If you're talking about yellow cherry tomatoes.

I've heard that a lot on the radio, I think it might be a NPR commercial.

With there being so many different varieties, flavors, textures, - No such thing as the best. I myself agree with a lot of heirloom growers in saying "depends on my mood." I love sweet Pineapples and the amazing citrus/mandarin orange hints in orange babes like Dr. Wyche's Yellow and Orange Banana, but I can get tired of them too. Snowberry is an amazing pretty much unbeatable one, Green Doctors I never get tired of but cannot say it is my favorite, and I'm always trying more purples that I loove. Same with greens. Haven't tried a green beefstake yet but am about to this year.

Tried over 7 kinds of yellows and none are in my top 10 list though.

Tomatoes for me, are like bananas for most others.

I just want one that will grow decent and produce some fruit.

If I find 2 or more, then I'll proclaim the GOAT tomato.

Cherries and plums are the ones that grow well.

Now, the BK tomato is BEST in PR.

Oh ok. I was saying that Sungold is my favorite yellow. Sunsugar is good too. Some like it better than Sungold, but I like a little acidity, just sweet doesn't work for me.

If you're asking everyone, then yes. Mine always grow nice and produced very heavily. I like them, but sometimes find them to be too sweet for a purple tomato and most of the time prefer others like Paul Robeson, it has more of the smokey earthy goodness. It is cooler temp lover though, and is best grown in shady areas. Funny thing with my experience on the Carbon is that it throws more funny shaped fruits than any other purple, even the Black Elephant which is a variety named for its common odd shaped fruit.
