often have to sacrifice quantity for quality!
Having said that last year I grew a variety called Millefleur from Real Seed Catalogue - small yellow cherry tomato - sweet and super prolific - just make room for the plants as each truss is 2' round! I gave bags to everyone I came across from August to November and still ended up with more than I could handle - all from three plants.
A variety of plum toms - Agro F1 have also been favorites.
I have often found my plants to be late developers and anything sown too early gets leggy and pathetic looking- they do recover however once things warm up, so I have put back sowing dates each year to avoid the leggy stage.
